Hawthorne's Library Reimagination

Please support Nate’s school library! I’m raising money for the 2012 Hawthorne Library Reimagination campaign and I need your help. Hawthorne Elementary is a K-5 Seattle public school located just blocks from my house. I love our neighborhood school because it does a great job with a diverse range of students: 78% of Hawthorne students qualify for free or reduced lunch.

On a visit to Hawthorne, you’ll see motivated teachers and excited, curious learners engaged in dance, art, and drama. You might be lucky enough to see kindergartners releasing their class butterflies or 5th graders practicing for a school play.

Hawthorne also has a school library, but it’s not the one of our dreams. Outdated non-fiction teaches that Pluto is a planet, Ronald Reagan is president and that the Soviet Union still exists. High interest fiction is scarce and students often have long waits for their favorite Dora or Captain Underpants book. Lessons lack current technology and software that bring our students into the 21st century. But the Hawthorne Library Reimagination campaign seeks to change all that.

I am excited to be able to support my son’s school and help a lot of kids who aren’t as fortunate as our family is while I am at it. I would very much appreciate any support you give.

Hawthorne Elementary is dedicated to providing a quality and enriching education for all students.

Two and a half as many Hawthorne students passed the State WASL Reading Test in 2011 than in 2010.  Hawthorne Elementary seeks to keep that growth going by providing all of its students with access to rich literature, current non-fiction and relevant technology.
