BACK TO SCHOOL SOCIAL and SCHOOL SUPPLY PICK UP
Mark your calendars and please join us on August 17, 2016, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm to enjoy cool treats and catch up with your Hawthorne friends. Siblings are welcome to join in the fun too. More details to follow!
You will be able to pick up your school supplies in the Old Gym during this time as well.
Teachers will be available 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm to meet parents and students.
CHANGE IN POSTING OF CLASS LISTS
Due to privacy and security concerns, District 205 elementary schools will no longer be posting the traditional class lists on the front door of the school in August. Instead, parents will receive a secure email document informing them of each of their child(ren)'s placement for 2016-17on Friday, August 11th. For families that do not have email, a first-class letter will be mailed to the home address on file providing this information. You will not receive a letter if you have not proven residency for the 2016-2017 school year.
