Jump Rope For Heart
Dear Parents, Your child may soon talking about "the Life-Saving Puppy Squad" - this will explain! J
Henderson Elem is a proud partner with The American Heart Association & The American Stroke Association, and we would like to teach our students the importance of taking care of their hearts along with helping individuals who are affected by heart disease and stroke. We are asking for your help to spread the word to your family, friends, and co-workers to assist The American Heart Association in making a difference for people who are affected by heart disease (which is our nations #1 killer of both men and women) and stroke (which is the fourth leading cause of death).

We are requesting that ALL donations are made ON-LINE using our Jump Rope for Heart webpage. When the link below is displayed on the screen, you will see two options, “Join Team”. Please click “Join Team” next to our school name!! J  This will ensure that I have a record of which students have registered and which ones have earned their ‘Thank You’ gifts for their efforts. This will also make things easier when it comes time to distribute the gifts.

Our theme this year is “PAWS to SAVE a LIFE” our event is featuring the Life-Saving Puppy Squad!! J

Students will participate in our Jump Rope for Heart Event during P.E. class to further learn the importance of developing heart-healthy habits and learn how your fundraising efforts will help support cardiovascular research and will help save lives across the country. They could also help us get NEW Physical Education equipment for our school!


Students will be receiving “The Life-Saving Puppy Squad” for donations raised. Students can earn all 6 Life-Saver Pups and other Thank You gifts depending on the amount of life-saving donations they each raise! J


**I am the Point of Contact for this event so any questions you may have or can be directed to me!**

Important School Crossing News

Top Dog Attendance
New "TOP DOG" Attendance Incentive coming to Henderson!!       Henderson Elementary will be implementing the "Top Dog" Attendance
Award this school year.  The purpose of our program is to encourage students
to come to school on time and remain in school all day in order to maximize
learning engagement.

Each Monday one class from every grade level that had the best average class
attendance during the prior week will receive a "Top Dog" of the Week Award to display in their classroom.

At the end of each month all students who came to school on time and remained in school all day every day that month will have their name placed in a drawing. 
One boy and one girl from each grade level will win "Blizzard," a small stuffed
husky dog, to keep for their very own.

Our goal is to help each and every student at Henderson become a "Top Dog" Husky!

Parent Portal Up and Running Again
Parent Portal is up and running and I have processed all requests. Remember that you need to print the e-mail that is generated to your account and bring it to the school with a photo id in order for your account to be activated.
 I have received several inquiries wondering when Parent Portal will be "Synched" or "Updated" adding students that are new to Henderson to an already active account. This is not an automatic process.  Please e-mail me at willeysl@pwcs.edu if you need a student added to an active account.
If you are new to Henderson and would like to request a Parent Portal Account there is a tab under "For Parents" on the side link where you can do this. Once your account is processed you will receive an e-mail which you have to print out and bring into Henderson with a government issued photo ID. Once I receive this signed and verified e-mail print out I can activate your account.
If you have Parent Portal questions contact- Sarah Willey willeysl@pwcs.edu
