Dear students

Hi! My name is Mrs. Henke, and I will be your Technology Education and Engineering, and 7th grade US History teacher this year at North Star School. I am so excited that you will be in my class this year! I can’t wait to meet you and start our year together. I know you are going to love Tech Ed and History.

Born and raised in the Cando area, graduating from Cando High School and receiving a BS in Elementary Education. We returned to the Cando area after a 10 year hiatus to raise our family. I enjoy watching the activities my children (Matt, Dani, Michael, Mark, Derek and Dane) were involved with, from academic, school sports, music,  and of course Hockey. Received a second BS in Technology Education and began teaching in Bisbee and Cando, through the reorganization for the past 16 years. So now I have over 60 kids per year, with many coming back to see me after the finished school.

I enjoy spending time with my children and grandchildren, camping, reading, sewing and taking care of our strays that now have found their new home with us.

Our classroom is a very busy place to learn and is structured by a variety of hands-on learning activities.


Communication is essential and you can also visit our class website for weekly updates, pictures, helpful resources and see everything that we are doing.

Please feel free to contact me at school at 701-968-4416, or by email at I welcome your thoughts and am looking forward to working together to make first grade a successful year!


7th Grade US History students will need a 3 ring binder to hold their work in an orderly fashion for easy accessibility to your paperwork.

I look forward to seeing you August 23! Remember, Back to School Night at North Star is August 21 at 5:00 p.m. See you there!

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Your teacher,

Mrs Henke
North Star School
