Words of Wisdom
Hawthorne School uses Project Wisdom, a character education program that infuses thought-provoking, inspirational messages narrated over our PA system twice per week. The few words are intended to uplift and promote a more positive and effective school climate, while encouraging children to make great choices. This year at Hawthorne, our children and their teachers have taken ownership in writing their own Words of Wisdom as a class. Check out our new Words of Wisdom quick link to read our very own inspirational Words of Wisdom from Hawthorne!
