School Supplies Made Easy!
It's time to start thinking about next year's Back to School Shopping! Look for order forms for the 2019-2020 School Supply Kits that came home in your child's backpack. Make it easy on yourself while supporting Hawthorne's PTA by letting us do the work for you! Carlson's (only the framing and art supply portion of their business is closing so they can expand their school supply area) will assemble the kits, deliver them to the PTA, and they'll be ready at your child's classroom when school starts in August. For a hassle-free first day of school next August, return payment and the completed form with your child's information for the upcoming school year to the office in an envelope marked School Supply Kits. Orders and payment must be received by (next week) Friday, May 10th. Feel free to email Melissa Johnson at email@example.com with questions. If you decide to purchase school supplies on your own, please have your child bring the supplies on the first day of school next August.
It's time to order your yearbooks if you haven't done so already! They cost $11.99 each. Order online: www.treering.com/validate and use School Code: 101515708176509
Also,please send your pictures you'd like included in the yearbook directly to firstname.lastname@example.org - you can email individual images, use google drive, dropbox, facebook messenger, whatever works for you! Please make sure they are clearly labeled with the activity and grade of students. Thank you!
