For Monday’s Aprendiendo Jugando (Learning While Playing) party, teachers at the School of Dual Language gave up some of their time after school one day to wrap the hundreds of gifts that generous families donated to make the holidays a little more special for the AJ students.
Fourth and fifth grade students who volunteered to be part of the Project Change program enjoyed the opportunity to give back to the community. Early in the morning of December 5, approximately 50 students went from floor to floor at Townline and the School of Dual Language, collecting boxes of nonperishable food items and supplies, such as toothpaste and pancake mix, from approximately 38 classrooms. They piled the items into a truck bound for the Sharing Hands Food Pantry. The items will go to community members in need. Many thanks to all the families at both schools that provided items for the food drive, which began in mid-November.
Last week, Ms. Korn’s second grade class at the School of Dual Language learned about habitats. They worked together on collages and learned about the characteristics of habitats around the world.
The 2019-2020 yearbook will be on sale December 2nd through the 6th, which includes photos of students in their classroom and events throughout the year. The yearbook will be passed out the last week of school. The cost is $14. Cash and checks are accepted and checks can be payable to Hawthorn School District 73. Students can bring their envelope with the money to their homeroom teacher. Please look for an envelope sent home with your child. Yearbooks will be sold by school this year!
All yearbook sales are handled by envelopes passed out to homeroom teachers. There is no online option.
