Message from the Principal




Dear students and Families:

January 2018


School is more than the academic instruction that occurs in the classroom. Our students’ education also depends on an environment that supports learning. It is impossible for students to achieve their fullest potential if they fear for their safety. The long-term effects of bullying, cruelty, bias, and hate-motivated behavior can have a tremendous impact on student success for the victims and the perpetrators.

Bullying is defined as any severe or pervasive physical or verbal act or conduct, including communications made in writing or by means of an electronic act that is directed toward one or more pupils; and that has had, or can be reasonably predicted to have, one or more of the following effects:


  • Placing a reasonable pupil or pupils in fear of harm to that his/her/their person or property;
  • Causing a reasonable pupil to experience a substantially detrimental effect on his or her physical or mental health;
  • Causing a reasonable pupil to experience substantial interference with his or her academic performance; or
  • Causing a reasonable pupil to experience substantial interference with his or her ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities, or privileges provided by a school.


There is no way to guarantee that your child will never be bullied, but there are things you can do to help. Bullying can have many faces and environments. Talk to your middle school student about healthy relationships. Direct your student to report incidents of bullying immediately to school staff. Let your student know that he/she is not expected to handle this problem alone. Parents may contact the school office to report incidents of bullying, (310) 676-0167. School office hours are 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.

The Hawthorne Middle School staff believes that all students can succeed. We encourage all students to join and participate in school clubs. We are committed to supporting students at school and in their community. Our goal is to develop students’ skills that allow them to navigate social interactions successfully and to make positive contributions to the school culture.

HMS Literacy Night

HMS had their annual Literacy Night on Thursday, November 9th in the school's cafeteria. Close to 200 people were in attendance to take part in some Literacy Fun! Families were encouraged to visit as many stations as possible so that they can fill up their stamp cards which then became their raffle ticket.

We had 4 lucky winners at the end of the night that were able to take home a family-themed basket which included a board game, puzzle, snacks, and HMS apparel. All other HMS students walked away with a free chapter book that was donated by the local Hawthorne Public Library.

Literacy Night was a huge success. Thank you to all who helped in making this event a great one.

Traffic and Drop-Offs

Please remember that it is a violation of the vehicle code to drop off students in front of the barricade on 129th street if you are not parked in a designated area. Also, stopping to park and drop off students in the alley off of 129th is prohibited. The gated parking lots are for employee parking only. We open this gate for parent nights and for the ALL program pick up only. Thanks for your support!
