Inclement Weather Update

Hawthorn takes school closings very seriously. Should schools close due to inclement weather or other unforeseen reasons, the district uses an automated emergency notification system to send a recorded voice message to each student’s home telephone number, as provided during registration. Parents have the option of managing their emergency notifications by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal to change telephone numbers, request text messaging, and request email messaging. For more information on how Hawthorn determines school closings, please click here.

Students learning about pumpkins

A Visit from the Pumpkin Lady

Just in time for Halloween, the Pumpkin Lady (Jody May from the Lake County Farm Bureau) taught students in three classes, including Ms. Lara’s first grade class, about pumpkins. She read a book about seeds, and explained the process of how a pumpkin grows. Students were surprised to learn that farmers in Illinois grow more pumpkins than in any other state. Then it was time for a fun activity. The students put together their own colorful collages illustrating the growth process. Everyone had a good time.

More School Flags to Fly in Antarctica

Townline Elementary and the School of Dual Language are the latest schools to provide flags to be flown in Antarctica. Aspen Elementary, Middle School North and several other local schools also provided flags to Air National Guard Chaplain (Lt. Col.) James Buckman, pastor at Faith Lutheran Church in Lake Forest. He and other Air Guard personnel will travel to Antarctica next week to support a group of scientists who will be working at the South Pole for 40 days. He will fly the flags while he is stationed there.
