Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Mrs. Henley's webpage! I have been teaching Kindergarten at Mno Grant Elementary since the year it opened in 1998. I was born and raised in the Bay Area and follow in the footsteps of my mom who also taught Kindergarten in Antioch. I love Kindergarten! This web page is a work in progress so please check back frequently for updates. Especially in the midst of the pandemic, things change frequently. I will do my best to update with information about school year 2020-2021 as I learn what, when, and how we will be doing things!
Class Routines and Procedures
For the 2020-2021 school year
Kindergarten hours are:
We are still working on the routines and procedures we will use for a safe return to school.
Mno Grant is a uniform school. All students are expected to be dressed in accordance with our school uniform policy. More information about the uniform is available in the front office. If we do return to campus, I will be doing some of my teaching outside in our garden area. Hats for sunny days and coats for chilly days may be needed.
Kindergarten students may be eating lunch at school. Lunches may be bought in the cafeteria or brought from home. Milk is available for purchase also. Water bottles are allowed for drinks in class but please no colored or sugary drinks. Please label all lunch bags, Tupperware, and water bottles. Although students may not share food, with so many peanut allergies we ask that if you can avoid sending nut products for your child, we would appreciate it.
Homework: We still do not know how much parents will be asked to do at home in terms of homework and distance online learning. What I DO know, is that THE BEST things you can do for your kindergartner, pandemic or not, are talking, listening, engaging, reading, and playing with your child daily. Focusing on raising a kind, confident, curious child will pay the largest rewards and will actually make the learning easier.
