Your Kid Can Be A Hero!
Every kid dreams about heroes and truth be told, so do some adults!  Who doesn't want to be a hero with the cape and the special powers, I know I do.  If your kid runs through the house with a scarf tied around his neck ( so it can flap in the wind) dressed only in underwear, you need to listen up.  There is a place in Chandler Arizona where every kid is a hero.  It all started in the year 2001 and involved someone who held the highest office in the state of Arizona, namely Governor Jane D. Hull.  Governor Hull, always an advocate of education,  passed the Student's First School Facilities Funding program, and under her leadership  and with a contract from Qwest Communications Arizona became one of the first states to ensure all public schools had Internet access.  Sounds like Governor Hull was a hero to the children of Arizona and that is why the Jane D. Hull Elementary school was named in her honor.


I Love Hull Hero's!

They are very informative and keep everyone up to date. They are truly there for the kids. They have that family atmosphere and want families to become involved, not only with their kids but all that is being done at the school. They are big on volunteering your time and are very helpful. There is alot to do with the kids and in the classrooms. They are always open to suggestions and seem to have a well-rounded group of people on the PTO. This is a very positive and encouraging campus. My oldest went through there and has made friends which he has kept now through middle school. My younger 2 are still there and have many, many friends and know that they can turn to their teachers for anything. I really like how they approach and teach "bullying". My kids are aware and have learned so much from that. They know the difference and will stand up with their friends. It just brings out the character in them. I have seen them mature and grow into well-versed kids. It's awesome! —Submitted by a parent"  Another pleased parent writes " I have two children that attend Hull. We absolutely love this school, the staff is exceptional and I believe go out of their way to make you feel welcomed. I am amazed that the front office staff seems to know everyone by name that comes through the front door. Each of the teachers that my children have been fortunate to have are excellent communicators, and truly care about the children. We chose this school, and my children had been attending on a open enrollment basis. I see the atmosphere as very positive and enthusiastic. I am proud to be associated with this school and the staff.
