You're Invited! Teacher Meet and Greet Dates

Please join your child's teacher for a Meet and Greet at Henking! See the attached flyers for your child's grade level. Parents/guardians and children are welcome!

Save Your Plastic Caps

40 billion plastic bottles are produced each year in the US, mostly for beverages. Two-thirds of them end up in landfills. All things considered, this is not good for the environment. Avoid landfills by recycling your plastic bottle caps at Henking School. Just rinse them, dry them and send them into the LRC. Students can then use them as part of our STEM Challenges.
