The renovation and addition on Hawthorne Elementary School included the creation of seven new classrooms, additional bathrooms, and an elevator to bring accessibility to all areas of the school. The two-story addition provides permanent classrooms for educational functions that had previously been performed in shared or temporary spaces. The lunchroom and food service area have moved from the basement to a brighter, more dynamic, functional space on the first floor. One of the primary objectives was to relocate the main office from deep within the school to a new, more secure public entry. Technology and HVAC systems have been upgraded along with site features like sidewalks, access components, and green space.
