2022 Scholastics Art & Writing Awards Submission Window Closes
While conducting the searches, we found several students that had over the counter medication. Please remind your students they are not allowed to have medications such as Midol, Tylenol, and Ibuprofen. If your child needs medication, please complete a medication form in the front office.
As always, if you hear of a school threat, please let admin know immediately. It takes ALL of us working together to keep ALL students safe at Hawk Nation. ~ Ms. Humphreys, Principal
High School Transition Night

The submission window closes at 11:59PM on Friday, December 10th! This regional affiliate of the national Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is our district's largest celebration of our visual art students and their work. This is also the best way to connect your student artists with college scholarship opportunities to continue their studies after high school! Each year, DCPS art students earn MILLIONS of dollars in college scholarship offers through this program! Students can enter their original works digitally through this website and within 17 different art categories.
