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

Dear Hawley Parents/Guardians, Teachers, and Staff,


We launched May with Teacher Appreciation Week, Cinco de Mayo, and May the 4th Be With You. We celebrated Moms and were teased with a little bit of nice weather. We have some great stuff coming up as we enter the final stretch of the year.


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 .....

~ Teacher Appreciation Week ~

Once again we are humbled by the show of appreciation. Our week began and ended with food (always a hit), the Breakfast Cart & Lunch. In between, we received plants, gift baskets, school supplies, and notes of appreciation.


Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!

~ COVID Cases ~

As I am sure you are aware, COVID cases are on the rise. Staff, students and families have all been affected (and infected). The COVID-19 Dashboard remains up on the District website to provide you current information. You can also Click HERE.

Important Reminders / General Info

  • Apple Watches are a wonderful item but a bit overwhelming for our age group. Students should not be texting home or video taping/taking pictures of other students. iphones are allowed if needed for after school contact, but need to be kept in backpacks. We can not be responsible for these items and they will be collected for parents to come pick up. Thank you for your understanding.
  • COVID tests are still available, please let us know if you need more
  • Now that we are having Volunteers back in the building, remember to be able to Volunteer, you need to fill out a Volunteer Waiver Form. They are available on our Website under Parent Resources on the very top bar (Click Here).

Out of the Mouths of Babes.....

Mr. M asked a student if they wanted to hear a Mother's Day joke and the student said sure, but actually had a better punchline than Mr. M.

" Why did mom's Mother's Day gift arrive the day after Mother's Day " asked Mr. M

" Why? " the student inquired

" It was choco-LATE " chuckled Mr. M

" Ah, funnier if you said that Dad ordered it LATE " the clever student quipped
