The school year is off to a wonderful start. It is so great to have the children back in the building. Excitement is in the air as 675 students are ready to learn and grow with us. It was so great to see so many of you at Opening Activities. Thanks to the Family Alliance for planning a wonderful “BACK TO SCHOOL BASH”. It was so much fun to kick off our year bouncing on the moonwalks, building bridges to represent our Bernstein Masterwork (The Golden Gate Bridge), eating ice cream, and bonding with our Elementary South Family.
We had a great kick-off assembly to introduce our BERNSTEIN UNIT on MAKING CONNECTIONS. This year we will explore the importance of connecting with each other. Our masterwork – The Golden Gate Bridge, reminds us that a bridge is a structure that carries a pathway over an obstacle. We will challenge each Elementary South student to work together to overcome an obstacle this year! At that assembly, we reviewed our behavior code and bus expectations with all students in the building. Please make sure you review these documents with your child and sign that you support our founding behaviors of RESPECT AND RESPONSIBILITY. If you have not returned your code of conduct, please do so as soon as possible. It is important that we have 100% of our Hawthorn Elementary South family members supporting respect and responsibility in our school.

All the best,
