Principal’s Welcome Letter

Hawthorne Avenue School

From the Desk of H. Grady James IV, Principal

Dear Hawthorne Avenue Parents:

Welcome to the Hawthorne Avenue School Family! We are extremely excited to have this opportunity to bring out the educational best in your child. This year’s school wide goals will be:

  • Improve Student Achievement
  • Improve School and Classroom Culture
  • Increase Parental Involvement

Holding fast to the notion that, “A parent is the child’s first teacher,” we understand that we cannot accomplish our school goals and maximize your child’s potential without your help. To that end, I implore you to speak with your child often about the importance of putting their education first, having 100% attendance, being prepared for learning everyday by having a positive attitude and focus. Partner with us and watch your child soar!

The staff at Hawthorne Avenue School joins me in encouraging you to participate in your child’s education. Be a part of our community by attending events like Back to School Night, Parent-Teacher Conference Nights, or our Monday morning Parents’ Cafe. Meet with your. Our teachers have daily prep periods where they are free to discuss your child’s academic growth with you.

Vice Principal Porter and I will are available daily to address your questions and/or concerns. Student academic growth and achievement is our #1 priority. If you need to speak with any of us, just make an appointment in the main office.

The administrative staff is here to assist and support you in any way that we can. We are looking forward to a great school year.

Educationally Yours,

H. Grady James IV-Principal
