Hawthorne renovations completed in time for new school year
September 12, 2018
Hawthorne Elementary School has some 70 new faces this year, but the biggest of them belongs to the school itself.
Sweet Home School District completed a sweeping facelift and other improvements just in time for school to start on Sept. 4. Gerding Construction completed a school-wide seismic upgrade while district maintenance staff members remodeled the entrance and office.
"It exceeded my expectations," said Supt. Tom Yahraes. "In meeting with the staff eight months ago, the staff talked about how providing natural light was important for the learning environment."
