Hawthorne Elementary School is a community school that is focused on doing what is in the best interest of students. Through the use of research-based, effective teaching strategies coupled with clear and consistent behavioral expectations, students will maximize their learning potential and increase their achievement.
Hawthorne is a family of learners striving to make a positive impact on students and our community. We understand the importance of meeting the needs of our community and employ several strategies to help meet those needs. Hawthorne’s two largest community supports are:
The Hawthorne Community Wellness Center, which is located within the school, is staffed by employees from Community Hospital. A nurse practitioner, counselor, and receptionist are available to meet a variety of medical and social needs of the students, parents, and community members.
The Hawthorne PTA is another key to the success of the school. Parents and staff have several opportunities to engage in activities, projects, and events which build relationships and reinforces the vital role parents play in the success of their children. Our motto is, "Together We Can Make a Difference."
"I believe everyone will learn; what and how much is learned greatly depends on instruction and experiences. When students are given great instruction and experiences in a positive learning environment, their ability to be successful is greatly improved.
