Superintendent's Message

Early Literacy for all Hawthorne Children

Research has confirmed the importance of early literacy in student success. A student who is prepared to enter kindergarten with strong early literacy skills will be more successful. This translates into improved student achievement. It is of paramount importance that our children gain the skills necessary to be good readers and thinkers by third grade. The outcomes for students acquiring these important skills are much more promising than for students who struggle with reading by third grade.

In order to promote strong literacy in all children within the city of Hawthorne, the Hawthorne School District has invested in Footsteps2Brilliance. This is a web-based program for children ages two to eight which builds many important skills including phonics, comprehension, writing, and decoding. This is all done through engaging activities that children will enjoy. They won’t see it as just learning they will see it as learning that is fun!

Anyone who resides within the city of Hawthorne may register for the program. Please visit the Hawthorne School District website to access the information. I am grateful to our Hawthorne School District Board of Trustees for investing the resources that will benefit so many Hawthorne families.
