Hawthorne Happenings

Week of 3/27-3/31

Hello all,

Here are the highlights from last week:

  • Show Choir performance - Once again, the show choir put on a great performance!! I really felt that our students were a great audience! As I looked around the auditorium, our students were clapping along, singing, and really enjoying themselves. If you have not already, please acknowledge your students for being such a good representation of Hawthorne.
  • Snowball Tournament - Thank you PBIS team for organizing the Snowball tournament schedule and event. Although our teachers are no longer undefeated after getting it handed to us by the 3rd graders, the students had lots of fun.
  • P/T Conferences - Thank you for your time on Tuesday. It was a long day, but well worth it. We had a pretty good turnout with parents. I hope you appreciate the opportunity to share your students' learning and progress with their parents. It's an opportunity that many times escapes us and parents are always happy to hear it.

Week of 3/27-3/31
