Spring is around the corner, and C.W. Henry Elementary School is fluttering with activity!
- Come see an amazing production of “The Lion King” on March 3 and 4.
- Our family dance and fundraising raffle will take place on March 24.
- Visit the Scholastic Book Fair April 17-21.
- Have fun with neighbors and friends at the Ping Pong Playground fundraising event on April 29!
All of these special events are, of course, just icing on the cake. If you’d like to take a peek at what’s going on inside the classrooms at Henry, join us for a tour of the school, at Greene Street and Carpenter Lane, on the third Thursday of each month. The next one will be March 16. Tours start at 9 a.m.
Find out more about any of these events at www.cwhenrypta.org.
Playground renovation update: We are so excited by the plans to improve the safety, function and aesthetics of our lower schoolyard! Our fundraising is off to a great start. Students ran a penny drive in the fall, followed by a successful crowd-funding campaign that continues to generate revenue. Keep an eye out for invitations to Ping Pong night April 29 — it's an adults-only party with prizes and home-brewed beer, and a great excuse to challenge your neighbors to see who rules the table!
We are focusing our efforts on writing grants and soliciting partnerships this spring, so if you have any suggestions or connections, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Donations toward the playground, or in-kind donations that we can use in our fundraising raffles, are always appreciated.
