A newsletter from Hawthorne School and the PTA
What a Great Year!
Thank you for a wonderful year, and for your continued partnership and support of our school. It is because of supportive families like yours that help make our school such a wonderful place to learn and grow. As I reflect on the year, I am grateful for the numerous volunteers, our Hawthorne PTA, the Student Excellence Foundation, and the partnerships we've created with community organizations, especially World Relief, Wheaton College, and our friends at Highpoint Church, who continue to support our programs by offering their gifts, time, and talents to our students and school. Our school couldn't be "The Little School with the Big Heart" without all that contribute.
I'd also like to give a very special thank you to our Hawthorne staff. I am blown away each day by what our amazing teachers and support staff members accomplish with our students! The academic and social/emotional growth our students have shown is evidence that good teaching, supportive families, and perseverance are the keys to success. Thank you to our teaching and support staff, for caring for our students each day, and for dedicating their time to ensuring each and every child is achieving!
Finally, I'd like to wish you all a wonderful, safe, and fun summer. Enjoy family time together, make many memories, and spend time with one another. These are the times to savor, before the little ones are grown, and before you begin thinking about planning for that first car or college visit. Have an amazing summer, and I look forward to hearing all about it when we are back in August!
Danielle Moran, Principal
Thank You, Friends at Highpoint Church
