Principal's Point

Today, 11.26.19, marks the 73rd day of school. In this season of thanks, there are far more than 73 reasons to be thankful. Here are three that need to be highlighted:

  • Hawthorne students are trying hard to make better choices which has led to the lowest number of referrals and suspensions in over eight years. This increases learning time and is an improvement from last year’s great growth!

  • Hawthorne staff continues to be focused on the growth of ALL LEARNERS. Each grade level continues to stay focused on students’ development in reading and math. Students are working hard to increase their achievement. Staff is also working to improve each other’s instruction.

  • Hawthorne families have done a great job supporting student learning and the growth of our school.

This is why HawkNation is forever THANKFUL for all those that support our school as we strive to show #HAWKPRIDE each and every day! Please remember that “Together We Can Make a Difference!” Enjoy your weekend! Mr. Butler #TAKEACTION
