Jason Mraz, center, visited Hendricks Avenue Elementary School on Aug. 17 to participate in the first flag raising ceremony for the new school year.

The Hendricks Avenue Elementary School PTA held its annual cookie party for new kindergarten students at orientation Aug. 10. HAE’s mascot, Henry the Eagle, made a surprise appearance and enjoyed posing for photos with the new HAE students.   

School began Aug. 13 with a total enrollment of about 660, grades kindergarten to fifth, and a staff of 60.

  On Aug. 17, the school flag raising ceremony included special guest Jason Mraz, who sang two songs, “I’m Yours,” and “Have It All,” which includes a positive message for children and adults. Mraz was in town for a concert at Daily’s Place this evening and, after sharing his songs during the flag raising, visited the classrooms.
