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. Aspen Drive in Vernon Hills, IL. The event will focus on how to solve the District’s present and future space needs. The event will include a presentation and an opportunity for community members to provide their feedback and advice to the Board of Education.
The school district is growing. Over the next 10 years, it is projected to welcome approximately 700 more students. By 2026, its enrollment will reach more than 5,000 students, representing a more than 30 percent increase since 2008. Hawthorn’s facilities have either been at capacity or above capacity for the past six years. Administrators have made numerous adaptations to manage space, including adding a portable containing two classrooms at Elementary South, and conducting gym in the cafeteria and hallways of the middle schools.
Childcare will be provided. Spanish translators will be present. If you need childcare, please register by February 19. Send an email to: email@example.com.

Fourth and fifth graders at Townline Elementary and the School of Dual Language received a special treat on January 11. World-renowned children’s book author Ann M. Martin spoke with them about the many books she has written. Librarian Cathy Gross asked her a series of questions about her writing and what inspired her to become an author. The students also asked questions. Ms. Martin is known for “The Baby-Sitters Club” series and other books for children and young adults.
