MLK Day of Service

On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, CIS-Henry partnered with Family Support Circle to restore the school sign at Patrick Henry Academy. We had a great group of volunteers who worked together to restore the sign, paint it, add new lettering, build a flower bed around it, and clean up the school grounds. Thank you to all who volunteered.

Life 101

Life 101 is an annual event for eighth grade students, where they simulate real-life experiences that they will face as an adult. The Graduation Coaches do a great job organizing this event each year, and CIS-Henry enjoys participating by helping students learn the skills necessary to be financially stable.
