Hawthorne has kicked off the Kids Heart Challenge!  Will you join the HEART HEROES and take THE CHALLENGE to be heart healthy?  American Heart Association has challenged our school to make a heart healthy pledge. If 50% or more of our students take the online challenge, the PE program will receive an additional $200 in gift certificates to purchase PE equipment. Register online at Hawthorne’s personal web page.

Hawthorne is promoting its annual “Jump Rope for Heart” event on February 27th and 28th. Event activities will take place during physical education class. Kids Heart Challenge activities reinforce the ways we can be heart healthy, be kind to others and help kids with special hearts. If you are available and would like to help at your student's event, please sign up here

Welcome to 2020. People in education get two opportunities to celebrate the “New Year,” so why not take advantage of it?!
