    As we get closer to the end of the school year, we are beginning to get more questions about finals and our exemption policy. There has been a clarification of the sign and go practice that we had used before and it did not meet the requirements for counting students present in class. To correct this discrepancy, we have developed a finals schedule that continues to honor the academic focus of our students. The change is that students will not be able to sign and go, but must remain in class even if they are exempt. Again, the change is due to the clarification of state attendance rules.

    As always, please contact us if we may be of service and we appreciate all your support of our students and programs.

    Hawk Journalism:

    It was a busy and successful weekend for Hawk Journalism, starting on Friday when junior Megan Fletcher competed in UIL State Headline Writing and won 4th place in 6A.

    We attended the Spring Interscholastic League Press Conference Workshop, where we found out the results of the Individual Achievement Awards for work on last year’s yearbook and the newspaper from last March to this February. In addition to the awards listed below, newspaper students also won three Tops in Texas. Tops in Texas awards are especially meaningful as they mean that not only has the student won first place in their division, for us 6A, but have been selected as top from all divisions middle school to 6A.

    We wrapped up the week and successfully made it through the STAAR ELA I and ELA II exams. I was proud and impressed with the hard work of our students and staff. I am grateful for the team spirit displayed by all, as we worked to ensure the success of our students.

    I will send out the finals testing schedule and exemption forms early next week, as a reminder to students about the importance and benefits of being in attendance. I have received a few questions about what counts against exemptions, so I will include that information as well.

    Attached you will also find information on the Senior Panoramic picture, which we are taking on Thursday, April 19 at 10 a.m. 

    As always, thank you for your support of our students and campus!

    Senior Celebration On Saturday, April 21, Hendrickson Class of 2018 Senior Celebration will host a Princess/Superhero Party. This is to give young children an opportunity to have fun and meet and greet both. There will be plenty of games, activities, a photo booth, sweet treats and more. It will be an afternoon of fun! 

    We currently have Scentsy, LulaRoe, and LipSense lined up to sell during the event, and this is a fundraiser for HHS Senior Celebration as well! Come shop while you wait for your kids to finish their fun!

    Details about the event: Saturday, April 21, from 1-3 p.m. in the Hendrickson High School cafeteria. Kids are encouraged to wear their favorite Princess or Superhero outfit as well.  

    We will have a few costumes available for children to use.

    Price is $20 for the first child in the family and $15 for each additional child in that same family. You can register for the event here: https://squareup.com

    You will be able to register at the door but purchasing in advance helps us plan for our needs better. Parents, this is not a drop off event. We ask that you stay in the cafeteria while the event is going on.

    STARR Testing season is upon us and the ELA I exam will be administered on Tuesday April 10, and ELA II exam on Thursday, April 12. I have attached the schedule that we will use both days, as the schedule will differ in order to facilitate the time requirements of the test. Students that are testing will have a lunch break in their testing room, so please plan accordingly, as students will not have access to a microwave on these two dates. 

    Below are some of the many successes that our Hawks recently achieved. I continue to be amazed at the many achievements of so many of our State Policy Debate Champions programs and understand that it is all due to the hard work of our students and coaches. We appreciate your continued support of our programs and realize that your support is paramount to our continued success! Go Hawks!

We will need lots of help at the event night and encourage you to get involved. There will be many shifts and if you can come for as little as an hour that night, it would be a huge help. It is awesome to see the kids have such a great time and we really will need a lot of volunteers to ensure that it is an awesome event as well as everyone staying safe. Stay tuned for the sign up for event night volunteering.

    Registration for the students for the event will start in mid-April. Stay tuned for further details.

    In the interest of campus safety, we will be conducting a lockdown drill on Thursday morning at approximately 9:35 a.m. Normally we would not announce drills to students and parents so the drill is more authentic, however I felt it important to notify our community in advance so as not to cause any fear or panic. 

    During a drill, school administrators will be walking the halls to check rooms and doors. In the event of a true Lockdown, this will be done by law enforcement or an administrator designee. Prior to this drill tomorrow, staff will spend time in discussion with our student about situations and variables that may arise during a true emergency, and how students should respond.

    Thank you for helping keep Hendrickson as safe as possible and taking this drill and any future drills seriously. I encourage you to have conversations with your child regarding safety at school. If your child is having trouble processing these current events, we encourage you to reach out to their counselor and set up a meeting. The front page of the Hendrickson website has contact information for each counselor and assistant principal.

    It been a busy Spring semester and its only February! Below you will find some of the many successes of our students, as they continue to perform at the highest levels and represent their community and school. There is so much to celebrate, but ask that you pay special attention to the junior meeting flyer which provides information about the upcoming recruitment for our 2nd Fire Academy Cadet class.  If you are a Junior parent and have specific questions about the Fire Academy, contact james.baker@pfisd.net .

    As always thank you for your support of our students, the following is a testament as to how your support directly affects the success of our students.  Thank You!

    Este ha sido ciertamente un año inusual con el clima. Debido al retraso en los inicios que ocurrieron a principios de este año escolar, combinado con el cierre de escuelas un día de esta semana, estamos utilizando el lunes, 19 de febrero, como nuestro día de recuperación por el mal tiempo, según lo publicado en el calendario escolar de PfISD 2017-18 PfISD calendar.
