Tuesday, December 16th

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the Hawthorne community for its ongoing support of our efforts at the school. The caring culture that exists at Hawthorne is evident in all the work being done by our staff, students and parents.  The new year is already shaping up as a busy one for our school, with countless special events and great opportunities for learning. In the meantime, I hope that the holidays provide you with plenty of time to spend with those closest to you. On behalf of the staff at Hawthorne, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

After a sleepless night our students awoke on Friday, December 12th to very favourable reviews for the 2014 Christmas Concert.  By all accounts it was a great success.  Thank you to all the parents, grandparents, friends and relatives who joined us for the show.  Special thanks to our teachers who invested so much time into preparing our students and creating the decorations.  It was a great way to end what has been a challenging year in education.

Please note that our grade 7 students are hosting a bottle drive on Saturday, January 10th.  They are asking that you please put aside any potential donations until that day when they will be travelling through the neighbourhood.  Proceeds from the bottle drive will support the expenses associated with the grade 7 ski program and year-end activities.

Morgan Levins, a grade 6 Hawthorne student, would like to you to
consider the needs of the Delta Community Animal Shelter this Christmas.  DCAS is provides a safe, temporary home that offers medical and emotional support.  They are always in need of financial support and you can find out more at this link:  http://www.delta.ca/services/animal-shelter/overview.
