Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year at Hendrix Elementary International Baccalaureate World School!

It has been a tremendous privilege to serve as Principal at Hendrix for the past nine years. I hold a deep affection for this remarkable community and cherish the relationships established with our dedicated staff, parents, and students. Hendrix holds a unique place in my heart, and I am profoundly gratified to have the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of our students and educators.

Our unwavering commitment to academic excellence remains at the forefront as we endeavor to ensure that every child reaches their full potential through a wide array of enriching and challenging educational experiences. Our primary objective is to cultivate a dynamic learning environment that dedicates itself to engaging each student comprehensively, every day, within our classrooms. Through collaborative efforts between our students, staff, and families, we aim to establish a setting where children are intellectually stimulated, taking into account their distinctive strengths, requirements, and backgrounds.

Hendrix Elementary stands as the sole elementary school in District Two to offer the International Baccalaureate Program, Creative Movement, and Spanish education. This distinctive combination of dance, art, music and language addresses the fundamental need in our students to express their unique talents. In the past year, we achieved recognition as an ABC school (Arts in Basic Curriculum), furthering our commitment to augment academic learning through the integration of arts into our curriculum. The Arts in Basic Curriculum takes the lead in ensuring comprehensive arts education, encompassing dance, music, media arts, theatre, visual arts, and creative writing, for all our students.

We hold in high regard the vital role that parents and families play in the educational journey and earnestly seek your interest and support throughout the academic year. Parents, you are your child's foremost and most influential educators. Your understanding of your child surpasses that of anyone else, and we extend an invitation to you to collaborate closely with your child's classroom teacher. Your insights into your child's distinct needs, talents, and interests are invaluable. Please do not hesitate to share any information you believe will contribute to your child's success. Together, we can impart lifelong values to our students, encouraging them to strive diligently, surpass expectations, and appreciate the value of education. Effective communication between home and school is pivotal to the success of our educational mission.

Should you have any inquiries or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to the school. We eagerly anticipate partnering with you and your child throughout their elementary school years.

With great anticipation,
Tina Humphries, Principal
