Henry Leavenworth Elementary School

Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year at Henry Leavenworth Elementary! We have been diligently preparing for the arrival of your child/children and believe that this year will be a great educational experience. Each year our faculty and staff strives to provide high quality instruction in a positive and productive learning environment, and we will maintain that tradition.

Henry’s Back to School Night was a complete success! We believe that the partnership between home and school is vital to the success of your child/children. Therefore, we will make every effort to keep you informed on your child/children’s progress throughout the year and welcome your participation in school activities.

We are excited to announce that we have added highly trained new members to the Henry family. Among them is our new Assistant Principal/Curriculum Specialist, Mrs. Johnnie Santos. Mrs. Santos and I have worked all summer to carefully prepare organizational systems and high impact instructional initiatives that will set the stage for academic achievement and character development.

This year we will continue to encourage students to be a “light” at Henry by following the three B’s: Be Safe, Be Responsible, and Be Respectful. Our positive behavior initiative will highlight students who model this character.

Also, we have changed our school lunch menu to a digital format located on our website. If you do not have access to a computer, your child’s teacher will be happy to provide you with a hard copy.

Thank you, in advance, for your help in bringing your child/children to school on time each day. If there is anything I can do to help your child/children have a fantastic school year, please do not hesitate to call me.

Mr. Kevin Lunsford
