Principal's Message

  • Principal Antoine London This message is from Principal Antoine London. I wanted to take a moment to reach out to you and introduce myself. Welcome to the 6th grade Warriors!

    The transition into sixth grade is such a special time in your life. We are excited to welcome you to Henderson Middle School.You are going to be part of a Legacy of Excellence that has existed in the city of Richmond for more than 40 years. As a Henderson Warrior our expectation is Excellence and we will be here to guide, support and nurture you for the next three years as you grow into Excellent Warrior Leaders. Your 6th grade class will have the unique experience of being the first cohort of students in Richmond City Schools to be part of the STEM Academy here at Henderson. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) 

    You are about to embark on a very special experience this school year. I know that the past few months have been extremely challenging as our community has navigated so many incredible world events. At Henderson our motto is “Warriors Today, Leaders Tomorrow!” We believe that all Warrior students, families, and staff members are made of something special, and we pride ourselves on being able to overcome challenges and demonstrate excellence every day! 

     As a native Richmonder and a former Henderson Warrior myself, I can assure you  that Henderson Middle School is a great place to learn. I grew up in the Battery Park area of the Northside and attended A.V.Norrell for Elementary School.  At Henderson I had the opportunity to grow academically and to learn skills that have had an incredible impact on my life. 

     My love for our community and for education is what drives me. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you very soon (virtually for our first semester). I am excited about you being a part of our Warrior Family, and can’t wait to have an opportunity to meet you!

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - September 24, 2020 (PM)

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I'd like to begin this evening by acknowledging the pain coursing through our community yet again in the wake of the decision yesterday by a Kentucky grand jury not to charge any of the officers involved in the death of Breonna Taylor with homicide or manslaughter. Outcomes like this only tear at the unhealed wounds borne by so many within the RPS family. Please check on your colleagues, friends, and loved ones this evening. Please recognize that they may need extra time and space to process this latest injustice. And please be there for them, in whatever capacity they need. Thank you. I also want to take a moment tonight to express my profound gratitude to Karla Ramos (Manager, Office of Multicultural Affairs for the City of Richmond), Fernando Rodriguez (Communications Director, Richmond & Henrico Health Districts), Jannette Duhart (RPS Bilingual and EL Coordinator), and Yahusef Medina (RPS Bilingual Family Liaison) for a candid, insightful, and educational discussion on RPS Live! yesterday about the Hispanic/Latin-American/Latino/a/x community in Richmond and RPS. A big thank you as well to Carlos Hernandez, our interpreter for the evening. If you missed this episode, I strongly encourage you to check it out here. With great appreciation, Jason

  • RPS Direct Update - September 24, 2020

    Dear #RPS Strong Family, I'm reaching out with this special RPS Direct to share that an RPS employee has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual is a staff member at Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School and was last at the school on 9-3. At the direction of the Richmond City Health Department (RCHD), we encourage anyone who was present at Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School on the date listed above to monitor their symptoms and reach out to their primary care provider if they have any concerns. Individuals can also contact RCHD’s COVID-19 hotline at (804) 205-3501. Our number one priority remains the health and safety of our students, staff, and families. We will continue to work in close collaboration with the Richmond City Health District to ensure the well-being of the entire RPS community. If you have any questions, as always, please don't hesitate to contact me. Best, Jason
