Principal's Message


Dear 4th and 5th Grade Students: 

This newsletter entry has been written just for you, my wonderful 4th and 5th grade students. November is a time to reflect and to be thankful for all that we have. Sometimes, boys and girls, we get so caught up in thinking about the things we do not have that we forget all the wonderful things we currently do have right in front of us.

I want each and every one of you to stop right now and think about all the wonderful things to be thankful for in your lives. I will share some of mine. My list is much longer but here are just a couple.

I am thankful for: 

  1. My family….My husband, Bryan, my sons Jake and Jared.
  2. My Health…..I feel good each and every day.
  3. The opportunity to be your Principal……I love being with you each day.
  4. The staff at Durban Avenue……Do you realize how awesome your teachers are?            
  5. All my friends who provide me with belly laughs each day.
  6. The beautiful color changing of the leaves which makes fall so special. They are a pleasure to look at each day.

Again, these are only a few….Boys and Girls, please be thankful for all that you have. Give your moms, dads, grandparents, your brothers and sisters a great big hug!

Happy fall, All!

Life is Good….Live it well. Happy Thanksgiving!

Love, Mrs. Hensz
