Buckle up, keep your hands and feet in the car at all times, and stay seated as you read on to find out What's Happening at Hawley .......

~ Breakfast with Top Summer Readers ~

Every summer students are asked to read. They record their reading and submit them as they return to school. Some go above and beyond. Those Top Readers are recognized and invited to a breakfast celebration. Congratulations to our Top Readers and Thank you to Mrs. Vitarelli and Mrs. Carlson for arranging.

~ Happy Custodians Day ~

We celebrated the Best of the Best for National Custodian's Day. Thank you Darren, Ryan, Ron and Don for all that you do for our School! You are greatly appreciated.

Pure Generosity!!!

A Hawley Family has made a substantial donation to our school out of the kindness of their heart. The money is being used to purchase Flexible Furniture in our Primary Grades (K now and grade 1 shortly). Our classrooms now have standing and sitting/kneeling tables, tall stools, wobble stools, floor cushions, rocking chairs and more. What a difference this act of generosity has made for our youngest learners.

On behalf of the staff and students of Hawley School, I thank you!!


  • Grade 3 is taking the OLSAT on October 15 and 17. Your student being rested, on time, and here all day (avoiding appointments) is greatly appreciated.
  • We have begun signing late students in and signing out those leaving school early, in the Main Office as opposed to at the Security Desk. Parents will still check in at the security desk before waiting in the office, but this change is to assure that the main office remains aware of students that are entering or leaving the building.

~ Funny Bones ~

I went to the store yesterday with my wife. We saw all of the below. My wife got very excited and I got very confused. That is why I should not go shopping with my wife ;0)

From the Mouth of Babes

Mr. M was approached at the Ice Cream Social by a School Newspaper reporter.

"What is your favorite ice cream" the reporter inquired

"Pistachio" Mr. M replied

"That's not an ice cream" a youngster laughed

"It's a Disney movie"
