Hawthorn Spirit Week

Dear Hawthorn Elementary South Families,

Get ready to show your HAWTHORN PRIDE this week because it’s HAWTHORN SPIRIT WEEK!  Wear your Hawthorn gear and show your Eagle pride any way you wish this week!  Many families will be decorating their doors this week.  Decorate your front door to spread Hawthorn family spirit and get pumped for HAWTHORN PLAYS – our district wide FIELD DAY on MAY 29, 2020!  Post a picture on your social media with #HawthornDoorSpirit!   We can’t wait to see pictures of you showing your Hawthorn Pride!  Don’t forget to send any pictures to your teacher so we can add them to our Friday Video.

As you may remember, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) has provided school districts with a limited number of “Remote Learning Planning Days.” These days allow staff members to spend time engaging in structured training and planning sessions focused on remote learning. Our next REMOTE LEARNING PLANNING DAY is scheduled for FRIDAY, MAY 22nd. While live conferencing and other forms of “real-time” communication will not be available on these dates, teachers will post learning plans to support the continuation of routines and structures that help ensure students are learning and connected to school. 


As always, it is most important that you are HEALTHY and WELL.  Enjoy this week’s Social Emotional Corner from our Hawthorn Social Workers:

We hope you all have a wonderful week! As always, please do not hesitate to reach out if you need anything.


Dr. Martin and Mrs. Hunter
