Hodge & University Spirit Days

Every Wednesday is Hodge Spirit Day. Wear your favorite Hodge T-shirt!


Every Friday is University Spirit Day.  Wear your favorite University T-shirt!


During STEM Camp, Hodge students are busy using CAD programs to design items that would be useful in outer space. They are using a 3-D printer to make a mold of their designed items.  Students are also creating rockets, doing science experiments, taking a nature hike and much more. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math and the camp is designed to encourage students to consider careers in these fields.

For the second year in a row, Hodge Elementary School will receive 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.
