Around Benicia

Benicia is truly a diamond in the rough. Our city, our community, is filled with tremendous opportunities to explore, learn, and have fun. We hope you take some time to explore our great city. Visit the historic arsenal area. Walk through the former state capital building on First Street. Check out the depot or stop by the artists' studios. Become involved with music. Get involved with a recreational sports league or community activity. Be sure to visit our fabulous city library. Choose an exotic restaurant to patronize (or visit them all!). Subscribe to the Benicia Herald, read your Benicia Magazine, and surf the web at Benicia Patch. Certainly, come to the farmer's market on Thursday evenings. We are a California Main Street City. Benicia is filled with wonder and you are invited to partake in as little or as much as you would like. We encourage you to explore and support Benicia. We are so fortunate.


Please come and check the Lost and Found Bin, located in the JH Library, if your child is missing any items. All items will be donated to charity on the last day of every month. We always appreciate when your child's belongings are clearly labeled on the inside so that we can easily return a misplaced item.

Henderson Hound News


Moby Max

How can I help my child retain all the excellent information they have worked so hard to obtain this school year when they are busy playing outside, traveling, and exploring this summer? We have an answer. Moby Max.

You're child's teacher should have established an account for your child that will provide them access to the incredible, academic bolstering, online website Moby Max. It will be available all summer long, so you can help your child stay on top of his/her academics.

This is just one more way we try to help keep our Hounds excelling all year long!

Something Extra from Raley's

eScript Program


freecycle [frē-sīkəl] noun 
network where people can 
freely give items to others.

Many Henderson families have unused items that our teachers could use in their classrooms. Please check our GoogleDoc and consider giving your unused items new life. Parents and teachers, connect here.


In an effort to raise additional funds for PE equipment, we are collecting aluminum cans and plastic bottles to recycle. Instead of tossing these money-makers into your recycling bin, set them aside and bring them to school on Wednesday mornings. We will have bins set up beneath the flagpole in the front of school for families to deposit their donated recyclables. Glass is not being accepted at this time. With hundreds of families recycling at Henderson, we can make a big difference. Alisa Keffer - Coordinator


The Joe Henderson Parent Teacher Group (PTG) provides two opportunities each week for our students to purchase delicious, cool, treats at the end of the school day. It is a fun and tasty way for the PTG to help support our students learning. Students may purchase their treats in front of school for immediate enjoyment. Remember to properly dispose of your trash. Thanks, and enjoy!
