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.

Beginning July 29, 2019, Elmhurst District 205 began to use a new online payment system called PushCoin. Parents and guardians of D205 students will be able to fund their students’ lunch accounts. Parents and guardians of York students will be able to pay their high school fees through PushCoin, in addition to funding their students' lunch accounts.

Mark your calendar, get your costumes ready, and plan a family night out to support your school! Hawthorne Happening – A Nightmare on Arthur Street 2 – is on Saturday, October 19th from 4 - 7 pm at Hawthorne! Carnival-style games, music from DJ Mike, a creepy reptile show, balloon twisters, mobile escape room, raffles and auction items, allergy-free concessions, and so much more!  

Hawthorne Happening is the school's biggest fundraiser, which helps support all the fun and important “extras” the PTA sponsors.
