Hawthorne Happenings

Week of 2/13 - 2/17

Hello all,

Another great week is behind us. Here are some highlights from the last week:

  • End of the FAST window - On Friday, the FAST window closed. We did have a 1% increase in overall proficiency from fall to wInter. We will review some of this data at Tuesday's staff meeting.
  • Book Fair - Our second Scholastic Book Fair seems to have been a success. Thank you to everyone who assisted with the setup and breakdown this past week.
  • Sweetheart Tea - We had a large turnout for our Sweetheart Tea. There was music, treats, and opportunity to mingle with our community. Thank you to the kindergarten team for bringing back this activity after a six year absence. Thank you to our staff for being flexible and changing up your schedules and routines.

Valentine's Day Parties - 2/14

Happy Valentine's Day ! I am looking forward to the Valentine's Day parties on Tuesday. Our students always have a good time and our parent volunteers come up with some great ideas. It's always nice to have our community come in and share in our festivities!

Amy Thacher PRESS materials review - 2/15

For those who went to the PRESS training and are piloting the PRESS materials, Amy Thacher will be here on Wednesday to meet with you as a review and help guide your decision making. If you have been hearing about these PRESS materials and would like to be part of the pilot, please let me know and we can schedule some time to meet with Amy Thacher as well.

Spring Pictures - 2/16

On Thursday, pictures will be held in the gym. If you have not signed up for a picture time please do so on the counter in the office.
