In preparation for computer science education week, Mrs. Warren-Givens invited her son, Mr. Travis Warren, to her 4th grade class to discuss the importance of understanding technology and learning more about computer science. Travis is a Teaneck High School graduate who participated in the T.E.A.M.S. Academy offered at the high school. He continued on to graduate from Temple University earning a BS in Information Science and Technology. Currently, Travis is a Service Now-Technical Consultant. The students enjoyed having a discussion with Travis as he shared his educational journey, described how he uses and creates technology, and answered questions about pursuing a career in computer science.
“Rocks tell the story of the Earth! Every rock no matter how big or small has a story!” (Sidney Horenstein) On Tuesday December 11, 2014 Mr. Sidney Horenstien, grandfather of Hawthorne student Tyler Tejada, science educator at the Museum of Natural History, and former professor of geology at Hunter College in NYC, visited with Ms. Norris’ class to talk to the students about rocks and minerals. Mr. Horenstein shared some really cool and amazing rocks and fossils with the children. They were able to touch the rocks and fossils and hear all about their history. They held obsidian, a fern fossil, a snail shell fossil and granite. They enjoyed a wonderful Q&A session where Mr. Horenstien entertained their questions about rocks. Some of them are now thinking of becoming geologists!

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 Words of Wisdom quick link to read our very own inspirational Words of Wisdom from Hawthorne!
