End of Year Wishes

We have less than a month left of school, and I can't believe it! This year sure has been a wild ride, but I am so grateful to have served alongside the Hawthorne staff to love and educate your children. We still have a lot of learning and fun to smash inside of the next three and a half weeks! But when the dust of the 20-21 school year settles, we're all wishing you and your family a summer to relax, recharge and reconnect.

Have a wonderful summer, and I can't wait to see you all again in the fall!

MAP Testing

MAP testing is officially upon us! Our third, fourth and fifth grade students will be testing these next few weeks to show off all of the amazing things they have learned. We are so proud of them every single day!

If you have questions about when your student will be taking the MAP test, please reach out to your child's teacher.

Final Call for Class Picture Orders!

Hawthorne Elementary Class Pictures are on sale for $7.00. If you would like to purchase one this year, you can order through Hawthorne's Webstore or fill out the attached order form and return it to school along with cash or check. Please make checks payable to Hawthorne Elementary.

Teacher Appreciation Week

We are celebrating our teachers this week and showing them how much they are appreciated! Be sure to take a moment to thank your child's teacher for all they do each and every day!

Charge Those Books!

We are seeing quite a few students arrive to school without their Chromebooks charged for the day. Please help remind your student to plug in their Chromebook overnight before school. A fully-charged Chromebook should last students throughout their school day!
