In the 2019-2020 school year, we have an exciting opportunity to begin to create stronger academic and extra-curricular programming for our schools in the McLain feeder pattern.
In February 2019, our Board of Education approved a recommendation presented by the North Tulsa Education Task Force to create a single middle school for the McLain Feeder Pattern at Monroe Demonstration Academy. The expansion of Monroe means students enrolled at Penn Elementary will have new neighborhood schools for the 2019-2020 school year. Students will now attend either Anderson Elementary School or Hawthorne Elementary School as their new neighborhood schools. Both of these schools are wonderful learning communities, and their teachers and students look forward to welcoming you next year.
Below you will find more information about both schools.
We strive to prepare every student for college success by analyzing each individual student's progress and providing focused, rigorous instruction every day, every lesson, all day without exception. We believe each child can and will succeed; we continually examine our practice and honor our school community by acting with integrity.
Anderson went through a full renovation in the summer of 2018. From new floors to smart boards, including a renovated library, these improvements have energized the students and staff.
Technology has been an integral part of the classroom as the technology ration is 1:1 between students and devices. The prevalence of laptops in the classroom and individualized, personalized learning gives students time to read on their own, building the reading skills that many of them were lacking at the beginning of the year. The result is students that are performing at or above their grade level, and that gives them the confidence to carry their successes into other areas throughout the school year.
We look forward to welcoming all of our new students and their families for the 2019-2020 school year!
Our faculty and staff strive to provide a learning environment that enables all students to maximize and achieve their learning potential.
We want our students to be a part of a positive environment while they learn and our building is full of bright colors and smiling faces to reflect that. Our teachers set high expectations for our students while encouraging individuality and acceptance. Whether it's in the classroom, on the basketball court, or in the community, we are confident that our students are going to succeed and excel.
Students have the opportunity to participate in activities and clubs that include Ambassadors, Girls Empower, Men of the Future, Garden Club, and Book Club.
Student Council offers our fifth grade Hawks the opportunity to actively participate in school-wide initiatives, led their hands to community causes, and see democracy in action. While representing Hawthorne, our student leaders learn responsibility, develop pride in our school, and build awareness of events at a local, national, and global level.
We look forward to meeting all of our new students and families for the 2019-2020 school year!
