Hennessey Heroes Will Continue to RISE
Hennessey Elementary continues to rise as the 2018-2019 school year comes to a close. Families and students enjoyed a fun week celebrating reading during “Believe in Yourself” Reading Week. Students participated in Poetry Slam where they performed poems that they created or recited. Our 1st Annual Family Engagement Steam Night Event was held on May 22. The night was filled with activities that encourage critical thinking skills with activities in science, technology, engineering, arts and math. Students represented Hennessey at the Chance to Dance Performance at PPAC, which is a fun night for all. Hennessey spirit days continue to be a hit throughout the year. Students enjoyed red, white and blue day held in honor of Memorial Day, Hero Day during High Five Friday, Fitness Day and Light it up Blue in honor of Autism Awareness. Olivia, 3rd grader, likes High Five Friday because she enjoys “giving the big kids a high five.” 2nd grade teacher, Mrs. Fernandes loves High Five Friday because “she loves the connection that happens between the high school students and elementary students. I love that they are starting our students’ day in a positive way.” The Hennessey community showed their generosity in raising money for Heart Disease with Jump Rope for Hearts. Students and families raised a total of $1500.00! We are looking forward to finishing the year strong as Hennessey Heroes showing our Core Values of Safe, Respectful and Proud and Attendance Heroes. Here, Ready To Learn, On Time, Everyday. As summer approaches, we wish you all a safe, fun, and relaxing summer. Don’t forget to read, read, read. Chris, a Hennessey kindergarten student, says “the more you read, the better you get at reading!” We will see you all in August!!!
