From the Principal's Desk

Hello! This year is Townline's first year as a neighborhood school and we have welcomed well over 120 new families. We are looking forward to getting to know each and every one. There is an abundance of information available on the District website at www.hawthorn73.org including lunch menus, parent quick links and calendars. Please make yourself familiar with this great resource.

Don't forget that Attendance Week is September 15-18. Be sure you come to school everyday and let's put Townline in the "Top 10 Schools" in Lake County. If we win, I'll wear a Bears' jersey to school because, as you know, I love the Green Bay Packers!

With Team Townline Pride,

Dr. Kieffer

Dinner Discussions

Dinner Discussions are designed for families to engage in meaningful conversations. The goal is for families to discuss questions learning more about harmony in our world. These questions are connected to the Bernstein Artful Learning school-wide unit on HARMONY. Each month, a question will be sent home for your family to discuss. In addition, an activity will be suggested for your family to engage in together. If your family completes the activity, your child can complete the slip attached to each month’s Dinner Discussion and turn it into their homeroom teacher by the end of the month to be entered into a school-wide raffle. Winners will be chosen each month to receive a fun Townline prize! Thank you for your support of artful learning.
