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 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

Dear Hawk Families,

We have a lot of exciting events coming up.  Hope to see you there!

  • 3rd Quarter Awards – Please join us on March 12 at 8:30 a.m. for our first-third grade awards ceremony and at 9:30 a.m. for fourth-sixth grade. We will be celebrating our students meeting the goals they set in January. Remember, the PTO sells happy grams for parents before and after the assemblies.
     
  • Kindergarten Round Up – Registration for our incoming kindergartners will take place on Friday, March 13 from 8-10 a.m. in the multi-purpose room. Please plan to attend if you have a new child joining us for kindergarten next year. Help us spread the word to your friends and neighbors with kindergarten-age children as well. It is very helpful for us to know how many students will be joining us in August.
     
  • Recorder Concert – Our fourth grade students have been working hard practicing for the recorder concert. We hope you will join us on Thursday, March 26 at 6 p.m. to hear them perform.

Read Principal Wells's full letter in our March newsletter, found on our News & Events page.

Respectfully,
