Principal’s Message

WELCOME TO ANTHONY P. MEHFOUD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN HENRICO, VIRGINIA
Thank you for taking your valuable time to visit the Mehfoud Elementary School website. We hope you find our website to be user-friendly and complete with the information which you are seeking.
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! We are looking forward to taking our students beyond our community this year. “Blast off to Infinite Possibilities” will bring a new meaning to our learning adventures! As we move together into this school year, the faculty and staff at Mehfoud Elementary School are happy to have you as part of the Mehfoud learning community. We look forward to the engaging learning opportunities that your child will experience both inside and outside of the classroom this year. Our school family remains committed to providing innovative instructional strategies to engage our students, promote problem-solving strategies, and foster independent creativity at Mehfoud. Our efforts tie beautifully into the Henrico Learner Profile. Our Pandas will be #LifeReady!
Mehfoud Elementary School was built in 1955 and originally named Henrico Central School. Until the summer of 1969, it was one of several African-American schools in Henrico County. In the fall of 1970, the school was reopened as an integrated school to house the first and second grades of the overcrowded Varina Elementary School. The school was renamed Varina Annex. In 1987, the school was renamed again and called Anthony P. Mehfoud Elementary School, after a member of the Henrico County Board of Supervisors and now houses Preschool – Second grade.
We strive to create an environment where each student is given the attention necessary to achieve his/her highest levels of individual success. All of this is made possible by strong partnerships developed with our students and their families over time.
Please check out our PTA website and look for the many places we could use your support this year as a volunteer. No job is too small, and volunteering is a great way to meet other Mehfoud families! Please consider committing your time this school year. Together we can make a difference!
We hope our website is useful to you. If you have questions, concerns, or suggestions on how to make our webpage more effective, please contact us.
Go PANDAS!
