I am excited to announce the launch of "The Breakfast Club" at Matthew Henson School, starting from Tuesday, December 5th. The club will be held during the 2nd and 3rd quarters, from Tuesday to Thursday, in the mornings before school, running from 6:30 am to 8:10 am. Please note that the club will only take place on school days, and if there is a school closure, the session will be canceled.
Here are some important details about the club:
2nd Quarter Dates: December 5th – January 18th
3rd Quarter Dates: January 23rd – March 22nd
Days: Tuesday’s – Wednesday’s – Thursday’s
Time: 6:30 am - 8:10 am
Location: Students will enter through the gym's exterior doors rather than the main entrance.
Club Facilitators: "The Breakfast Club" will be led by dedicated teachers who are committed to providing a positive and enriching experience. The teachers for the club will be Mr. Santiago, Mr. Revell, and Officer Quigley.
Activities: "The Breakfast Club" is open to students of all athletic abilities and experience levels with basketball. Participants can engage in basketball skill drills, conditioning drills, and small-sided pick-up games. The goal of the club is to build student athletes and develop basketball skills.
Attendance Requirements: To attend, students must have 3 Husky-Points each day attended (ex. If you attend all three days you will need 9 points total.). Please check your Husky-Points balance before attending to ensure you have sufficient points. Please note that only the first 50 students who meet the Husky-Points requirement will be able to sign up for the club.
If students failed any academic class (MATH, ELA, SCIENCE or SOCIAL STUIDES) for the 1st quarter they are not eligible to participate in the 2nd quarter as they are invited to participate in grade recovery efforts. If a student fails one of these academic courses in the 2nd quarter, they will not be eligible to participate in the 3rd quarter.
Students may arrive anytime between 6:30 am - 7:30 am.
Once students enter the gym, they are expected to stay until the school day begins.
Athletic clothing and shoes are strongly encouraged. Students can change into school clothes in the locker rooms at the end of the open gym session.
Any form of horseplay, profanity, poor sportsmanship, etc., will not be tolerated and may result in permanent removal from the club.
Administration reserves the right to remove a student from the club based on behavior or if they believe the club is becoming a distraction from academics.
This is a recreational club and is not affiliated with Matthew Henson's Basketball team.
The club is open exclusively to Henson students.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out. We look forward to an exciting and positive experience at "The Breakfast Club."
Does your student like to think outside the box? Are they a creative problem solver? Do they thrive when working with a team? If so, Destination Imagination is the club for them. Our first Destination Imagination info session will occur after school on Thursday, November 2nd.
We will meet in Ms. Dennehy's room (PC-10) from 3-4pm. Any 6th, 7th, or 8th grade student may get a permission slip to attend the meeting from Srta. Dennehy or from the front office. Parents and guardians are encouraged to attend as well. Please contact Srta. Dennehy with any questions.
