December 2017 Newsletter

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends.  As we move into the holiday season, it reminds us all how fortunate we are to have such a caring community.  I want to thank you all for attending parent-teacher conferences, as well as three hundred and fifty visitors to the building during our National Education Week visitation.  We appreciate all you do to support children at home, and we thank you for joining our partnership in “Inspire all students to embrace learning in a ever-changing world.”

This year our Bernstein Unit is focused on Growth Mindset and the understanding that I may not be able to do it, YET, but with hard work and dedication, I can get there.   On Dec 21st, the whole school will watch Finding Nemo and/or Finding Dori.  These two movies remind us to “just keep swimming” to reach our goals.  We will have classroom discussions on Growth Mindset and make connections to the movie.  Nemo is rated G and Dory is rated PG and we were planning to give children choice as to which movie they view so if you do not want your child to watch the movie, please contact your child’s teacher.  An alternate activity will be planned for those who do not wish to have their child participate.

November also brought out our Art Adventure volunteers and we had a wonderfully successful Book Fair. Thanks to all the parents who volunteered for both activities.  As always, we are working hard to improve our reading, writing and math skills!

Now that December has arrived, please remember that if it is above 10 degrees including wind chill, we will be going outside.  Please have your child dress for the fresh, crisp air.

Thank you again for your continued support.  As always, if you have any questions or input, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail me.  I can be reached at martinj@hawthorn73.org or (847) 990-4800.

Wishing you a happy, healthy holiday season!

All the best,

Clarification About Today’s Drill

As you know, Hawthorn District 73 schedules drills throughout the year to ensure our schools are prepared for emergencies and other events. This morning a drill took place at Townline Elementary and the School of Dual Language. While a parent posted on Facebook that this was an actual lockdown, this was only a drill. While we encourage community engagement on our Facebook page, please contact the school prior to posting information about events such as drills to ensure the information on our Facebook page is correct.

Como usted sabe, el Distrito Hawthorn #73 programa simulacros durante el año escolar para asegurar que nuestras escuelas estén preparadas para emergencias y otros eventos. Esta mañana se llevó a cabo un simulacro en la Escuela Elemental Townline y en la Escuela de Lenguaje Dual. Un padre publicó en Facebook que se trataba de un cierre de emergencia real, esto fue solo un simulacro. Nosotros alentamos la participación de la comunidad en nuestra página de Facebook, por favor antes de publicar información sobre eventos, comuníquese con la escuela para garantizar que la información en nuestra página de Facebook sea correcta.

November Birthday Bash

Students with birthdays during the month of November celebrated in the cafeteria with Dr. Martin at the Birthday Bash on November 17th.

Growth Mindset Decorations Enliven the Hallways

When parents arrive for parent-teacher conferences, they will see hallways filled with decorations. To keep the growth mindset alive at Elementary South, the school held a door decoration contest. Students researched growth mindset quotes and created door decorations using the quotation themes.  STAR Team members judged the decorations.

Hawthorn Enrichment Institute

Save the Dates for the 2018 Hawthorn Enrichment Institute

The Hawthorn Enrichment Institute summer program is open to all kindergarten through eighth-grade Hawthorn District 73 students. It will take place from July 9 – August 10, 2018.  Registration begins February 1, 2018.

American Education Week

Elementary South Observes American Education Week

Elementary South invited parents to visit the classrooms of their children in observance of American Education Week, Nov. 13 to 17. The students were excited to work on projects alongside their parents.

Do you know the history behind American Education Week? Representatives of the National Education Association and the American Legion met in 1919 to seek ways to generate public support for education after the recognition that so many WWI draftees were illiterate. They adopted resolutions for a national effort to raise public awareness of the importance of education. The first observance of American Education Week was in 1921.
