Law Enforcement Survival Kits

In celebration of National Police Week, Clara Barton-Hawthorne Elementary School students, staff, and families presented local police departments with Law Enforcement Survival Kits. The kits consisted of thank you cards made by students and candy, such as gum "to help everyone stick together," and Starbursts "for the burst of energy you need." 

Self-Directed Academy

The Self-Directed Academy (SDA) puts each student in the driver's seat of their own education. With an instructional model built on self-paced learning, flexible scheduling, technology integration, STEM, and project-based learning, students determine their own educational path with guidance from educators. SDA is best-suited for independent learners who benefit from in-person contact. Registration is now open for students in grades 6-8 in fall 2024!
