Effective July 1, 2012, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH) is rescinding the universal TB testing requirement for children entering kindergarten or a California school for the first time. Instead, universal TB screening and risk-based testing will be incorporated into the existing CA State physical examination requirement for children entering first grade.

Three Hawthorne Schools Recognized by the California Department of Education

As we come to the close of another school year, I am happy to announce that three of our schools are being recognized by the California Department of Education as Gold Ribbon Schools. The Gold Ribbon Schools Award was created to honor schools while the California Distinguished Schools Program is on hold for the next couple of years.

The focus of this award is to recognize schools that have made tremendous gains in the implementation of the California academic content and performance standards for all students. These include the Common Core State Standards for language arts and mathematics, English language development standards, and science standards.

The award alternates between elementary and secondary schools. This year our middle schools and high school had the opportunity to complete an application. Next year our elementary schools will have the same opportunity.

Hawthorne Middle School, Prairie Vista Middle School, and Hawthorne Math and Science Academy have all been recognized as Gold Ribbon Award Schools. This is a great honor and very much deserved by all of these outstanding schools.

In closing I want to take this opportunity to thank the entire learning community staff, students, families, and community partners for helping to make the 2014-2015 another successful year. I am so proud and honored to be a part of this community!

Zela Davis STEM Super Saturday
STEM Super Saturday took place at Zela Davis Elementary on Saturday, March 14. It was a remarkable day for Zela Davis students, parents, and staff! Nearly 300 K-5 families attended and explored careers and projects in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Families participated in teacher-led lessons focused around design challenges to build bridges, hovercrafts, roller coasters, spaghetti towers, and make snow. Bud Carson and HMSA led student-based project demos to show how Zela Davis "bridges" to higher levels of STEM education. Finally, families explored six different classrooms that were transformed into Career Exploration Rooms where students met with professionals in various STEM related fields. This event could not have transpired without the support and presence of Iridescent, Boeing, West Basin Municipal Water District, One World Dolls, HMSA, and Bud Carson Middle School.

On February 18th, the Hawthorne School District held its 9th Annual Spelling Bee for students in grades 4-6 at Hawthorne Middle School.  Twenty contestants representing seven elementary schools and three middle schools competed on stage in front of an audience comprised of friends, family, and HSD staff.  The students who competed in the district spelling bee were all winners of their classroom spelling bees and also winners or runner-ups in their school spelling bees.  

After eight rounds, Lydia Neguse, a 6th grader at Bud Carson Middle School, won the competition. Lydia went on to compete in the Los Angeles County Spelling Bee on March 25th and she took 6th place in highly competitive event. We are so proud of her.

HMSA Aviators Soar into the Playoffs!

The boys’ soccer team at HMSA has high hopes as they head into the CIF playoffs this week. The team will be leaving the region to challenge teams around Southern CA and beyond. This Friday they will be traveling to Covina to challenge Covina High School at 3:00 pm. The team is led by captain Christian E., dominant midfielder Jacob R., and consistent defender and co-captain Eduardo G. The soccer program has been built over the last 4 years by Coach Randy Launius and now encompasses 28 players that span all grade levels. Making the CIF playoffs is a great accomplishment for the players and for HMSA, and a glimpse of what awaits the future of Aviator soccer. Go Aviators!
