What's Happening ?? !!

~ Hawley School Newsletter: September 16, 2018 ~

From the Desk of Mr. Moretti

Dear Hawley Parents/Guardians,


The year continues to roll along despite some weather challenges (heat and rain). Although a shortened week, with a rained-out Ice Cream Social (new date 9/24), we had a successful Evacuation Drill and a Lock Down Drill, Picture Day was terrific, and exciting learning is all around.


I am excited for some face time this week with all of you during Open House, and for you to get to meet your child's teacher and learn more about the upcoming year.


Here's What's Happening at Hawley.......

Open Houses

Our Open Houses are THIS Week; Monday, 9/17 and Thursday, 9/20. The times are 6:30-7:00 in the gym and 7:00-8:00 in classrooms. My talk is the same both nights so you can arrive a little later the second night if you are attending both. No one will be able to go to classrooms until 7:00 PM. Parking is a luxury at Hawley so your use of Carluzzi's lot is recommended and appreciated.


Here is the breakdown of presentations:

  • Monday, 9/17: Grade 3, Grade 4, Mrs. Davies, Mrs Fries- (6:30-7:00 PM in the gym and 7:00-8:00 PM in classrooms)
  • Thursday, 9/20: Kindergarten (minus Mrs. Fries), Grade 1 (minus Mrs. Davies), Grade 2- (6:30-7:00 PM in the gym and 7:00-8:00 PM in classrooms)


Your understanding and support of the change of dates due to heat is appreciated

as we realize it may have created a hardship for some.

Morning Drop-Off Change Starting FRIDAY, 9/21/18.

The start of school is 9:05 AM. Students really should be unpacked, settled and in classrooms by 9:05 AM. All buses are here and gone by 8:55 AM. We have many students that are being dropped off at or after 9:05 AM.


Starting Friday, the back doors, with staff supervision, will close at 9:00 AM, even if cars are in line. Students arriving after that time will need to be brought in the main entrance and signed in by an adult. FYI- students arriving after 9:05 AM are marked late.


I thank you for your continued support of your child's education,

and as always, feel free to call me with any questions.

Out of the mouths of babes.....

Mr. M was visiting a kindergarten classroom. A sweet little angel gave him a hug and said, "Good Morning Mr. M."

Mr. M responded, "Good Morning"

The girl then asked, "Where is the door?"
"What door?" Mr. M inquired
"The one that lets you in the wall" the girl replied
"Why do you think I go in the wall?" a confused Mr. M asked
The girl pointed to the speaker and said, "Because that's where you say good morning from and the pledge and always talk out of."
