• Hawthorne  

    Our proposal to improve the building is designed to ensure Hawthorne Elementary School students have a facility that meets the educational needs of 21st century students.  When complete, Hawthorne will be a smarter school in many ways, including: 
    • ADA compliance throughout the facility, including an elevator to the gymnasium and second floor.
    • A visible, safe and secure main entrance.
    • A new cafeteria/multipurpose room for student dining, music classes and performances.
    • A highly functional library/media center.
    • Flexible collaboration spaces for students, teachers and parents.
    • Wireless Internet access for all classes and staff.
    • Additional classrooms to serve increased enrollment.
    • Increased safety, with the building divided into secure zones with electronically activated door closers.
