Dear Hendricks Families,

It is hard to believe that summer is here, and that means our school year draws to a close. Hendricks Skills For Success will be in full swing for six weeks this summer from June 2 to July 10.

As I complete my first year I want to say thank you to the parents and community for your support of our staff and their efforts to increase the rigor in writing. Also, thank you to our wonderful PTO who have held some fantastic fundraising events this year. Lastly, I want to thank the amazing staff and students of Hendricks. The school culture exudes Respect, Responsibility and a positive Relationships.

If you need to contact the school over the summer, please call Mr. Wells at (520) 696-8405 or e-mail Peter Wells. Remember to read, write, and participate in math activities this summer in order to stay fresh.

Thank you for your continued support. As always, if you have questions or concerns, I welcome open communication.

Together We Soar,                      

Peter Wells
