In response to Erin’s Law (House Bill 6193), which requires all public schools to implement a prevention-oriented child sexual abuse program, Hawthorn District 73 is hosting the Be Seen and Heard©assembly program for all elementary students during the second week in December. This assembly is designed to create an age-appropriate, safe, and engaging environment in which students learn the difference between safe and unsafe touch, and the importance of having trusted heroes. Please see this bulletin (English or Español) for additional details about the Be Seen and Heard© program.
Are you interested in learning more about the Be Seen and Heard© program? Hawthorn District 73 and the Hawthorn P.T.O. invite parents from all District 73 elementary schools to attend an informational meeting prior to our student assembly programs.

Please see this invitation (English or Español) for details. Many thanks are extended to the Hawthorn P.T.O for their partnership in hosting this special parent event!
