Recognizing Student's Birthdays
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!

Principal Victoria Velasquez says Hodge is fortunate to have such supportive parents and staff. By working together, Hodge offers an enriching program to students.
Since 1989, Ms. Velasquez has served as an instructional aide, teacher and District Bilingual Literacy Coach in Azusa Unified. In 2012-13, she was a Los Angeles County Teacher of the Year. She holds a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from Azusa Pacific University.
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.
