Principal's Message

Greetings Families,

What are you positive about? I am positive that Hawthorne is a school of continuous improvement. I am positive that Hawthorne Elementary has one of the hardest working staffs in Warren Township. I am so positive about the countless hours spent on ensuring that each and every student at our school is successful. From our Support Staff to the teachers that spend 6 1/2 hours in class with your child(ren) each day, THANK YOU for all you do to help kids. This week we celebrated 'Staff Appreciation Week'. Our PTA worked tirelessly to surprise the staff each day with gifts and wonderful food. It is unbelievable how fast this year has gone and what a difference a year makes! Lastly, I am positive about the support from our parents and community that makes Hawthorne a great place for kids to learn!

#HawkPride #GOGETIT

Have a wonderful weekend. Mr. Butler

Kindergarten News for 2019/2020

The General Assembly has passed a bill that states children must be 5 on or before September 1st to enter KG. This is a change from the previous law that put the age at 5 on or before August 1.


We currently have a limited supply of 2018/2019 Hawthorne Yearbooks for sale in the office. They are $11 each. If you are interested, send $11 in an envelope with your student's name and room number on the front.
