Hennessey Heroes will finish the Year Strong!!!!
Hennessey Heroes are wrapping up 2020 by showing our dedication and commitment to being Feinstein Junior Scholars and continuing to make the world a better place by helping others. Our PTA organized a food drive where families and students donated items for food baskets. With the help of our community partner, the Hope and Faith Drive we were able to create many baskets for families in need. Julian, a 2nd grader thinks “it’s important to help others. You can help them do something that they have never done before like multiplication.” We are also holding a “Good Deeds Jubilee” from November 30-December 11th and sharing our good deed stories to the Feinstein Foundation. Lots of families will be enjoying their delicious gourmet pies during the holidays from the first PTA fundraiser of the year. Spirit days were a hit in November with Dress Like a Tourist and World Kindness Day as students are looking forward to one of the most popular spirit days in December of Pajama Day. Second grader, Sebastian says that it’s fun to dress up in one color and find things to wear in that color. The Hennessey staff continues to focus on our core values teaching each month. The core values for the month of December are GRATITUDE and GIVING BACK and students are excited for the monthly activities around that theme. We began to celebrate students whether in person or distance using positive office referrals where students are recognized by being a role model to others, by going above and beyond to show respect, kindness and empathy to others. Josiah, a 1st grader is happy to be a Hennessey Hero and reminds us that heroes listen and are always safe. As the year 2020 comes to a close, we want to thank the students, families, staff and community members for their continued hard work and dedication each day. We know it has not been easy, but we know that if we continue to work together, we will continue to RISE each day!!!!
