Our Mission StatementAt Henry Middle School We Think Critically, Respond Globally, Participate Locally, and Learn for Life
Welcome to Henry World Legacy Middle School
Our dedicated and experienced teaching staff at Henry World is by far one of the school’s greatest strengths. Our teachers make it a priority to build strong relationships with students to keep them motivated, which is especially critical at the middle school level. Our faculty is committed to developing the whole child by teaching both academics and character development hand in hand with the intention of preparing students for success not only in school, but also in life.
ATTENDANCE AND TARDIES
Report all absences on our 24-hr Attendance Line: (720) 423-9651
It is important to get your child to school on time! School starts at 8:00 am and ends at 3:00 pm every day. When your child is absent or late, please send a written note with your child to give to the attendance office. It is also just as important for your child to be present the entire day. If at all possible, please make appointments for your child outside of school hours to eliminate class disruption.
Our staff is making a concentrated effort to improve overall attendance. Teachers, Office Staff and Administrators will be working with students to encourage 100% attendance. Rewards will be given to those students who are present 95% or above. Please get your child to school! It really matters!
Thank you for understanding how important it is to be at school every day and on time!
