Have Coffee With the Superintendent 

As part of Superintendent, Dave Pruneau’s, ongoing pledge to make himself accessible to parents and community members, he will again be available for once-a-month coffees at different locations around the District. These informal “Coffee With the Superintendent” opportunities are being organized by the PTA Council and are open to any interested District 205 parent or community resident.

There will be no agenda during the approximate one hour conversation; coffee is sponsored by the PTA Council.

The Yearbook Needs Your Pictures!

Please start sending your beginning of the year pictures to Susan Smentek @ sirensinger@comcast.net . We're looking for smiling faces as well as kids in action from all grades from the Ice Cream Social, First Day (bus stop & neighborhood blocks may also be submitted), Hot Dog Lunch & student/teacher photos.  Any picture to help preserve a Hawthorne School memory can be submitted.
Quick requests & suggestions-  
1.  Label the student's name, teacher or grade when possible (it helps us try to get all kids/classes/grades in candid pictures)
2.  Send pictures with best best quality resolution option from newer cell phones or from cameras
3.  Send pictures with groups of students as well as your individual child (we try to avoid multiple pictures of the same single child)
4.  Send your favorite pictures (preferably no "bunny ears", closed eyes, blurry or silly faces- unless they can be cropped out)
More information about submitting yearbook photos is in the PTA locker.  2014-2015 Yearbooks can already be purchased at the PTA Webstore for $14.  
Thanks in advance for helping us make this yearbook special for all our Hawthorne students!
