Hawthorn takes school closings very seriously. Should schools close due to inclement weather or other unforeseen reasons, the district uses an automated emergency notification system to send a recorded voice message to each student’s home telephone number, as provided during registration. Parents have the option of managing their emergency notifications by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal to change telephone numbers, request text messaging, and request email messaging. For more information on how Hawthorn determines school closings, please click here.
Please join us on Wednesday, February 21, for an Evening with the Board to discuss Hawthorn’s space needs for today and tomorrow. At the meeting, we look forward to your advice and guidance as we work together to set the course for our school district’s future. The meeting will take place at Middle School South, 600 N. Aspen Drive in Vernon Hills at 7:00 p.m.
In light of recent events in Florida with another tragic school shooting, our sympathy and thoughts go out to the parents, staff, students and community of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. (Continued)
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, kindergarten students in Ms. Gitzinger’s class at the School of Dual Language are singing Te quiero (I love you in Spanish). Ms. Schaefges has taught the class a number of Valentine’s Day songs and the children are not only singing, they are playing instruments and dancing.
Join us for a night of family fun at Family Bingo Night on Friday, Feb.16th. All families are invited from 6:30-8:00 pm in the school gym.
Scholastic Winter Book Fair is Feb. 16-23. The PTO is introducing a great new way to get involved in our school and give back! As our PTO Book Fair approaches, we are collecting money to purchase more books for our school library and classrooms.
Each student brought home a small bag to fill with any loose change or dollars. We are asking that the money be returned by Thursday, Feb. 15th.
In addition, for every dollar we collect, Scholastic Book Fairs will send a book to one of the following nonprofit organizations: Kids in Distressed Situations Inc., and Kids in Need Foundation.
This is a 3-Way Win!
- Our school will purchase books with the money collected
- Our school earns profit from the money collected
- Students around the country will get books donated by Scholastic Books Fairs
There will be no 5th grade chorus tomorrow, Tuesday, 2/6.
Hawthorn School District 73 is inviting the community to attend an Evening with the Board on Wednesday, February 21, at 7:00 p.m. at Hawthorn Middle School South, 600 N.
