I was greatly disappointed in the graduation ceremony. The view of just forgetting the motivational speaking because the original speaker bailed out was poor judgement. A teacher or anyone could have offered something rather than skipping this very important part of all graduations. Why did the invitation have the address to a school that was in session, and no one answering the bell, when the ceremony was a block away? The sound system failed? The principles dwelling on just the accomplishments of two students made me question weather the high standards that Larry Hawkins had, were being aimed at, or left to just a little more than what is expected of this area of the city. Why is Larry Hawkins picture not in the entrance or office?
The principal needs to be under review with the board members in all my years I never saw atteacher that is foul like him unprofessional in school rude to parents and students we as parents need to come together as one and put this in order.
There were great expectation when this school opened up. It seemed to be like a foot in on the success train for children but the only preparatory measures seem to be in the zero tolerance discipline structure. They treat the children like notches on the roster and offer little personal development programs aside from the animated neighborhood it's tucked into. Nothing at all too different from a regular CPS school.
Larry Hawkins is a very great school. They have good staff. The school is just great. By it being its first year opening it is on a really good start. I have no doubts that next year Larry Hawkins will be the best in the state. I believe that it will with all my heart.
