The annual Illinois 5Essentials Survey is administered online by the University of Chicago, on behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education. The State will only provide survey results for individual schools if a school has at least 20 percent of parents take the survey. If you have children attending more than one school, District 205 asks that you complete the survey for each school. Each survey takes about ten minutes. All survey responses will be kept confidential.
Thank you in advance for your participation in supporting our schools' continuous improvement process. The survey will remain open until March 11, 2016.
Calling ALL district 4-8 graders to participate in a fun and interactive program with Mike Byster- March 3, 2016, Bryan Middle School Auditorium 7pm.
Help Wanted! Our plastic collection for Trex is going strong. The amount of plastic film that Hawthorne is diverting from landfills is impressive and overwhelming, around 50 pounds per week!
I'm looking for a few parents to transport bags one time or each week to Jewel so we can continue this collection through April. One parent has volunteered but if there are more, we can rotate weekly. The bags will be ready for you to load in your car before school, at lunch, or after school. Then simply take them to Jewel-- the workers know all about our big plastic 'drops' as I have been bringing bags to the back loading area after I check in with them at customer service.
Please let me know if you can help (best day/time) and I'll get a calendar organized. Thanks! - Geri Sorrentino (firstname.lastname@example.org)
By reducing, reusing, and recycling plastic bags, you and your child can help reduce litter, prevent pollution, and save natural resources. Instead of bringing your clean plastic bags (and other items listed above) to Jewel or Kohl's to recycle, please bring them to Hawthorne through April 2016 so we can weigh them in bulk and get credit for collecting them while keeping them out of landfills.

The cooler temperatures have told the 3rd graders that it is time to harvest the vegetables and herbs that they planted last spring when they were 2nd graders. Their eyes popped out when they saw the size of the carrots that had grown from a very tiny seed! The vegetables will now become a hearty vegetable soup for them to enjoy. Special thanks to the 2nd and 3rd grade teachers that work so hard to make this special literature adventure possible!
October 13th was a cool and cloudy day, but excitement was in the air as it was the day for dedicating our Sharing Library in the Outdoor Classroom. Student Council President Jack Burns shared words of thanks on behalf of all the children at Hawthorne. Vice-President Evan Montella was the Master of Ceremonies. He introduced the 3rd and 5th grade student reps as they shared poetry about libraries and books. The Hawthorne Girl Scouts shared a Flag Ceremony with everyone. Secretary Emma Coyte and Treasurer Will Fischer presented the builder of the library, Amanda Strezo, will a small thank you gift. Dr. Moyer and many of Amanda's teachers from Hawthorne were at the ceremony to congratulate her on this wonderful accomplishment and gift to Hawthorne. We all look forward to enjoying the library for years to come.
Just last week, Mrs. Engbers had the kindergartners and their 4th grade buddies from Mr. Rufus' room out in the classroom observing the changes that are happening because it is FALL! How fun to be able to outside and view a variety of changing leaves, seed pods and maybe even some Outdoor Classroom insect residents.
