The Amazing Shake at Hawthorne

The Amazing Shake is a competition started by Ron Clark at The Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, Georgia. The Amazing Shake at Hawthorne Elementary is a similar competition that emphasizes etiquette, communication, respect, manners, and poise under pressure. Students learn how to give a proper handshake, communicate effectively, introduce themselves, “work the room”, and remain composed under pressure. The goal is to prepare students for the future. We want to give students the ability to present themselves well in the many opportunities they may have today and in the future.
