Welcome to the Proud Home of the Hawks

Welcome to the home of the Hawks, here on the Internet site for J. Robert Hendricks Elementary school. Our highly performing campus of nearly 500 students is located in the strong community of Tucson. You'll find us in the central, southern part of Arizona, which offers bright and sunny skies and warm weather all year long.

Hendricks Elementary serves kindergarten to 6th grade. We take great pride and care in teaching your children every day. Our teachers and staff know that encouragement and challenging work build great minds and character. We are proud to be recognized by the Arizona Educational Foundation as a recipient of the A+ School of Excellence Award 2015. 


Reading Literacy
We encourage our students to practice reading at home. Please watch our reading literacy training video for tips on how to read with your student. Enjoy this special time with your student; reading is fun!

A Message from Our Principal

Hawk Families,

I want to wish each of our families a Happy New Year! This time of year is a good time to set goals and re-focus on reaching new heights, whether it is for losing weight, completing a book, or for students to set goals to improve math, reading, and/or writing skills.

Report Cards - Watch for your child's report card to come home the week of January 11.

Awards Assembly - The second quarter awards assemblies will be on Friday, January 15 at 8:30 a.m. for grades 1-3 and 9:30 a.m. for grades 4-6. Please remember to not park in the dirt along Orange Grove Road. Find a space inside the parking lot or directly in front of the school.

PTO - A huge thank you to our PTO, parents, and teachers for the wonderful Hendricks Holiday in December.

Attention Hawks Families - PTO will be coordinating a Color a Thon run on March 18. We are currently looking for businesses that would be willing to sponsor the run. We are hoping to print t-shirts for every student, and the sponsor names will go on the shirt. If you or someone you know would like to help please contact us via e-mail.

Shows - First graders put on a fabulous show right before break. This performance was adorable! We are looking forward to our second grade performance on Monday, February 22 and the fourth grade recorder concert on Thursday, April 14.

Spelling Bee - Congratulations to our spelling bee winners Lena Stoltzfus, Luis Moya, Adam Lopez, and Christina Longoria (alternate) from fifth grade and Caiden Craft, Kaylin Kidd, Cindy Nguyen, and Avery Hargrove from sixth grade. These students will represent Hendricks at Flowing Wells Jr. High for the district spelling bee on Friday, January 15. Good luck spellers.

Thank You Sixth Graders - Our sixth graders celebrated their hard work at Fiesta Lanes on December 17, bowling two games each. The top bowlers and winners of $10 for each classroom were Dominick Manuel and Michael Denman. #GreatTimes

AzMERIT Results – They have released the AzMERIT scores, and we are pleased that Hendricks students out performed students around the State of Arizona by twenty percentage points in English language arts and eleven percentage points in mathematics. Testing this year is the last week of March 2016.

Please take a few moments to read my January message in full on the first page of our January 2016 newsletter.

Hawks are A+ Strong,
