Principal's Message

Welcome to the Hawthorne PS Website.

Hawthorne PS is a special place for students. It is an environment where children can grow and develop the skills necessary to become successful adults. Here, students are encouraged to exercise thinking skills and problem solving abilities by asking questions, testing theories and producing models. We believe that every student is capable and responsible for their progress in learning. We encourage children to set goals and build onto their knowledge, skill and talent.

The staff and students of HPS maintain a safe and inclusive atmosphere by having high expectations of each other as individuals. Respect for each other is a cornerstone for developing our classroom learning communities. Younger students are encouraged to solve conflicts by using WITS, while older students are encouraged to take a leadership role within the school by helping to create and maintain an environment of respect and acceptance for everyone.

I invite and encourage parents and guardians to come to school and be part of our learning community. Visit our website, follow us on twitter, and look for our regular school newsletter that comes out during the school year. Our monthly School Council meeting is also a place to engage in conversation about learning at school and to meet the parents of children at school. We are always happy to have new faces join us around the table.

I hope you will find the tools and information on this site helpful in answering your questions.

I look forward to getting to know you better this year,

Kristin Kopra, Principal
