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.

Doing Something Special for Others

Jumping Rope for a Good Cause

Students at the School of Dual Language, including these third graders, are getting exercise and helping others at the same time through their involvement in the Kids Heart Challenge benefiting the American Heart Association. The program teaches kids jump rope skills and helps prepare them for success through physical and emotional well-being, while raising funds to fight heart disease.

Spelling Bee Challenges Students in More Ways Than One

A group of fourth and fifth grade students participated in the School of Dual Language’s spelling bee on January 17. This event not only tests students’ ability to spell, it tests their ability to stay calm and focused as they stand in the spotlight. The students did a great job as they moved through round after round, spelling words such as dainty, garland, batteries and filters. By round 13, the contest was down to four students. A few rounds later, Campbell F. won by spelling the word legend. Maeve M. came in second and Lucas J. came in third. Congratulations to all the students.
