Tuberculosis Screening Updated Requirements

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.

Message from the Superintendent

Welcome Back

The start of a new school year always holds excitement for me. Seeing all of the students returning with an eagerness to be back (even if they won’t admit it), and a promise to study hard, do all of their homework, and make their parents proud. Seeing the entering kindergarteners, some looking forward to showing their independence and others a bit apprehensive about letting Mom and Dad leave them; seeing the entering sixth grade students and ninth grade students navigating a new environment; enjoying in the excitement of the seniors at HMSA knowing that this is their last year with us and having some of that same apprehension about preparing to leave for college or career. I see students each year I have had the pleasure of knowing for many years. I am always so proud to see how they have grown and matured.

This year promises to be an exciting one with the implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). We have been preparing for the last two years and now we will begin the exciting and challenging work of execution. I am confident that the commitment we have made and the time we have taken will prove to be a benefit for our staff and students. Many staff members have taken a leadership role in the process from CCSS basics, to participating in a new math adoption, to providing professional development to our teachers. All of their hard work is an example of dedicated professionals providing what is best for our students.

The start of this year also brings a second year of positive funding for schools. We are putting those funds to good use. We have hired additional teachers, expanded the number of counselors and coaches at our sites, added security officers district-wide. Our technology continues to expand and evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of our staff and students. We continue to seek quality applicants to provide additional yard supervision at all of our schools. We have been able to expand our maintenance and operations staff to keep our schools in good repair. We look forward to providing students with additional expanded learning opportunities throughout the school year. In the process of developing our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) we heard from community stakeholders that there are many needs for extended learning opportunities for our students, both remediation and enrichment. These funds will allow us to make this available for our students.

I am certain this year will be another exciting one in which we will celebrate many successes, face some challenges, and work together to do what we do best. . .provide our students with the best possible educational experience. I thank all of you for being an important part of what is the Hawthorne School District. Each and every one of us (parents, students, staff, and community) serve an important purpose in our school community.  Happy New (School) Year!!

Hustle for Huskies

Hustle for Huskies is a star studded event! On Saturday, June 7th Bud Carson STEM Academy hosted the 4th annual Hustle for Huskies event where all of the proceeds are put back into ten sports programs. City officials came out to support our programs such as, city council members, Angie Reyes English, Nilo Michelin, and Mayor Chris Brown. Our superintendent Dr. Helen E. Morgan and Hawthorne School District board members, Alexandre Monteiro and Luciano Aguilar, all made an appearance supporting Bud Carson Middle School. But wait there is more, LA Galaxy great, and former Bud Carson student, Gyasi Zardes came back to his home school to show support. The mayor presented Gyasi with a proclamation during the event. 

Sports and academics play an important part of Bud Carson's culture. With help from the community and local business donations we were able to raise over $6,300.  Families that came to this event were wowed by the talent show, basketball tournament, soccer tournament, LA Galaxy reps and all of the local businesses that came together to make this one amazing day!
