Recognizing Student's Birthdays

Hodge Cougars,

Starting August of 2014 Hodge Elementary School will have a new policy regarding the celebration of birthdays at school. Treats will no longer be a part of student birthday celebrations. Children’s birthdays will be celebrated in class with each teacher acknowledging birthdays in a special way such as a birthday crown, singing happy birthday, allowing a child to share a special book with the class, or in another manner appropriate for their age and grade.  There will continue to be opportunities for seasonal parties and other special events. 

Although we are eager to celebrate each individual and to acknowledge their special day, it’s important to maintain a safe, respectful, and productive learning environment.Thank you for supporting in our efforts to keep students healthy and focused to learn!

Hodge Cougars are “Pawsitive”

At Hodge School our primary focus is learning! Even our emphasis on character and behavior is meant to be instructive. We have a shared commitment to create and sustain a positive learning environment for all community members.


This year we have aligned our awards program to highlight Hodge School’s guiding principles of “Pawsitive” behavior. Hodge Cougars care! We are safe, respectful, and productive!  These awards will be based on our guiding principles of “Pawsitive” behavior.


This new system is aligned with a district-wide initiative: Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). We look forward to acknowledging many more of our outstanding students while simultaneously reinforcing our shared commitment to creating and sustaining a caring, safe, respectful, and productive learning environment for all.


Next Hodge Cougar, “Pawsitive” Behavior Assembly will be on Thursday, February 5th

Congratulations Hodge

For the second year in a row, Hodge Elementary School received the Title I Academic Achievement Award. Only 56 schools in California are receiving this prestigious award for sustained progress in academic improvement among low-income students. "These schools serve students facing real challenges, and they’ve risen to meet them through hard work and dedication. It is inspiring to see their students achieve more in the classroom today so they can enjoy more opportunity in the years to come,” said State Superintendent Torlakson.
