Dear Matthew A. Henson School community:
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! My name is G. Travis Miller and I am the proud principal of Matthew A. Henson Elementary School. This is an exciting time for all of us as we will continue to build Matthew Henson into a school of high academic achievement. After a lot of hard work and dedication to our students, we are ready to welcome them and their families through our doors. We hope that you have had a restful, peaceful and enjoyable summer with your family and friends. Now, it is time for us to continue to change our students’ lives through high-quality instruction and purposeful enrichment activities.
This school year, we will continue our commitment to providing support with the Instructional Framework, Student Learning Objectives, Teacher Evaluation and all other systemic initiatives to ensure the best results for our students. There will be a continued focus on using data to make instructional decisions to support the academic needs of our students. Our students deserve the very best and through increase volunteerism and educational outings that connect the teaching and learning, our students will have the opportunity to display all that they know.
We anticipate a wonderful school year where our students and staff will be learning and growing together. Thank you in advance for your support and we look forward to you returning with your wonderful ideas and suggestions for making the 2016-2017 school year productive for our students.
G. Travis Miller, Principal
