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.

Science & Hobby Night

THIS THURSDAY (1/29), 7-8pm
All Hawthorne families are invited to attend this unique showcase featuring science and hobby exhibits created by more than 100 of our very own students!  What happens to a marshmallow in a vacuum chamber?  What makes a figure skater spin? How much Harry Potter trivia do you know?  How are snowflakes formed?  Plus, exhibits featuring Soccer, Lava Lamps, Squids, and so much more.  Which ones will be your favorites?
Come to Hawthorne this Thursday (7-8pm) to celebrate imagination and discovery and to cheer on the students who have created these wonderful projects!  For more info, visit the Science & Hobby Night webpage.

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!

Help Finish the Bottle Cap Mosaic!

The PTA Go Green Committee needs more plastic bottle caps to finish the three-panel mosaic that was started last spring during Earth Week. We need these colors: BLUES, GREENS, BROWNS, GRAYS, PURPLES & BLACK from milk jugs, beverage bottles - you name it! Please wash caps thoroughly in warm, soapy water. No nut butter caps please. A collection bin is in the main hallway.
