    Another busy, but amazing week at Robert E. Hendrickson High School. I want to thank each of you for your continued support of all our programs and for providing our students with world-class opportunities. We fully know and understand that many of the amazing experiences our students have are because of your commitment and dedication to our school. Your long hours and hard work and on behalf of our all our programs do not go unnoticed. You all are amazing and the backbone of our continued success here at Hendrickson High School.

    The Robert E. Hendrickson High School Band received a performance time of 4:15 p.m. for this Friday, Nov. 3 at the Alamodome in San Antonio. There are 68 bands competing across two days of competition. This is also the night of the Hendrickson High School vs. Round Rock football game. The Hawk Nation Band fully supports the team, however, this is their biggest contest of the year and may arrive late to the game. Good luck, Hawk Band, at the Bands of America Super-Regional in San Antonio and safe travels as you all make your way back to be part of the football game.

    Senior Celebration Information:

    If you have a senior this year, we look forward to providing your student a fun, alcohol-free, drug-free event to celebrate the night of their graduation. We have a goal to raise $35,000 - $40,000 to make it a spectacular event and, as you can imagine, it takes a lot of volunteers and fundraising to make it happen.  

    As for the 2017-2018 board members, we have a vacancy in the vice president’s role. If you would be interested in serving, please send us an email at hendricksonseniorcelebration@gmail.com. We would love to have you help! 

    We would like to get some information from you so if you could please fill out this survey, we would greatly appreciate it! This will create our database for communication and committees. 

    We need help on several committees. Our biggest need right now is Breakfast with Santa / Holiday Shopping Extravaganza, which is happening at Hendrickson on Dec. 9 in the cafeteria and gym. This is our largest fundraiser and last year it raised about $12,000. The chairperson is Adrienne Sanchez and we would like to say “Thanks” to Adrienne for stepping up.

    We have T-shirts, signs and car decals on sale to support the seniors. The shirt is for parents and others to show support for their senior. The senior class did a shirt for the students.

    Attached is an order form and it can be taken to Mrs. Whitmire in room B110. We have sizes S, M, L, XL, 2X and 3X.

    S-XL are $15 and 2X-3X are $18, signs are $15 and car decals are $10. We do have a package deal for 1 shirt and 1 sign for $25 ($28 if the shirt is a 2X or 3X). 

    Monthly meetings occur the first Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. in the Hendrickson library. It is a great way to get information, get involved and have your voice heard. We try to limit the meetings to an hour because we know your time is valuable. If you help on a committee, there will be additional meetings outside of the monthly meeting.

    We do have several ways to keep up to date with what is happening with Senior Celebration.

  • PSAT Information

    Posted by Marcial Guajardo on 10/10/2017


    What a great Homecoming week at Robert E. Hendrickson High School! There was so much excitement and energy last week and I hope the Hawks used their time Monday to catch up on rest and homework. The HHS students never cease to amaze me with their passion for their school and being a part of the school community.

    On Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2017 we will be administering the PSAT, Texas Success Initiative and preparing for the STAAR exam. Attached is the schedule for the day and students need to check the rosters in the main hallway for their testing (PSAT) room assignment. Seniors scheduled to take the TSI need to check in with Mrs. Spradlin in the College and Career Center for their assignment.

    Because of the number of students being given the PSAT, we are asking students to bring their own calculator to use. It is not necessary to go out and purchase a calculator, but if you student has one, please have them bring it to school on Wednesday.  

    Please note that because of the timing of the test our lunches are scheduled later than normal. It is imperative that students eat breakfast or pack a snack that they can eat during one of the testing breaks.

    Thank you for all you do to support our students.

    As this week’s Homecoming activities begin I want to congratulate the Robert E. Hendrickson High School Student Council for its Hawk for Harvey Campaign. The students will collect money that will be sent to both Port Aransas and Rockport high schools as they return to school after Hurricane Harvey. If you are interested in helping these schools, please come by the main office and make a donation to the HHS STUCO. All funds that are collected will be sent to both high schools.

    There are several links (including one for Homecoming events, one for a FFA sale and one for the Michael Wozniak Golf Tournament), and please review the new bell schedule as there are some minor adjustments that affect the beginning and end of each lunch period.

    Hawks for Harvey Homecoming Campaign:

    This year Hawk Nation is leading a fundraising BLITZ to help Port Aransas and Rockport high schools, both devastated by Hurricane Harvey. 

    Hawk Student Council is asking for EVERY STUDENT in the school to bring a suggested monetary donation of $5 to their 2nd Period A Day Class. The donation can be more and it is understandable if it is less. Hawk Nation wants to help both these school recover what Hurricane Harvey took from them and make their HOMECOMING the best possible. 

    All of the Hawk fans will also be able to give to this awesome cause by making a donation at the Homecoming game!

    The event will be from Oct. 2-6.

    The school year is off to a fast start and the Hawks are off to their standard setting ways. The Class of 2018 is leading the way with an Apply Texas (standard Texas college and university application) completion rate of over 80%. This class has come to understand the importance of planning ahead and thinking about the their next educational step. 

    The Class of 2019 will be ordering their class rings from Herff Jones tomorrow and Wednesday (details below) and they continue to fall into their new leadership role with enthusiasm and excitement. 

    Our underclassmen have been amazing and are adjusting to the school year in great fashion. There are many leadership opportunities on campus and both the C/O 2020 and C/O 2021 are quick to jump into leadership roles and work hard when needed. 

    The HHS Library is very busy these days and I would like to take this opportunity to say “Thank You” to our new Librarian, Kara Johnson and Library Aide, Savannah Guerra. Mrs. Johnson and Mrs. Guerra have created a great environment in the library and our students are excited about visiting the library all day long. Thank you both for all your hard work in making the library an inviting place for our students.

    National Merit Scholar Recognition:

    The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®)— which serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.6 million entrants each year.

    Of the 1.6 million entrants, some 50,000 with the highest PSAT/NMSQT® Selection Index scores qualify for recognition in the National Merit® Scholarship Program. 

    In late September, more than two-thirds (about 34,000) of the approximately 50,000 high scorers on the PSAT/NMSQT® receive Letters of Commendation in recognition of their outstanding academic promise.

    Please help me to congratulate the Hendrickson High School National Merit Commended Scholars:

    • Sarah Flynn
    • Cory Gunter
    • Alex London
    • Bennett McCullough
    • Brinda Prasad
    • Grant Richardson
    • Daniel Schulze
    • Gabrielle Viduya

    Also, each year the National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) recognizes about 5,000 academically outstanding high school students from the more than 400,000 Hispanic and Latino juniors who take the PSAT/NMSQT®. The following Hendrickson High School Students earned recognition by the College Board as National Hispanic Recognition Scholars:

    • Christian Boswell

    Robert E. Hendrickson High School Band:

    The Hendrickson High School Wind Ensemble submitted recordings of "Mars" by Gustav Holst and "Dance Movements" by Philip Sparke last spring. The recordings were compared against recording from the best high school bands from around the United States. An elite panel of college band directors 'blindly' evaluated the recordings. Only nine bands were selected in the United States for the distinction of "Mark of Excellence" from 'The Foundation for Music Education'. The Hendrickson HS Wind Ensemble was one of those 9 bands that earned the "Mark of Distinction." This is a tremendous achievement for our students.

    Congratulations to our 2017 All-Region Jazz Band members:

    • Nick Arellano: 4th Chair Trumpet — taping for All-State
    • Duncan Crow: 2nd Chair Tenor Trombone — taping for All-State
