Welcome from Ms. Jennings

Julie JenningsDear Parents:

Welcome to Hawes Elementary School!  Although I may be a bit biased, Hawes is a very unique place.  One of the amazing aspects of our school is our community – our team.  Team Hawes is comprised of a professional staff, dedicated and committed parents, eager students and strong community partners – all of whom are focused on providing a rigorous core curriculum that ensures that our students become lifelong learners and global citizens.  Our team is focused on the needs of all of our students in order to maintain a caring and supportive environment to enhance student growth. 


In reflecting on our community, our teaching staff is dedicated to improving their craft so that our students experience learning in an engaging manner.  Of the 21 teachers, approximately 12 of them are currently parents at our school or were parents of Hawes Hawks.  Several of our support staff also fall into this category.  Wearing dual hats means that our staff is even more invested in ensuring that our programs and instruction is high quality.  Walking through campus allows all to see that volunteers are an huge part of our daily life.  Volunteers help in classrooms, in the AR room and throughout our school.  Our students are focused on pushing themselves to learn.  


By focusing on modeling learning, taking risks and laughing as we go, we do our best to build the skills in our students that will provide a firm foundation for an every changing world.  We strive to teach perseverance, responsibility and creating life long learners in our students.  Through our teamwork and collaboration, we strive for creating AWE in learning!
