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
