Welcome to March!
Congratulations, Art Contest Participants and Winners!
Patrick Henry Receives Incredible Recognition of Artists
Jayla Rivers is a kindergarten student in Ms. Willard's class. She has a big smile and an even bigger heart. She loves her friends and her teacher, and uses every day in school to learn and grow and find happiness. It is no surprise that her artwork displays the same joy she feels in her heart.
Jaleah Andre is a fourth grade student in Ms. Ivory's class. Though she is a relatively new student to Patrick Henry (she joined us in October), we already know her to be polite, kind, and oriented towards care of others. Her artwork displays a ballerina dancing to the music, and it almost mirrors Jaleah's spirit - beautiful, sweet, and happy.
We are so proud of our students for this incredible honor, and we are so thankful for Ms. Kellie Godfrey, our art teacher who makes sure our students always have the chance to shine. Art contests are not easy to coordinate, but Ms. Godfrey handles them well, and always gives our students opportunities to be the true artists they are!

Gateway to the Great Outdoors
Our GGO partnership has shifted over the years from in-person to virtual experiences, from field trips to guest speakers. We love seeing our partners every time no matter the context because they challenge us to bring the outdoors in, and to always take ourselves to the outside world.
