At Hawthorne Elementary School, we are committed to keeping everyone safe and to being respectful and courteous neighbors to those who live around our school. Be safe and patient when walking and driving -- your children are learning from you! Cross streets only at crosswalks or at street corners. Use the blue crosswalk in the parking lot to walk to and from your car. Do not walk in front of cars that are in line in the loading zone (white curb),or in the second lane next to the loading zone. When in line to drop off or pick up students, a driver MUST remain with the car. Park only in defined parking spaces. For a Parking Map in English or Spanish, click on the links on the left side of this page. We work closely with the City of Riverside Traffic Division to provide additional parking -- called Special Event Parking -- during periods of high-demand, such as the first week of school, and for special occasions, such as Back-to-School Night. Click here to see a Special Event Parking Map in English or Spanish. Remember that it is never permissible to park in front of a fire hydrant or next to a red curb (emergency lane).

Exploratory Music for fifth-graders is underway. Students are learning about instruments they may play if they join Beginning Band in October. Our advanced band has begun under the direction of our new band teacher Mr. Michael Collins. We continue to build our own inventory of instruments and related equipment so that no student is excluded from participation.

All of Hawthorne's students participate in a teacher-developed program called ARTECH. Hawthorne’s students learn to create and interpret art in many forms and use technology across all curricular areas, from the beginning of transitional kindergarten to the end of sixth grade. Teachers and staff are committed to teaching visual and performing arts based on the Common Core State Standards, and to integrating arts instruction across the curriculum. Technology is used extensively as a learning and creative tool by both teachers and students. Students master technology skills embedded in the Common Core State Standards while also using technology to develop into contributing members of a global community of learners and innovators. Hawthorne’s ARTECH program develops creative and critical thinkers who are fully engaged in their educational experience.
Standard Parking Rules are in effect. Easy parking is available on Victoria Avenue on the side closest to the school. This is a convenient place to park if you need to leave your vehicle briefly to pick up or drop off students, especially those in preschool and kindergarten.
