Protecting Your Family Against the Flu

Cold and flu season is here. Please consult with your child’s physician to find out when flu shots will be available for your family. Students with chronic health conditions, including asthma, and those who are immunocompromised are highly encouraged to obtain a flu shot early. Click here to review more information about how to tackle the flu.


Read, RIGHT, Run - Bell Ringing for the Salvation Army

We will be bell ringing again this year!  Use the link below to sign up for a time.  It looks like the 6:30-8:00 pm slots are still open!  The slots are half hour increments and we know based on last year’s success that this is a great community involvement event with the money raised going to a great cause!

Papa John’s Night

Last night was our Papa John’s Fund raiser which supports our School-Wide Positive Behavior Support efforts.  We teach kids lesson on how to be safe, respectful and responsible in all parts of the building including the playground and bus! Students earn Soaring Eagle Awards and are recognized often for making great choices regarding their behavior.  We appreciate your support in our efforts to keep Henderson a fantastic environment to learn in!


Note from Nurse


As you are cleaning out closets this Holiday Season to fit in new clothes, please know that I can really use your previously used sweatpants in mostly smaller sizes (K-2nd grade sizes). Jeans have to "fit" where sweatpants can cover a variety of sizes. Thanks so much!



Thanks to all of those who ordered Gift Cards. Script Gift Cards will be available for pick up on December 16th, 6-8pm in the Henderson lobby.  Please note cards WILL NOT be sent home with students. Please contact Wendy Taylor @ 636-922-0593 or with questions.

The PTO is looking forward to Eagle Fest on February 28th.  Eagle Fest is an indoor carnival with games and inflatables.  There will also be Raffle Baskets.
