Welcome to the home of the Hawks, here on the Internet site for J. Robert Hendricks Elementary school. Our highly performing campus of nearly 450 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!
Please take time to read our site in detail. This is a great way to keep informed and involved with our school. We'd love your partnership with us throughout your children's education. Our calendar and News page will keep you updated with our many activities. We also have your basic questions answered in the FAQ and you'll notice the Helpful Links page has some terrific links to enhance your child's education. Please contact us for anything you need. Our staff and teachers are glad you and your children are here with us this year!
Dear Hendricks Families,
It is hard to believe that another successful school year is drawing to a close. They seem to go by so quickly. As always, May is a very busy month with many extra events scheduled. Please refer to the newsletter for important dates and times. We are currently very busy preparing for next year. Please be sure to send in the registration forms for your child/children to the front office by May 10. Students will need to have registration forms and all other school materials, such as library books, turned in prior to our field days which will be on Tuesday and Wednesday the last week of school. Also, Mrs. Agraan would appreciate a heads-up from parents whose child/children won’t be attending Hendricks or FWJH next year. Please stop in to see her prior to the last day of school for the necessary withdrawal form(s) which you will need to take to the receiving school. Students’ last day of school will be Thursday, May 23. This is a half-day. We will have our awards assemblies at 8:30 a.m. for first through third grade students and 9:30 a.m. for our fourth through sixth grade students. I hope you will be able to join us for this special celebration.
In closing, I would like to take this opportunity to let the families of Hendricks Elementary know that it has been my honor and privilege to be the principal of this fine school these past seven years. Hendricks is a caring and special place for students, staff, and families alike. I know the incoming principal, Mr. Peter Wells, will be a wonderful addition to the community.
I hope you have a joyful and relaxing summer with your family.
