Hawthorne Elementary has such a bad rating that the children are not permitted any kind of field trip whatsoever. The "Zero Tolerance for Bullying" is not in effect as it is believed to be. My child was not protected on the playground, in the classroom, nor anytime supervision should be used. I would be told time and again that action would be taken but it never was followed through. I asked if I could talk to the parent of the child and was told it was not a good idea. I am not the only parent who had problems with unresolved bullying in this school. Like the other parents, my child will be attending another school next year.
My children are happy and all the children seem to get along well. There are always mother, fathers, parents and teachers welcoming them into school every morning. The extracurricular activities are guided by great teachers that take the time to make my children feel welcome.
