Camp Discovery
2015-16 Kindergarteners

Welcome new Husky Pups! Please join us for an introduction to Kindergarten by attending Camp Discovery.

Students will come to our school for two weeks, four days each week, and for only 3 hours - 9:00AM - 12:00 noon each day.

The dates are Monday, July 13 - Thursday, July 16 and Monday, July 20 - Thursday, July 23, for a total of eight great days of camp!

Each day will be filled with STEAM activities - that means, Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math, plus socializing and playing with other children who will be new to our Hendricks kindergarten classes this August.  Classes will be taught by our Kindergarten teachers.

This is an awesome opportunity for your child to become comfortable with starting school. Please join in the fun!

Camp Discovery is for registered Kindergarten students zoned for Hendricks Elementary and requires a commitment of attendance for the full eight days of exploration and discovery.    Please drop by our school Mondays - Thursdays to register your kindergartener.


Summer Reading Challenge 2015
One Million Minutes


Hendricks Elementary is excited to be participating in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge.  Each Hendricks student has been assigned a user name and password to use at the Scholastic Summer Reading website. During the summer, we hope that our students will login to the Scholastic site and enter the number of minutes spent reading each day.

We are encouraging all Hendricks Huskies to read 30 minutes a day, every day, all summer.
log your summer reading minutes!
Here's the challenge - We would like to see our schoolwide total reach One Million Minutes by Aug. 3, 2015; the first day of school next year.  If every Husky reads for 30 minutes each day, we will hit our goal!

Just a little reading EVERY DAY, Huskies!

If you need any help with logging-in or logging minutes, please contact Cynthia Coker, our school media specialist.

Our local Public Libraries in Powder Springs or the Thread Mill Mall (Sweetwater Branch Library) will be happy to checkout books to you! Please make a visit to our local libraries!
