What's Happening??!!

~ Hawley School Newsletter: February 28, 2021 ~

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

Dear Hawley Parents/Guardians, Teachers, and Staff,

It has been a while. Why? Well, Remote Days and Snow Days and Half Days, Oh My! Quaran... Never Mind, you get it.

Happy New Year, MLK B-Day, Groundhog's and Valentine's Days!

OK, all caught up.... Well, we are BACK and here to show you (since you still can't come in ;0(

that we are still Learning, Laughing, Smiling and Rockin' School!

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 .......

Traffic Guard

As you know, we have a Traffic Guard on Church Hill Road before and after school. He assists buses and cars to get in and out of the parking lot safely as well as helping students crossing the street.

It is imperative that drivers watch him for signals to stop, wait and proceed. Cars driving around other cars or turning on their own puts others in danger.

Your patience and cooperation are greatly needed and appreciated.

Hero Squad

Please help us raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help fight blood cancer. This program, formerly known as Pennies for Patience, is something we do every year around this time. Students normally collect change or do odd jobs and raise money. This year with COVID Restrictions, it is all online.

Your support is greatly appreciated!!

~ Counselor's Resources ~

Our school counselor (Mrs. Shapiro) has created an interactive virtual office space for the students to explore and use whenever they would like.

It contains different slides and the items in the rooms have links that can be clicked to bring up different resources such as:

  • Read Alouds
  • Videos
  • A form to submit a note of thanks to any staff member
  • A check-in request form for students that want to meet with the counselor.

In addition, if any parent would like to request a 1:1 Google Meet session between their child and Mrs. Shapiro, you can complete this check-in sign up form. Parents can also email Mrs. Shapiro with questions or concerns (shapirok@newtown.k12.ct.us).
