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.
The School of Dual Language held a spelling bee on Jan. 16 for students in third through fifth grade. Students with the highest classroom spelling test scores participated. They all did a great job spelling tough words. After many rounds, Andrea P. won by spelling the word hibiscus. Congratulations to Andrea and to Sean G., who came in second place, and Gabi S. who came in third.
Students, parents and teachers across Illinois have an opportunity to participate in the seventh annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey between now and Feb. 15. The survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your student’s school and gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes. Additionally, Hawthorn District 73 has chosen to provide the optional Parent Supplemental survey. Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand the conditions at your student’s school and guide improvement. To take the survey, please visit the 5Essentials Survey webpage and select the appropriate survey to begin.
Mrs. Del Rosario, an art teacher at the School of Dual Language, taught her second grade students about the American artist Wayne Thiebaud. Associated with the pop art movement, he is widely known for his colorful works depicting commonplace objects such as pies and pastries. Afterwords, she had her students draw desserts, such as cupcakes, in a way that reflected his style.
All K-5 students will be participating in a jump rope unit in their physical education classes during the week of February 4th, 2019. In conjunction with this jump rope unit, we will be participating in a fundraiser benefiting the American Heart Association (Kids Heart Challenge).
