Message from the Principal





Dear students and Families:

March 2018


Our commitment at Hawthorne Middle School is to provide a safe learning environment where students develop their critical thinking skills and develop additional skills like perseverance, resourcefulness, respect, responsibility, and empathy. We ultimately desire for students to develop into quality individuals who create meaningful lives for themselves and make a difference in a changing global society.


Hawthorne Middle School was recently recognized by WestEd as a Beating the Odds School.


WestEd is a highly regarded nonprofit research, development, and service agency. WestEd works with education entities throughout the United States to promote excellence, achieve equity, and improve learning for children, youth, and adults.

In their large-scale study of over 1,700 middle schools and high schools in California, Hawthorne Middle School made the list of 40 “Beating the Odds Schools,” where both above average student achievement and exceptionally-positive school environments were exhibited.

As the instructional leader at Hawthorne Middle School, I would like to extend my gratitude to my staff, students, and parents. This achievement is due to the collective dedication and commitment to maximize each student’s potential to achieve educational excellence.



Parents, remember to complete and submit the HSD LCAP survey. The survey is available on the district and school website. We also have paper copies of the survey in the office.

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!
