Artist in Residence

Hawthorne Alt. School gives our thanks to the Education Foundation of Pendleton, for the Spring Grant 2016. This grant of $1547.00 gives students the opportunity to create wire sculptures that replicate bronze sculptures. Under the guidance of Jan Peterson-Terjeson our students will study techniques such as 3-dimensional design, art media, elements of principles design, and develop technique skills of 3D visual problem solving. Upon completion of the sculptures they will be presented at the Pendleton School District's Art show in April.

Healthy Teen Survey

In February, Hawthorne students participated in the Oregon Healthy Teens Survey (OHT). The survey was sponsored be the Oregon Health Authority Public Health Division and the Oregon department of Education. The survey helps gather information about health risk behaviors of students. The survey includes questions about nutrition, physical activity, tobacco, alcohol, drug use, personal safety and violence related behavior, HIV knowledge, mental health, suicide, harassment, sexual risk behavior/attitudes, and interactions with peers, adults, school staff, and community members that influence youth well-being. This information will assess common trends and challenges Pendleton youth face, allowing us to better respond to student needs.

A few Hawthorne students are taking advantage of a brief sunny day in February to enjoy lunch on the patio. The view is fantastic!
