Keeping our Students Safe

Please ensure that you carefully read the packaging of any treats your child brings for snacktime. We are a nut free school. Packaging that reads “may contain traces of nuts” is not allowed. We greatly appreciate your support in keeping our students and staff with life threatening nut allergies safe.

Halloween Dance Great Fun!

Our Halloween Dance last night was a huge success! It was so nice to see so many students and parents dressing up in costume, dancing and having fun. A big thank you to the many volunteers and school council members for organizing, decorating and ensuring every detail from the food to the amazing DJ was covered. It was definitely a haunting night enjoyed by all! 

Halloween Guidelines at Henderson Ave.

Related image  In advance of Halloween, we’d like to share with our families that no food treats are allowed at Henderson Ave. P.S.  If you wish to send a “treat” on Halloween day for your child’s classroom, it can not be candy or a food product, instead it could be pencils, stickers etc.

Oct 31 is an instructional day.  Students will have the opportunity to wear costumes in the afternoon. As we adhere to the Safe Schools Policy, no masks or replicas of any weapons are allowed.  This applies to JK-Grade 8 students. Please be sensitive to the nature of your child’s costume as we have younger students beginning at age 3 in kindergarten at Henderson.

Looking forward to seeing your family at the Halloween Dance, Thur Oct 27th 6-8pm.

Reminder: Friday is a PA Day

Just a quick reminder that Friday is not a school day for students. The Henderson staff will be engaging in activities around academic achievement with a math focus and creating an equitable and inclusive school environment.
