Each of our grade 3-7 classrooms have now chosen two representatives to work on Hawthorne's student council. These students will be working together to plan spirit days, fundraising events and our Talent Show in March. They have already hosted a successful Halloween event and we look forward to the next school spirit day in November.

PERSONAL VALUABLES AT SCHOOL
Please note that students are discouraged from bringing valuables of any kind to the school. This includes electronic equipment such as iPods or headphones. Cell phones are allowed as long as they are stored in backpacks and turned off from 9am-3pm. We are also asking that students please keep their card collections (Pokemon, Magic, Hockey, etc.) at home as we have had a few too many go missing or get damaged. Thank you in advance for your attention to this issue.
Parents are invited to check out your PAC's new website that provides our community with all the information needed to be an informed parent at Hawthorne. Thank you to Leanne Pryce for coordinating this effort.

AN INTERESTING READ
I was recently forwarded an interesting article from a British author who speaks passionately about the importance of reading. You can learn more about Neil Gaiman's perspective at the following link. Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Graham for bringing this to my attention.
