A Message From The Principal

Dear Henry Hawk Families,


This week is teacher appreciation week. We appreciate all of the hard work our Henry teachers and staff do every day to support the learning of our students. We would love for as many of our Henry students and families to show your appreciation for our teachers and staff. Please see in our newsletter below on how you can participate.


Unfortunately, we had one classroom that had to quarantine due to a positive case.


Please remember that if your child tests positive for COVID-19, please complete the self report on the following link: https://chicagopsprod.service-now.com/health?id=cps_self_report


As always, we will continue working to provide your children with a safe, healthy learning environment where they can reach their full potential.

Pre-K Application

CPS' Application for Pre-K opens on April 19th.


If you have a child who will be 4 years old by the start of the 2022-2023 school year, please stop by outside the main office during parent teacher conferences on April 20th to enroll.


(It is important to note that the priority rules from CPS' Office of Early Childhood have changed this year. Students who have siblings at a school and/or live within a 1.5 mile radius of a school now receive priority for enrollment.

PBIS Reset Pictures

Henry students were sent on a scavenger hunt around the school to reset our PBIS expectations. The Climate and Culture team sent the students on an adventure to gather the letters at 10 different stations to unscramble the word. Look at the last two photos to find the secret work the students solved.
