Letter: Staffers want their principal’s return (Dec. 14, 2022)


We, the staff of Hawthorne Elementary School, would like to take a moment to voice our concern regarding the recent removal of our administrator (principal) Debbie Philllips.

For the past two years Debbie has led all educational activities in our building as our principal. She has faithfully fulfilled her responsibilities to our students, our staff, and our community.

From the moment she entered Hawthrone Elementary School, Debbie used her seemingly endless energy and positive attitude to motivate and encourage all of us (students and staff) to bring forth our best effort.

As a collective staff, we have come to depend on her support and leadership to guide us through this challenging school year.

Debbie is a valued member of our team and we need her back in our building as soon as possible. She is an integral part of our professional existence.
