MAP Testing 

Map Testing

ESOL/ELL/EL Students in Grades KK-5 will be taking the ACCESS test in the next couple of weeks. The letter for this will come to parents from your child’s teacher and/or your child’s ESOL Teachers soon.

This test is Face-to-Face only.

If you are regularly a bus rider, transportation will be provided, based on the return to school survey form Ms. Moore sent in January.


Signage and Preparations 

Return to In-Person Signage

As we wait for guidance on the return date to school, we are preparing the building by posting signage to guide us safely in the building. We are posting directional signage and placing social distancing reminders throughout the building. We are working diligently to provide a safe environment when your child returns.


Composition Notebooks  

Composition Notebooks

Henderson Mill Elementary School is collecting Composition Notebooks for our students to use as STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) journals.
In order to maintain STEAM certification, our awesome educators have to go through a very rigorous review process. One of the requirements is that every student must maintain a STEAM notebook throughout the year, to demonstrate how STEAM principles are interwoven into every aspect of their curriculum.
If you have any extra composition notebooks lurking in your closets (wide or college ruled, doesn’t matter) – please consider dropping them into the labeled plastic bin at the school entry at your convenience. Feel free to purchase new and donate as well if you would like to help!
Thanks so much for your support!
