From the Desk of Mr. Moretti

Dear Hawley Parents/Guardians,


I hope that you all had a wonderful, restful and fun Spring Recess. Believe it or not, we are entering the final stretch; Wow!


Here's What's Happening at Hawley.......


  • BoE has voted on End of Year Schedule: Last Days of School (for students): Wed, 6/20. The last 3 days, 6/18-6/20 are Early Dismissals (1:37 PM).
  • Special PTA General Meeting: THURSDAY, 4/26, 9:30-10:30 AM- Click HERE for agenda.
  • STEAM Night: Hawley STEAM Night is this Thursday evening, 6:00-7:30 PM. This is an opportunity for students and parents exclusively in Grade 3 and Grade 4 to explore the fun and wonder of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math). Students rotate through stations with their parents and engage in hands-on activities! Click HERE if you want to RSVP: still some room.
  • REMINDER 1: If you are picking up a child early for an appointment, please wait in the main office (not the lobby) after signing in. Thank You-
  • REMINDER B ;0): As our weather improves, I want to remind you that if you are walking home with a student(s), they are considered pick-ups and should be met at the gym doors not in the lobby. Walkers, by BoE Policy are students that leave the campus unattended by an adult.

Out of the Mouths of Babes......

Remember, the only kids I was around this week were my own.


"Oh, it is a shame that you all have work and school this week" teased Mr. M

"Well, don't forget the playroom needs painting and the gardens need bark chips" reminded Mrs. M

"and my car needs an oil change" added Brendan

"but it's my vacation, why don't you just add more things to do" complained Mr. M

"You can clean my room." yelled Sean from upstairs
