Our faculty and staff strive to provide a learning environment that enables all students to maximize and achieve their learning potential. We want our students to be a part of a positive environment while they learn, and our building is full of bright colors and smiling faces. Our teachers set high expectations for our students while encouraging individuality and acceptance. Whether it's in the classroom, on the basketball court, or in the community, we are condent that our students are going to succeed and excel.
Strong School culture
Hawthorne's school values are "Peace, Respect, Integrity, Do Our Best, and Everyone's Safe." We are proud of the work that we do to prepare our teachers so that they can promote rigorous learning opportunities in the classroom in order to prepare all students is a priority for us. We work hard on building strong relationships with our students and families. We want students to feel safe in a structured learning environment.
Parents are our most important partner in education. Hawthorne hosts monthly community meetings for parents. The Food Bank provides dinner and the Junior League of Tulsa volunteers to serve dinner. We are excited to give parents an opportunity to come together, and to officially welcome them to the Hawthorne family.
Student Council offers fifth grade Hawks the opportunity to actively participate in school wide initiatives, lend their hands to community causes, and see democracy in actions. While representing Hawthorne, our student leaders learn responsibility, develop pride in our school, and build awareness of events at a local, national, and global level.
Hawthorne has brand new garden beds installed this year to kick off our partnership with Global Gardens to bring the concept of planting, watering, fertilizing and harvesting fresh fruits and vegetables for our students and community. This is our first year of this process but we are excited to see how much we can accomplish this year and prepare for an expansion of our system in the near future.
