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

Welcome Back Hawk Families,
 
We begin the 2015-16 school year as an “A+ school of excellence!” Our staff and students work hard each day to excel academically.

Our staff celebrates Mrs. Jessica Howell as our teacher of the year. Mrs. Howell is an innovative teacher and a leader on our staff. She is a candidate for state teacher of the year in Phoenix this fall.  

School begins on Thursday, August 6 at 7:55 a.m. Doors open at 7:30 a.m. with breakfast. Students will report to the playground to line up with classes not to the classroom. School dismissal is at 2:00 p.m.  

Remember not to park your car along Orange Grove road in the dirt. These are posted no parking signs.

Look what’s happening in August:

  • August 1 - 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. - Backpack event and free school supplies at Flowing Wells Junior High.
  • August 5 - 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. - Open house - Stop by and see your child’s classroom.
  • August 6 - 7:55 a.m. - First day of school.
  • August 13 - 5:00 p.m. - 5:45 p.m. - Kindergarten parent curriculum night           
  • August 13 - 6:00 p.m. - 6:45 p.m. - 1st - 3rd grade parent curriculum night.
  • August 13 - 7:00 p.m. - 7:45 p.m. - 4th - 6th grade parent curriculum night.
  • August 18 - 2:30 p.m. - PTO meeting in the volunteer room.

Don’t forget to sign up 1st - 6th graders for our afterschool skills for success program. All students participating will need to fill out the registration packet and return it to Mrs. Tammy Butler at school. Skills begins the third week of school. Watch for the sign up packet in your child’s backpack.

We are looking forward to another great year at Hendricks where we stand by the three r’s - respect, responsibility, and relationships. If there is ever anything I can do for you, contact me at 696-8401 or via e-mail
 

Hawks are A+ Strong,
