What's Happening??!!

~ Hawley Elementary School Newsletter: January 2, 2022 ~

From the Desk of Mr. Moretti.....

Dear Hawley Parents/Guardians, Teachers, and Staff,

I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season and Winter Break. We are still up against the virus as the new strain is more easily spread. Dr. Rodrigue and the District nurse will be sending out information regarding the return of school.

However, I thought before looking at what lies ahead, we could take a moment and look back at our terrific December.

Buckle up, stay seated, and keep your hands and feet in the car at all times, as you read on to find out What's Happening at Hawley .....

~ Happy New Year ~

PJ Day for Kids

I just wanted to share that we raised over $1,800 for Kids with Cancer (with a school goal of $400).

Thank you All for your generosity and support!

~ Kindness Month ~

Kindness Cart

The Kindness Cart is a tradition at Hawley. It visits each classroom full of books that discuss kindness and helping others. There is also Hot Chocolate and an activity showing our kindness in school as well as in the community.

The students created and we posted the 1 Act that everyone did. The Kindness grew like a vine....

From the Mouths of Babes.....

Big picture

It was PJ Day and Mr. M had on a Onesie set with feeties.

"I like your PJs" a student said to Mr. M

"Thank you" replied the Principal

"What is it they say?" inquired another youngster

"#1 DAD" answered Mr. M

To which another student replied, "Nah, I think my mom beats ya!"
