Hawthorne Happenings

Week of 3/13 - 3/17

Hello all,

Here are the highlights from last week:

  • Kindergarten Round-Up - We had 114 new students come through our doors on Thursday and Friday. Things went pretty well. We tried some new things this year and Round Up seemed to go pretty smoothly. As always, we will continue to try new things in hopes of improving. Thank you to all of our staff who assisted in making this day a success! We are looking forward to seeing our Round Up students return in August.

Week of 3/13-3/17

March Madness Challenge

It's one of my favorite times of year again. It's time for the NCAA basketball tournament!!! Sadly, my Syracuse Orange did not make the cut this year. Regardless, the bracket challenge is always fun. Just like last year, let's have some friendly competition! I've attached the link to the printable March Madness bracket. If you would like to participate, please turn in your completed bracket into my mailbox by the end of the day Wednesday. The scoring goes as follows:

  • First Round wins - 1 pt
  • Second Round wins - 2 pts
  • Sweet Sixteen wins - 3 pts
