From the Principal

Dear Valued Members of Our Community,
 
Welcome to the PEARLS Hawthorne School website!  We hope that you find the information posted to be both informative and useful.
 
Each school year brings many rewards, excitement, and challenges; and this year will prove to be no different.   We look forward to partnering with our community members in working together to foster a school culture that takes pride in the development of the whole child, meaning: helping each child reach his/her potential in the academic, social, emotional, and physical aspects.  Your engagement as partners in this endeavor is instrumental in us reaching our goals. 
 
Below is one of my favorite quotes that I feel powerfully exemplifies my philosophy as an Educational Leader.
 
Resonant leaders know when to be collaborative and when to be visionary, when to listen and
when to command.  Such leaders have a knack for attuning to their own sense of what
 matters and articulating a mission that resonates with the values of those they lead. 
These leaders naturally nurture relationships, surface simmering issues, and create the human
synergies of a group in harmony. -   Primal Leadership, by Daniel Goleman
 
Thank you for visiting and if you seek addition information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
   
Sincerely,
Marwan Sayegh
