Pendleton Early Learning Center (PELC)
The old Hawthorne Elementary School is being completely modernized to become the Pendleton Early Learning Center (PELC). It will house all Pendleton School District Kindergarten classes as well as numerous other family and early childhood services. Having all these services at one location will be more efficient and will provide better service to the families in our community. The original footprint of the building is being expanded to just over 52,000 square feet. For the first time, off-street parking and bus loading/unloading areas will be provided for greater safety and convenience. Work on the PELC began in the summer of 2014, and the facility will be ready for the 2015/2016 school year.
