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 at 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 an A+ School!


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,

Happy New Year! This time of year is a good time to set goals and re-focus on reaching new heights, whether it be losing weight, completing a book, or improving academic skills. Watch for your child's report card to come home January 8. Be sure to go over grades with your student and help him/her set goals for the 3rd quarter.

  • The 2nd quarter awards assemblies will be on Wednesday, January 14 at 8:30 a.m. for grades 1-3 and 9:30 a.m. for grades 4-6.
  • Congratulations to our spelling bee winners Maddison Todd, Stacy Reilly, Manny Quintero, and Cindy Nguyen (alternate) from 5th grade and Yalissa Bischoff, Dariel Saenz, and Melody Staller from 6th grade. These students will represent Hendricks the district spelling Bee on Friday, January 16.
  • We are looking forward to our 2nd grade performance on Monday, February 23 and the 4th grade recorder concert on Thursday, March 26.

Respectfully,
