Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2015-16 school year! This year will be another stellar year as we continue to reach for the GOLD! Our Renaissance National Honor Roll Award was one of the highlights of our year and showed the commitment of teachers, parents and students to put a priority on teaching our students to Read by 9. Students read over 16,000 books and took quizzes at least 2 times per week, parents helped to monitor student progress through Renaissance Home Connect found on our Henry website. Our students read over 72 million words and 82% of our students read above 85%. This is why we continue to increase student achievement in Reading! This year we also received $3,000 Raising Readers Grant provided to us by the Rialto Masons. This program is designed to encourage parents to read with their students every day. Kindergarten students will receive a red book bag full of books to take home weekly. Research shows that students who read with their parents greatly improve their reading skills. We will meet with Kindergarten parents at the beginning of the year to provide more information regarding this program. We also won silver medal at the 2015 Spring Cal State Fullerton Music Festival. We won medals for STRINGS, BAND and CHOIR!! Our students were incredible and after the festival enjoyed a day at KNOTTS BERRY FARM!! Congratulations to Mrs. Hollis and Mrs. Hawkins and all of our staff for their hard work. As the only VAPA magnet school in Rialto, all students are provided an arts integration program that includes Keyboarding, Minds Institute ( JIJI) ART, Band, Drum line, Recorders, Drama and Dance. In order for our students to excel in these areas, we need your support in insuring that ALL students practice daily. This is not optional, it is mandatory and students will receive grades in music and art. A Practice Activity Log is required for all 4th and 5th grade students. We must adhere to this policy as a VAPA MAGNET SCHOOL. ONCE AGAIN, All 1st grade students will receive free backpacks full of school supplies. This program is sponsored by McDonalds and made possible by our own Cynthia Vassar, instructional assistant in our MH program. Mrs. Vassar continues to provide outstanding support for our students. She is a shining example of excellence. It is people like her who support our kids and their families. THANK YOU MRS. VASSAR!!! As we continue to REACH FOR THE GOLD, we encourage you to join us in supporting our outstanding programs. We need your financial and moral support to provide our students with motivation and excitement! PARENT INVOLVEMENT IS THE KEY TO OUR SUCCESS! We want our kid to love coming to school!! All students will have an opportunity to participate in ARTS to GO, and parents will be asked to help pay $20 for the PURPLE EASEL field trip where students paint in an actual art studio! Please feel free to help another child who may not be able to pay. You are invited to participate in our weekly Friday morning assembly and join us in learning the latest dance moves. Please join us at our monthly Coffee with the Principal and SSC/ELAC meetings. I am looking forward to another outstanding year! Thank you for your support for HENRY VAPA School, where the ARTS INSPIRE EXCELLENCE!! Mariyon Thompson Proud Principal Henry Visual and Performing Arts Magnet School
