Another sign that a new school year is upon us is the announcement that Henderson Junior High School is handing out athletic equipment to its student-athletes on Tuesday, Aug. 9.


A meeting for parents of 7th graders will be held at 5:30 p.m. in the cafeteria and 8th grade parents will meet at 7.

Equipment handout will be held from 6:30-7:30 p.m. for 7th grade and 7:30-8:30 p.m. for 8th grade. Boys will meet in the small gym and girls will meet in the large gym after the parent meeting.


(Times are approximate pending participation and meeting length; 8th grade equipment will not be handed out until all 7th graders have received their equipment).


Here are a few other details you need to know:


All paperwork is due by for all SISD students.
