We'd like to welcome all of our Henking families back to school! The halls were filled with smiles and laughter, greeting old and new friends alike. We are very excited to start another great year of learning with all of you!
Andrea Beaty, author of Iggy Peck Architect and Rosie Revere Engineer visited Henking on May 5th. Her visit was sponsored by the PTA. Please check out her website about her and her books at: http://www.andreabeaty.com/ There are great activities to go along with her books on the Teachers & Parents section on her website as well!
We are pleased to announce all first and second grade students participated in a Bicycle Training and Safety unit during their PE classes in April. Students brought their own properly fitted helmet from home. For fitting tips you may choose to visit: www.helmets.org/fit.htm Instructional areas had daily targets including: Bicycle Safety, proper helmet fitting, safe-handling skills, coordination, balance and motor planning. A special thanks to the parent volunteers that guided students in small groups around school property and Crowley Park. This was made possible through grant funding from the GEF.
