Principal's Message

Dear Henry Leavenworth Families,

As we close out November. It is a wonderful time to give thanks for the many blessings in our lives. I am certainly thankful for the many blessings in my life, including working with the amazing children, parents, teachers, and staff at Henry Leavenworth Elementary.

As the weather begins to change over the next few weeks I would like to encourage students to dress appropriately as the fresh air always does the children well and we will be going outside to recess. With that responsibility comes into place as our lost and found items begin to grow and it is amazing how many jackets we are accumulating. I encourage parents to write their students name inside of their jackets/coats as many students’ jacket/coats do look alike.

The Staff at Henry Leavenworth would like to thank all of our parents that attended Parent Teacher Conferences! The partnership that we develop between home and school enriches your children’s education and helps them be successful. We definitely cannot do it without your support!

During the month of December our Character Trait will be Cooperation. When children demonstrate self -control they have the opportunity to earn Bee Bucks and all students will need 20 Bee Bucks this quarter to attend the Bee Buck Party in December without any office referrals.

The office staff always appreciates a phone call when your student is out for the day. Please remember students get 10 excused absences and then all future absences are unexcused without a doctor’s note. So if you are making a visit to the doctor ask for a doctor’s note to bring to the school for a medical excused absence.
Many thanks,
Kevin Lunsford
