Hi, I am Ms. Hennrikus and I will be your child's Religion, Language Arts, and Literature teacher this year. I want to take this time to let you know a little bit about myself and how my classroom will be run. This year will be a year of change both academically and personally and I am excited to guide your children spiritually, intellectually, and socially on this 7th and 8th grade journey.
As a teacher, I consider myself to be creative, energetic, and nurturing. I believe in the uniqueness and dignity of your child and I will dedicate my professional experience and faith as a Catholic to help your child reach the fullness of their potential.
My classroom will be high-energy and thought provoking. Students will develop their critical thinking skills, which include: applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and "thinking outside the box." In my classroom, I will promote a safe environment that encourages creativity and risk taking. Your child will have a tremendous amount of fun this year!

St. Patrick's Mission:
St. Patrick's School provides a quality Catholic elementary education for all students entrusted to our care, developing every aspect of the child: mind, body, and spirit.
We support parents as primary educators of their children. We are called to spread the Gospel message of love, unity and reconciliation. Essential to our mission is building a relationship with Jesus and one another.
St. Patrick's School is a vital part of our parish community and is enriched by the presence and ministry of the Augustinian Order. Their values of truth, community, and love guide us in the fulfillment of our mission.
