Hennessey Elementary School News


February was a short, busy and fun month for our Heroes! We began the month by celebrating the 100th and 101st day of school. Students in grade 3 celebrated the hundredth day by dressing like they were 100 years old and spent the day doing fun activities around the number 100. On the 101st day of school our school dressed up like they were in the 101 Dalmatians!

As we do every month our students are always finding ways to go above and beyond to make the world a better place. Three students in grade 4, Kyley, Jaylianna, and Caramia created a service project to sell handmade jewelry and raise money for a cause that is important to them, The Ovarian Cancer Alliance. They handmade bracelets, rings, and earrings and sold them at student lunches. They raised $98 and will present the alliance with a check at our next assembly!

The highlight of February for most students, though, was “Lunch with a Loved One” Students were able to bring someone to eat lunch with them. So many of our students had parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts and friends come and have lunch with them. Olivia C in grade one said lunch with her nana was “amazing!” Sophia in grade one said, “I loved it!” and Olivia M said bringing her Tia “made her so happy,” We hope to be able to do this again when the weather gets warmer!

Our students continue to show what it means to be a hero everyday!
