Henry Leavenworth Elementary School

Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the 2015-2016 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.

We believe that the partnership between home and school is vital to the success of your child/children. Therefore, we make every effort to keep you informed on your child/children’s progress throughout the year and welcome your participation in school activities. Therefore, your child's teacher, 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 “SUPER ” at Henry Leavenworth by following the three B’s: Be Safe, Be Responsible, and Be Respectful. Our positive behavior initiative will highlight students who model this character. Our school theme this year is "Super Henry Leavenworth Elementary!" Additionally, you may hear your child discuss earning Super B Bucks. These are small cards students receive for following our school's three B's.

Furthermore, please notice that our regular school hours have changed to:

New Hours 8:15 a.m.-3:15 p.m.
New Breakfast Hours 7:45 a.m.-8:05 a.m.

We will have days throughout the year that are designated as Late Start Days for teacher training (please see the district calendar on the Leavenworth USD 453 website). On these days the school hours are as follows:

Late Start Hours 9:45 a.m.-3:15 p.m.
Late Start Breakfast Hours 9:15 a.m.-9:35 a.m.

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.

Lastly, our arrival and dismissal procedures will be discussed at Back-to-School night on August 17th from 5:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. We look forward to seeing you all at Henry Leavenworth!

Mr. Kevin Lunsford
