Hennessey School News


Hennessey Elementary kicked off their Move in May with Jump Rope for Heart. “Move in May” is an annual school wide initiative to increase the amount of physical activity we get each day. Carter, 1st grader, likes to kick the soccer ball and get the basketball in the hoop when he wants to get extra exercise. The Hennessey Community raised an impressive $2645 that we donated to the American Heart Association. That was a school record and we are so THANKFULl to all who participated and donated. Aven, 2nd grader, felt like it was important to raise a lot of money because you could save someone’s life. Way to go, Aven!! We wrapped up our Move in May with Field Day which is a student favorite at Hennessey. #HennHeroPride

In May, students focused on the core value of TEAMWORK which tied in nicely with our Move In May initiative and spirit days. Our spirit days this month were Fitness Day and Red, White and Blue Day. We will wrap up our school year with our class colors and beach day! #HennesseyLovesASpiritDay

Our Hennessey students in Grade 3-5 exhibited EFFORT and PERSEVERANCE during the administration of our Math RICAS state testing in May. 3rd grader, Mariah was asked what perseverance means. She said, “Work hard and try your best and work it out.” We are proud of all of our heroes for their hard work! In June, we will close our school year focusing on the core value of PRIDE and INTEGRITY. #CoreValueTeaching

Kindergarten and first grade students had an amazing learning OPPORTUNITY with “The Chick Project” last month. Students learned all about the life cycles of chickens and what living things need. One of our Hennessey kindergarten students, Jayden, said that they stay in the incubator for one day after they hatch so they can dry their feathers. Students counted down to hatching with great anticipation!

A huge THANK YOU to the Hennessey PTA and all the families for celebrating teachers and staff during teacher appreciation week in May! We APPRECIATE all your thoughtfulness. We THANK YOU for entrusting us with your children each day! #partnership

The Little Free Library will be available to the Hennessey community throughout the summer months. Please feel free to visit the library, bring a book to donate or take a book to read. #LeadersAreReaders

We want to shout out our 5th grade Hennessey Heroes who will be heading to middle school in the next few months. We know they will continue to do their best and be their best each day! We asked some of our 5th graders their thoughts about Hennessey. Kallie said what she will miss the most are the positive attitudes around the building and the fun extra things like Field Day and Hero Assemblies. Bella, thinks the best part is “the number of kind people there are.” Maxx’s favorite thing is problem solving and Tomas’ favorite thing is being a role model. Jillian thinks the best part of Hennessey are “the teachers because they are very nice and understanding.” #OnceAHennHeroAlwaysAHennHero

We know that Hennessey Heroes show our core values of being SAFE, RESPECTFUL and PROUD not just when school is in session but throughout the summer. Don’t forget to check out our google classroom throughout the summer for fun and engaging activities that our staff has created that will keep the learning alive throughout July and August. We know that if we continue to move forward, push ourselves and each other to be our very best, that we will continue to RISE! We wish you all a safe, fun, and relaxing summer vacation and look forward to seeing you in August for a brand new school year!
