Reading logs will be coming home in your child's backpack this week. This is a free program that allows a student to earn a ticket to Six Flags Great America just by reading six hours of fun! NEW THIS YEAR-  you will register your child online with the school code (info in backpack) and log all the hours directly on the website!  Hours need to be logged on the site by February 1st. Then, when the tickets are released in early May, you can print your own Six Flags tickets! For anyone who has limited access to the internet, feel free to write the hours on the log and turn them into your teacher and the hours will be logged for you.  Email Kathleen Grossardt with any questions.  

Hawthorne will be collecting Holiday Lights for SCARCE!  If you have any lights that are no longer working, please deposit them in the bags located in the front entrance.

For many, Thanksgiving is officially the start to the holiday season. For others, the holidays begin as early as Labor Day or Halloween or the Hallmark Channel’s marathons. For me, it is definitely Thanksgiving.

The statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey is now open for parents to share thoughts about your experiences with our school. This survey provides critical input to help develop school improvement plans. The survey takes about 10 minutes.Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. 

On September 3 and September 5, 2019, Elmhurst District 205 hosted three informational meetings about the upcoming integration of all-day kindergarten. If you were not able to attend one of those sessions, but would still like the information that was presented, the presentation is now available online.
