Today was the last day of the 2012-2013 school year for the Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School Huskies! Students cleaned out their lockers, said goodbye to their teachers, took pictures with their friends, attended the end of year Awards Ceremony, and was bid farewell by their teachers at the bus loop!
Students were recognized for awards such as the Most Improved Students Award, Citizenship Awards, Perfect and Distinguished Attendance Awards, among others.
We hope all of our Huskies have a fun and safe summer. We can't wait to see you back here on Tuesday, September 3!

The national food service industry trade journals the Viewpoint and Food Management Magazine are featuring Mary Ellen Henderson's innovative "Husky Chef" student culinary arts competition. Modeled after the popular TV show "Iron Chef" the students in 7th grade Family and Consumer Science (FACS) had the challenge of creating a dish that fit within the USDA school lunch guidelines.
The program, under the direction of FACS teacher Jeff Buck, Food Services Director Richard Kane and Operations Manager Niki Wisemiller has also won a CYE Creative Excellence Award from the Virginia Department of Education. Presentation of that award is tomorrow in Richmond.
The occasional torrential down pour of rain didn't slow down the Mary Ellen Henderson Huskies on Monday! Instead, students relished in the opportunity to play in the mud and not get into trouble at the 2013 MEH Field Day!
With a dozen different stations to visit, students traveled around and participated in activities such as the Obstacle Course, Slip-N-Slide, Sno-Cones, Capture the Flag, Water Fights, Knock-Out, and the always popular Dunk Tank, among others.
Mary Ellen Henderson seventh grade students visited Junior Achievement Finance Park in Fairfax on Monday, to learn about real-world finance and economics. This one-of-a-kind community partnership was funded by a generous grant from the Falls Church Education Foundation.
Students were assigned a family profile and income level. They had to balance their personal budgets, taking into consideration expenses like housing, transportation, food, clothing, insurance, philanthropic donations and savings.
