Dear Henderson Families,

Our staff welcomes you back to a fantastic 2018-2019 school year! I am incredibly excited to begin a new year as Principal of Henderson Middle School and look forward to building positive relationships with students, families and community. The field of education is a one of my greatest passion and ensuring that all students have access to a quality education in order to be successful in today’s society is my main priority. Henderson Middle School has tremendous educators who care and want to do what is best for all students. It is an honor to become a part of this team as we move forward to do great things for all students.

As our school team prepares for our students return, this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with many special events. Our focus for this school year centers around academic excellence for all students and creating a culture of respect, high expectations and a strong school community.  You will hear about PBIS (Positive Behaviors Interventions and Supports), School-Wide Assemblies, Family Engagement Nights and other positive school initiatives that will be planned to meet the diverse needs of our school family.

Family engagement in the school setting is the greatest predictor of student success in school and later years. In order to have a positive and productive year, we ask all families to join us during school activities and events whenever possible. Your involvement is important and valued by your child and our school team. Our committed staff looks forward to that close partnership with all families. We encourage you to contact us when the need arises, and stay current about your child’s studies, class assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings. Let’s have a great school year and looking forward to seeing all families, soon. I also encourage families to come and visit with me at the school for individual conversations to talk about ways to support your middle school student. Let’s have a great year!

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Yaa Appiah-McNulty
