Jessica Rosenthal
Dear Hawthorne Family and Visitors,

Welcome to Hawthorne Elementary's exciting website! We are proud that our digital home reflects the innovative work that is taking place in our mortar and brick home. The staff and students of Hawthorne are working together to create a school where students are challenged to do their best and are supported to be successful.

We are committed to our vision that every Hawthorne student will enter middle shool on or above grade level, and it is evident in all we do.
