We are a school of many races and cultures. The Hawthorne School community respects all of its members. We, as African-Americans, Asian-Americans, European-Americans, Hispanic/Latino-Americans, Native Americans and others, contribute our knowledge and experience to strengthen the community as a whole.
Welcome to Hawthorne Elementary
We invite you to learn more about our school.
We foster acceptance of all cultures. We strive to provide a vision of a multi-cultural community. Hawthorne parents feel connected to the school, and the principal and staff are accessible to parents. Learning at Hawthorne is considered a partnership. We encourage parents to take an active role in their child’s program. Parents, students, and teachers work together to set learning goals for the year. Parents can also volunteer in our classrooms and lend their time and talents to support learning in many ways.
