Principal’s Message

Dear Parents,

As Principal of Hawkinsville High School, I would like to welcome you to the Hawkinsville High School website. This website has been prepared in the hope that it will become a valuable resource for you and provide you with school news and information. This website has been developed to enable everyone to become familiar with our school, its policies, and other procedures.

Here at Hawkinsville High School, our staff set high academic standards for our students. Our staff works diligently to ensure that each student is working to his or her maximum ability. Hawkinsville High School, the Pulaski County Local School District and our Hawkinsville community have a common goal to do what is best for the students.

The handbook contains information that is important and useful. I urge you to read it thoroughly and thoughtfully. These guidelines are written to create an environment conducive to learning and a school where all feel safe and secure. The expectations for behavior written in our Code of Conduct are based on the essential value of respecting the rights and dignity of each other. Our school can continue to be an outstanding community when all adults treat all students with respect, when all students treat all adults with respect and when all students treat each other with respectful and responsible behavior. When all of us work together with everyone doing his or her part, we can truly make a difference. I will always encourage you to accept the challenge to be a model of respectful behavior.

Your high school years provide you with the wonderful opportunity to discover your unique talents and gifts. One way to learn is through the variety of clubs, organizations and teams that exist at Hawkinsville High School. There are outstanding athletic teams, musical programs, clubs, and academic groups that will help you to learn more about yourself and to develop friendships that may last a lifetime.

Take a chance by getting involved and trying something new. High school is unlike any other time in your life. Study hard, challenge yourself, set high goals and enjoy yourself. We are very fortunate to have a great school with great students and teachers. Make this time some of the most important and productive years of your life.
