Cultural Fest Reflection

Friday, November 6th, was the first district cultural night of the year hosted by the School of Dual Language’s Cultural Committee.  Over 15 different countries, cultures or traditions were represented, which consisted of presentations of traditional food, clothing, informational posters with pictures and music.  Some families chose to work on their own culture or tradition, while others volunteered to work with another group and learn about other cultures as well.  The students filled up their “passport” and enjoyed visiting all the different countries and traditions!

Viernes, 6 de noviembre, fue la primera noche cultural del distrito para este año  escolar patrocinada por el Comité Cultural del Lenguaje Dual.  Más de 15 diferentes países, culturas o tradiciones fueron representados, consistiendo en presentaciones de comidas tradicionales, ropa, cartelones informativos con fotos y música.  Algunas familias eligieron trabajar en su propia cultura o tradición, mientras que otras fueron voluntarias para trabajar con otro grupo y de esta manera aprender sobre las otras culturas.  Los estudiantes completaron sus “pasaportes” y disfrutaron visitar todos los diferentes países y tradiciones.

 

Safety First

Dear Parents,

Hawthorn District 73 was informed recently of a bus safety concern regarding the railroad crossing on Butterfield Road south of Illinois Route 60.

By law, school buses must stop at all railroad crossings, then the driver must open the door and get a visual of the tracks to be sure the tracks are clear of any trains.  This particular railroad crossing is located close to a curve in the tracks and bus drivers must creep forward to visually view the tracks.  Bus drivers can do this without being on the tracks but it is not an ideal situation.  Hawthorn District 73 is committed to the safety of all our students and is working with the Village of Vernon Hills, our police resource officer, and our busing company, Lakeside Transportation in reevaluating this crossing.

Sincerely,

Nick Brown
Hawthorn Superintendent of Schools

 

PARCC Update

Hawthorn, along with all districts in Illinois, is waiting for the state to provide us with specific information regarding our students’ performance on the PARCC assessments.  We will keep our community posted on this issue as information becomes available to us.

En caso de una emergencia

El invierno se acerca y el personal de Hawthorn quiere asegurarse de que podamos hacer contacto en caso de una emergencia.

 

Para el cierre de escuelas u otras emergencias que suceden fuera de las horas normales de la escuela, Hawthorn Distrito 73 utilizará el sistema SchoolMessenger para llamar al número de teléfono de hogar del estudiante y enviara un correo electrónico a los padres. Además, los padres pueden optar por recibir mensajes de texto para estas notificaciones. La información en el archivo para su estudiante puede ser visto a través del Portal de Padres PowerSchool en la página SchoolMessenger. Si usted necesita cambiar su dirección de correo electrónico o número de teléfono del estudiante, por favor póngase en contacto con la oficina de la escuela de su hijo.

 

Para emergencias que suceden durante el día escolar, el personal de Hawthorn, a discreción del superintendente, utilizara el sistema SchoolMessenger para llamar/mandar correo electrónico/texto a todos los números de contacto y direcciones de correo electrónico en los archivos del distrito.

 

Para agregar números de teléfono de emergencia adicionales y recibir mensajes de texto, por favor, siga las instrucciones para configurar las preferencias de notificación del sistema del distrito de llamada de emergencia ~  https://docs.google.com/document/u/1/pub?id=1_somXYbq3QMqVHPU5n1X1UDfzMAhx_lbH0CKbp0S-8M
