Greetings All Stars,
It was so wonderful to walk around our classrooms this week and see all the exciting activities that were happening at our school. Our educators used many ways to learn about you and I sat in and learned some interesting facts about our teachers too. Our Heninger teachers are caring, compassionate, and professional....I am honored to work alongside a staff like this. We also have a dynamic assistant principal, Mrs. Silvia Martinez and wonderful counselor, Mrs. Julia Montes. We are pleased to welcome the following support to our school community this year:
Ms. Josie Castillo, Assistant Principal (full time!!!!!)
Playworks (third year)
Youth Cinema Project
Capital Group (Irvine)
Western Youth Services
Orange County Health Care Agency
On top of these supports, we offer an All Star Ballet Folklorico Group, Mariachi Estrellas, Suzuki Violin for our elementary students, and a robust after school program (Engage 360). We will be opening a Community Wellness Center this year that will be staffed by Carina Valencia and we have an active PTO that assist our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) incentives.
Our focus this year will be on fortifying Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS), so that our school community is maximizing our resources to create the strongest support system possible in the areas of academics, behavior, and social/emotional health. It is a testament to our whole school community and support staff that we currently have waiting lists in many of our grades. Stop by...or visit our Twitter page @heningerschool to find out what all the fuss is about.
Go All Stars!
William Skelly, Principal
