5/27 Last Day of School

Whew!  We made it!  What a unique school year!  Great job Wildcats...you did it! Enjoy your summer!

Welcome Dr. Henry!

We are so excited to have Dr. Henry lead our Wildcats as our new Principal!  Here is some info she shared:


Dear Velasquez Families and Staff,
My name is Dr. Sherri L. Henry and I am excited to be the new principal of Velasquez Elementary. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with incredible students, dedicated staff, and a supportive school community. Since 2006, I have worked as an elementary teacher, intermediate reading instructional coach, and elementary assistant principal. I am eager to use each of these experiences to continue the awesome work that is taking place at Velasquez.
On a personal note, my husband and I have lived in the Richmond area for over 14 years. My two oldest children are proud graduates of Foster High School and my youngest daughter will graduate from Foster this June. We love Lamar CISD and are pleased to be a part of a district that ensures that all students have access to a superior education.
Building relationships is important to me. I look forward to establishing a positive rapport with the students, staff, and families of Velasquez. More importantly, my goal is to ensure that every student is safe and given the opportunity to learn at the highest standard. As we deal with the impact of the pandemic and recent events, our students need social-emotional support as they strive daily to meet the academic expectations of our curriculum. I am delighted to know that I am joining a school community that is already equipped with great systems and structures for this important work. It is my goal to unite my experiences and my openness to learn and continue the great work at Velasquez.
Again, I am excited and grateful to serve this wonderful community. I look forward to meeting you soon!
Sincerely,
Dr. Sherri L. Henry
Principal
Velasquez Elementary
