Principal's Message

Dear Henry Leavenworth Families,

As the school year comes to a close, our minds and hearts are filled to the brim. It’s been a great year! What a school! Together we’ve learned much and shared experiences that will long remain with us in the years to come. The strength of our community and wholehearted passion to make our school a wonderful place of learning for our children primarily but for all of us makes Henry Leavenworth truly a special place.

To those of you who are leaving us for new places and adventures, we wish you all the best. Congratulations to our very capable 5th graders who are onto a new stage in their academic career! And, well-wishes, with saddened hearts, to Mrs. Nicholson as she retires. You’ve been a gift to us for 26 years and will undoubtedly be missed.

For your calendaring pleasure, the first day of school begins on August 15th. Save the Date for our Book Mobile on August 9th and our  Back-to-School Night is August 14th.

Until then, enjoy a restful and replenishing summer with your families!

Many thanks,
Kevin Lunsford

Henry Third Graders Gear Up for Testing with Math Boot Camp

Third graders across the district are taking their first crack at Kansas State Assessments this year. To help prepare their students, the third grade team at Henry Leavenworth Elementary organized a math boot camp. Teachers said they knew their students would do amazing, but wanted a chance to give them a boost of confidence. Students spent the day rotating to each team member where they were taught a specific math skill that they needed to brush up on for the test. They also learned strategies and tips to help them do their best. They were able to do some hands on activities while working together.
