Welcome to 2nd Trimester!

Dear Hendrick Ranch Families,

Congratulations on finishing our first trimester! We understand distance learning has been a challenge and we are proud of all that our students have accomplished this trimester! Our school community has come together to make distance learning possible for our young scholars. Daily attendance is very important to your child's success and we thank you for supporting our students in being ready and logging into Zoom on time everyday.

We want you to know that our school is working hard to prepare our classrooms and campus for a hybrid schedule potentially starting on January 25, 2021, pending approval by the county and state. We are following state, county, and district guidelines to make sure our school is ready and safe for students and staff.

Recently, an art kit was sent home at Grab and Go Lunch for all students at Hendrick Ranch! This is a part of our new district wide initiative called Document Today! Students are encouraged to use the art supplies to express their feelings, emotions, and experiences during this global pandemic. Your student's voice matters and is important to us.

Document Today MVUSD Initiative

“Document Today”

Be Vulnerable - Be Honest - Be YOU!

“Document Today” is an intentional approach for social and emotional well being. It is about encouraging our students to use the arts to share their feelings about the world we find ourselves in, and how they are coping emotionally with this pandemic. Simply...

“To Encourage Artful Healing for Student Success.”

All students will receive one art kit at Grab and Go Lunch. The art kit contains 50 sheets of drawing paper, a box of colored pencils, 3 art pencils, and a pencil sharpener. Students are encouraged to use these art supplies to express their emotions, feelings, experiences, and memories during this COVID-19 global pandemic. Art work can be forms of visual arts, dance, theater, drama, creative writing, poetry, music, and more! Student art work can be submitted (with parent/guardian permission) on this link and it will be stored in MVUSD's Document Today COVID-19 Archive!
