Clean Up Days and Picnic
(Fall and Spring Dates)
PTA volunteers help to spruce up the school grounds and engage in school beautification projects (in the past murals have been painted and new garden beds have been added).
A picnic follows the Fall event as a time to get together with friends and relax after our hard work.
Upcoming dates: Saturday, April 7th (Philly Spring Clean Up Day)
The C. W. Henry PTA will host our Spring Cleanup Day in conjunction with the city-wide cleanup day.
Projects will take place outside and will most likely include raking, sweeping, gardening, and more. We will also be creating a new garden bed that will serve as a habitat for birds and butterflies.
Family Fun Nights
(in lieu of December, February, and April PTA Meetings)
Thematic events are planned during which families play games with one another and also get to know some other C. W. Henry families a bit better.
Snacks and light refreshments are often served.
Past themes include Luau, Camp Read-a-lot, Winter Carnival, and Science Night
Scholastic Book Fair
Do you love to read? Do you love helping out books in the hands of our kids and help fundraiser for the PTA at the same time? Consider volunteering for a shift at the Fall book fair.
The Scholastic Book Fair is May 7th-11th in Rm 111.
The book fair will be open both during the regular school day and report card conferences.
Possible evening hours to be determined.
Martin Luther King Day of Service
In honor of Dr. King’s legacy of community service, make it a day of service instead of just “a day off.” Various projects take place within the school to benefit the school community and others. C. W. Henry volunteers are assisted by our greater community with volunteers coming from various local organizations such as Germantown Jewish Center and the Unitarian Society of Germantown.
Lower School Family Dance
Save the Date for the Lower School Dance: Friday, April 13th from 5:30-7:30pm.
Our K-5 Family Dance is one of the most popular CW Henry gatherings of the year! We have sold out of tickets each year as we raised money for projects to benefit our school, socialized with other parents in the community, and had a blast with all of our children! In order to make it run smoothly, we need lots of helping hands.
Earth Day Celebration and C.W. Henry Plant Sale
Saturday, April 21 from 11am – 3pm
in collaboration with Weavers Way Co-op
All proceeds from the plant sale benefit lessons in the school garden with Farmer David.
More details coming soon regarding the fun events planned for this day.
