Hawthorne PTA Calendar
PTA Meeting ~ "How is Discipline Addressed at Hawthorne?"
Join us on September 17th at 6:30 pm in the Hawthorne library for the first PTA meeting of the year!
Mrs. Tammaru will explain the CHAMPS/PBIS program at Hawthorne; how cubes, pennies, minors, majors, and homework sheets are used to address issues, and how good behavior is encouraged and rewarded. Mrs. Nissen, the Social Worker at Hawthorne, will show us ways that we can use these same concepts to promote good behavior at home.
Speaker Dr. Michael Thompson ~ "The Pressured Child"
September 28th, 7 - 8:30 pm, Sandburg Middle School
The Pressured Child is, in fact, a presentation for "pressured parents" who have forgotten what school is actually like. It is a talk for parents who are gripped by worries and misapprehensions about their children’s life in school.
In the presentation, Dr. Thompson describes the psychological journey that children experience during their thirteen years in school. He reminds parents that children are almost never judging themselves by grades: they are always monitoring their own development and constantly searching for three things: connection, recognition and a sense of power. He illustrates how children find those in many different arenas of school life.
