Principal's Message

Message from Ms. Pitt, the principal of Hawthorne Elementary School: 

A wise person once stated that “ the ideal school should be a cross between Harvard and Disneyland; educational excellence and the happiest place on earth.”

Hawthorne is an educational institution which exemplifies excellence.  I am honored to have the opportunity to continue this tradition of excellence as the new principal.  I intend to lead Hawthorne’s remarkable staff as we seek to cultivate critical thinkers, problem solvers, innovators, effective communicators, and globally aware citizens.  Through collaboration with our partners in education, such as our families and community members, our school will continue to be a place where scholars can receive an equitable education rooted in intellectual rigor and social harmony.  The staff at Hawthorne encourages and welcomes your feedback and input. I look forward to working with the Hawthorne school community, as we assist our scholars in acquiring the skills to reach their potential and create our “ideal school”.    


Ms. Pitt
