May 29, 2014

As you are likely well aware,  the protracted negotiations between the BCTF and BCPSEA have not been very fruitful and it is beginning to impact daily life at Hawthorne.  The latest developments have forced the cancellation of some field trips, meetings and staff planning.  We are all hopeful for a speedy resolution to this impasse and we will do our best to keep you informed.  Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

Thank you to the many parents who joined us at our Volunteer Appreciation Tea on Thursday, May 22.  It was a well attended event and a great opportunity for our staff to recognize the tremendous contributions that parents make to Hawthorne.  We truly appreciate the support whether it be with homework, field trips, fundraising, classroom help and the list goes on.  Our shared efforts help to make Hawthorne the best school it can be.

On Thursday, May 15th, Hawthorne was proudly represented by over 50 students at the District Track Meet.  Our students enjoyed a great day and we congratulate them on their efforts.  Our grade 4 girls relay team actually continued their track and field experience at the provincial track and field championships held at Minoru Park in Richmond. Well done Lauren Amundsen, Mackenzie Gray, Gabrielle Valle and Kaitlyn Kitigawa. Thank you to all of our coaches and parents for their support during the track and field season. Special thanks to Mrs. Robinson for coordinating our efforts.

It was clear on Monday morning that most of our Hawthorne families were somehow involved with the Ladner May Days held last weekend.  It was an exciting weekend for Ladner and the continuation of a great community tradition.  Our school was represented formally by Skye-Ann Persad who was one of the princesses chosen from each school in Delta.
