    September 1, 2017

    Seattle, WA – Hawthorne Elementary earned a 2017 Partnership School Award from the National Network of Partnership Schools (NNPS) at Johns Hopkins University. Hawthorne was recognized for making excellent progress in strengthening and sustaining a comprehensive program of school, family, and community partnerships.

    Hawthorne, a member of NNPS, provided detailed descriptions of specific strategies that help to engage more and different families in ways that support school improvement goals for student success. NNPS looks for evidence of good program development including teamwork, leadership, goal-linked plans for action, implementation, evaluation, and network connections.

    “Hawthorne is applying research-based approaches to strengthen its welcoming climate and to engage parents and community partners in ways that improve student attendance, behavior, achievement, health, high school graduation rates, and other student outcomes,” said Dr. Joyce L. Epstein, Director of NNPS.

    Hawthorne will continue to strengthen its program of school, family, and community partnerships in the new school year to help all students succeed at high levels. Read about NNPS at
