From the Desk of Mr. Moretti

Dear Hawley Parents/Guardians,

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

  • This Friday, 10/6, is a 2-hr Delayed Opening for Teacher Professional Development. School will begin at 11:05 AM. Buses will pick up students 2 hours after regular times. Student drop-off will be 10:45-11:05 AM. No student will be able to enter the building before 10:45 AM as there is no supervision for them. EdAdvance will open at 7:00 AM.
  • Friday, 10/6, is the PTA Indoor Movie Night. Baby Boss will be shown. Doors open at 6:00 PM, Movie starts at 6:30 PM (click here for more information).
  • Friday, 10/20 is Hawley Spirit Wear Day- make sure your child(ren) has their Spirit Wear to show their school spirit. See information below to order.
  • 11/14 will be Picture Re-Take Day.
  • Many parents ask teachers and the office for class lists and/or student contact information for play dates and parties. We are unable to provide this information due to FERPA laws. The PTA Directory is best for this situation.

~Substitute Music Teacher ~

We have had a difficult time finding the right Music Teacher. The candidate must be dynamic, personable, collaborative, and have strong rapport with students. We will continue our search.

In the meantime- Brett Boles has signed on to substitute. Brett is a graduate of Newtown Schools as well as an award winning musical theater composer and lyricist that has spent years working with children. He is able to substitute while he continues to pursue his teaching certification. He began today.

Please join me in welcoming Brett and thanking him for helping us out. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Life Threatening Allergies (Food in Schools section) Policy Update

The BoE is revisiting its policy for clarity. In the meantime, we will be operating following the below guidelines:
  • No Food for birthday celebrations
  • Food can be at classroom/school celebrations with healthy options and only approved options in identified allergy rooms.
  • After school activities will not take place in identified allergy rooms so snack will be permitted.

Should any further changes arise, I will let you know.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.

"That is a great picture." Mr. M told a 2nd grader

"Thank you." the happy youngster replied

"I like your pets." added Mr. M

"That's my dog." the boy shared

"And this?" inquired Mr. M

"My sister's cat. Do you have pets?" asked the boy


"Want a cat?"
