Dear Hawley Parents/Guardians,

It has been a great (and busy) 2 weeks. A terrific Ice Cream Social, a PTA and Fathers Club Meeting, some field trips, fun activities, hard work and smiles.

The change in drop off time (from 9:05 to 9:00) has been terrific, students are in classrooms and lovin' it. Thank you for your support.

TOMORROW is Hawley Spirit Day (so deck out in your Hawley Wear)

Out of the mouths of babes.....

Mr. M was in the cafe and asked, "How is the pizza?"

"Very good" the first student replied

"I don't eat pizza" shared another student
Why?" asked Mr. M

"I am lactose intolerant" the student answered

"What's that?" asked the first student

A third student chimed in "I'm not sure but I think it has to do with his feet" (Lack-Toes)
