FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Happy Friday Hawkins Families,
We not only survived the first full week, we thrived!. It was just wonderful with so much excitement. As I walk the building and stop in classrooms, I am so happy with what I am seeing. We have truly put together a staff that meets all of your children’s needs.
I thought we had an amazing Curriculum Night. It was nice to give families the opportunity to tour the building, and meet your child’s teacher. I enjoyed talking with so many of you. Morning drop off and pick up continues to get smoother each day. Please do not hesitate to offer suggestions. The office staff has been getting lots of emails and calls about transportation, I would encourage you to reach out to transportation directly.
The Color Run is fast approaching! This event is Hawkins main fundraiser and helps to fund the entire 22-23 school year’s activities. With the generous donations from the Hawkins community, we are able to fund enrichment activities, assemblies, learning programs, field day, Trunk or Treat, field trips and much, much more! To raise the level of excitement for Hawkins students, I am adding the incentive that if we reach our goal I will wear MSU gear to school. I thought sleeping on the roof last year was tough…lol. As our weather starts to turn, please make sure you are checking what your child wears to school, we want to make sure they are prepared and comfortable for recess.
I am excited for the weekend. My daughter, who has been dancing in Alaska, will be home in the morning and will be going to the Michigan game with my wife and other two daughters. It will be the first time we have been together in a long time. I want to thank you again for a wonderful start to the year. We have truly been a Hawkins Family working together for a common good. Your ideas, suggestions, criticisms, patience and support have made this the start to a year I am so excited about. Have a great weekend. Go Blue!
