Hawk Elementary has established a reputation for creating successful learners by building a true Professional Learning Community that take into account the roles of students, teachers, staff, parents and volunteers. Through a variety of educational techniques and student involvement programs, Hawk students learn the value of education and service as they progress through their time at the school.
The school was the first in the district to provide service to special education students through inclusion in regular classrooms and, with programs ranging from summer reading initiatives to school assemblies recognizing student achievement, it continues to provide multiple avenues for all students to learn and grow.
You can now send parent absence notes to the school through email. Make sure to include: student name, date(s) of absence, and reason for absence. Please send electronic notes to firstname.lastname@example.org
