Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Hawthorne Elementary School! I am looking forward to working in partnership with you and our staff to make this year challenging, productive, and enjoyable for every child. Click on the headline for the rest of the message.
At Hawthorne Elementary School, we are committed to keeping everyone safe and to being respectful and courteous neighbors to those who live around our school. Be safe and patient when walking and driving -- your children are learning from you! Cross streets only at crosswalks or at street corners. Use the blue crosswalk in the parking lot to walk to and from your car. Do not walk in front of cars that are in line in the loading zone (white curb),or in the second lane next to the loading zone. When in line to drop off or pick up students, a driver MUST remain with the car. Park only in defined parking spaces. For a Parking Map in English or Spanish, click on the links on the left side of this page. We work closely with the City of Riverside Traffic Division to provide additional parking -- called Special Event Parking -- during periods of high-demand, such as the first week of school, and for special occasions, such as Back-to-School Night. Click here to see a Special Event Parking Map in English or Spanish. Remember that it is never permissible to park in front of a fire hydrant or next to a red curb (emergency lane).
Student Voice and Choice make learning personal! Hawthorne is one of five RUSD schools selected for the first group (Cohort 1) of RUSD Custom 5 schools. Custom 5 refers to the five elements of Personalized Learning, which is a way of teaching and learning that allows students to express their Voice and exercise Choice in their learning. To learn more about Personalized Learning, click on the headline or the Custom5 logo.
All of Hawthorne's students participate in a teacher-developed program called ARTECH. Hawthorne’s students learn to create and interpret art in many forms and use technology across all curricular areas, from the beginning of transitional kindergarten to the end of sixth grade. Teachers and staff are committed to teaching visual and performing arts based on the Common Core State Standards, and to integrating arts instruction across the curriculum. Technology is used extensively as a learning and creative tool by both teachers and students. Students master technology skills embedded in the Common Core State Standards while also using technology to develop into contributing members of a global community of learners and innovators. Hawthorne’s ARTECH program develops creative and critical thinkers who are fully engaged in their educational experience.
