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!

School Site Council Elections
You have received a letter and telephone call regarding an invitation to participate in SSC. Your involvement and commitment to the educational process is one of the major factors in your child’s academic success. In addition, parent input at the school-site level helps determine a school’s overall success. You have an opportunity to guide the direction of Hodge’s focus in the school site plan is to serve as a member of the School Site Council (SSC). This council is an elected team of teachers, parents, and site personnel who, along with the principal, oversees the allocation of the school funds designed to enhance understanding and success in learning the core curriculum and is responsive to the needs of every student in school.
The SSC will meets approximately four to six times during the school year. Parent representatives are to be selected and voted on by the school population at large. Once volunteer representatives are identified, a letter/ballot will be sent home for casting of votes. Please consider volunteering to serve on this vital school-community council. It is your opportunity to have a say in your child’s education. Please notify us in the school office if you desire to be nominated by Wednesday, October 15, 2014.
Our SSC Meeting is scheduled for Monday, October 27th at 2:30 PM. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Thank you for your support!
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.
