School Climate - Parent Survey

Dear Parents:
Each year the State of Georgia Department of Education requests that our school conduct the Georgia School Health Climate Survey for staff, students (3rd/4th/and 5th graders only), and parents.  This particular survey collects important data which we analyze in an attempt to improve our practices and processes to meet the needs of our students and community.  Below is a link which is for the Parent Survey.  We're asking our parents to take a few minutes to go online and use the link below to complete the survey.  The information we gather will be valuable for our ongoing school-wide planning.  The survey results are anonymous and secured as such.  Thank you for your consideration in completing this survey, we appreciate it.

Backpack Blessings

Backpack Blessings is a weekend food program for children attending Hendricks Elementary School. Each Friday, students will go to the Backpack Blessings Room to receive five food items. The program will last throughout the school year and is free of charge.

If you are interested in your child participating in this program, please let your child's teacher know. You will receive an application that will need to be completed and signed by a parent or guardian, then returned to the school counselors.

love volunteersWe Love Volunteers

The work our teachers, support staff, front office and administrators do is important to our school. It is a full time job keeping a great school great!

We wouldn't have a lot of the special 'extras' that sets Hendricks apart if it weren't for the hours that our volunteers give to our school.

If you would like to be a Hendricks volunteer, please check out all the ways you can help on our Parent Involvement page.

We hope to see you around!
