    Principal's Message

    Principals PictureMy name is Victoria Velasquez and I am proud to serve as  the principal of Victor F. Hodge Elementary School.   Hodge  school is an amazing place for children to learn and grow. I am grateful for the collaborative and supportive parents and staff.  By working together, Hodge offers an enriching program for all students.
