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

Dear Hawk Families, 

Registration - Forms will be coming home with your child in April. Please fill these forms out and return to your child’s teacher as soon as possible. If you know your child will not be returning for the 2016-2017 school year, please fill in the bottom portion of the letter attached to the registration form. This helps us better prepare for next year’s registration and class lists.

Optimist Oratorical Contestants! - During March, Mrs. Montoya’s 6th graders all wrote speeches and presented to their class. The speech topic was “How my best brings out the best in others.” Two finalists were entered in the Tucson optimist club contest. Mason Rios and Armando Zuniga attended the meeting at Sullivan’s Steakhouse on March 16. Mason Rios won 1st prize and $250 in cash for his speech. Armando Zuniga placed 2nd and received a $150 check. Mason will move on to the Tucson district competition the week of April 14. Good luck, Mason!

Kindergarten Round Up – April 1 will be our kindergarten round-up from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. in the multipurpose room. If you know of a child who is five years old in your neighborhood, have them enroll at Hendricks.
 
Hue Run - The hue run was a grand success. We are so thankful to all the PTO members and parent volunteers! What a great time and super tradition for our school. Students received their shirts thanks to our sponsors Hedy, Pima Federal, Tucson Police Officer Associates, Bank of the West, Mark’s Ace Hardware, L & D International, Distinctive Cleaning and Maintenance, Inc., Bronco towing, 9 queens, Freddy’s Steakburgers, AZ Airtime Jump Center, Blueberry Bunny, Inc., Empire Graphics, and Danese at the Hilton Tucson East.
 
YMCA's All Kids Swim program gives free group swim lessons at five different facilities to increase pool safety within our community. The goal of all kids swim is to prevent drowning and promote water safety. They will be here at Hendricks on Monday, April 18 and Wednesday, April 20 at dismissal time to register students.

Teacher Requests - Please be aware that we will soon start the process of determining classroom placements for the 2016-2017 school year. When making class lists, the teachers make every effort to be sure to balance the classes. If you would like to submit a letter describing what type of educational experience will be best for your child we will make every effort to honor and respect your perspective. Our goal is to always do what is best for our students. Please submit these letters to the current classroom teacher and/or me by Friday, April 22, because we will begin to start creating class lists for next year in early May.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, I encourage your open communication with our school because together we create #TheBestPlaceEver for children!

Teamwork is the Essential Piece,
