    First Place Winners

    Congratulations to Divinagloria Ozuna-Aragon and Jailynn Cainn, who won first place at the Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement (MESA) Day regional competition for their prototype of a prosthetic arm. They were competing against first-place winners from MESA centers throughout Los Angeles and Riverside Counties. Their hard work and planning definitely paid off! Excellent work!

    Hawthorne Middle School earned this honor under the leadership of MESA teacher Yvette Saenz. Ms. Saenz has taught MESA since she began teaching at HMS 14 years ago. “I developed a passion for teaching MESA from my mentor teacher. I enjoy giving students an opportunity to participate and think about science differently while preparing them to be career ready,” Ms. Saenz shared.

    MESA focuses on the integration of Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), emphasizing science, engineering, design, and inquiry. The rigorous content and application show how science and engineering are practiced in the real world.

    HMS Uniform Policy

    All students must adhere to the mandatory uniform policy implemented at Hawthorne Middle School.  All students will be required to wear the established uniform on a daily basis.

    Families seeking assistance with securing a uniform for their child(ren) should contact the office.
