I would like to report that the school ratings for the 17-18 school year were made available this past Friday. I am very pleased to report that Patrick Henry School continues to be a Level 1 school! As we continue to transform our teaching and learning at Patrick Henry through Personalized Learning, we can achieve our goals while pushing ourselves to collaborate and work even closer together to be a Level 1 plus school in the near future.
Next week Tuesday, October 31st, students will be allowed to wear Halloween costumes with parent approval. However, it is important to remember the following: 1. No face paint. 2. No masks 3. No toy weapons of any kind.
If your child would like to bring a treat to share, the candy has to be store-bought. We can only have 2 events where non-nutritional store-bought items can be distributed to students If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the office.
