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!



Dear Hawk Families,

Life at Hendricks is humming right along. We had a busy month in October and November appears to be shaping up much the same. First, I would like to sincerely thank all of our parents and families who attended parent/teacher conferences. Teachers reported a high attendance rate which we sincerely appreciated. The children are always the winners when we stay in close contact between home and school. I’m so proud of our students adherence to the 3 R’s—Respect, Responsibility and Relationships.

The first quarter awards assembly recognized students in first through sixth grades for efforts to be academically successful. It is so fun to see the excitement and joy in the students’ faces as we honored them for his/her achievements and efforts. Thank you for making the effort and taking the time to join us at our awards assemblies. 

Please continue to encourage your children to learn to complete his/her homework, learn his/her math facts, and to read, read, read. Check out the many students who earned blue or gold honor rolls on our News page. It is so important for students to develop these strong academic skills and focus when they are young so that students can continue to apply these skills throughout his/her life.

As we look to Thanksgiving, we would like to wish each of our families a healthy and happy holiday. We are thankful for the support and participation of our Hendricks families. Hendricks is a special place because of our students, staff, and families.

As you may be aware, the federal government has reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary School Act (ESEA). The reauthorization mandates several actions in Title I schools with an increased effort to inform parents. If you would like to request information about the Elementary and Secondary School Act (ESEA), please contact me at 520-696-8401. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to give me a call. Working together will support our goal in having another successful school year for all who attend Hendricks Elementary School.

Respectfully,
