Sports Day at Hawthorne Elementary School is on Friday, June 3rd and we hope that you can join us for the fun. Students are invited to decorate bikes, trikes, wagons, skateboards, scooters, or other wheeled conveyances to participate in the Wheels Parade which will start at 9:25 a.m.  The Ocean Adventures theme consists of four colours GREEN (Octopus), Yellow (Nemos), Blue (Narwhals) and Red (Pirates).  Students are invited to dress up according to their team’s theme however please keep in mind that students will be very active throughout the day.  A schedule will be sent home to parents early next week but please note that we typically dismiss students at around 2:15pm.  Parents are reminded to refrain from smoking on the school grounds while watching Sports Day events and we request that you please leave your dogs at home.  

In case of poor weather, Sports Day will be held on Monday, June 6th.  Postponement of Sports Day, if necessary, will be announced on CKNW 980 and in an email sent to families.  Students’ Sports Day food orders will be served on Friday, June 3rd even if Sports Day is postponed; however, we hope to have the concession stand open on the Monday. 

The 2016-2017 school calendar has officially been released to the community.  Hopefully this will assist families with their planning for next year.  The calendar will also be posted on our website.

Held in Memorial Park just steps from historic Ladner Village, the Ladner Pioneer May Days Fair (est. 1896) is one of British Columbia's largest free family fairs.  This year's festivities were held this weekend from May 27-29. Hawthorne was proudly represented at this event by Taylor Halket will join other girls from around Delta seeking the title of this year's May Day Queen.  The festivities begin on Friday evening and continued throughout the weekend with plenty of free family entertainment.


The staff at Hawthorne hosted a Parent Volunteer Tea on Tuesday, May 26 to recognize our outstanding parent community.  While not all parents were able to attend we want to thank you for your support of our efforts (classroom helper, parent driver, PAC representative, Hot Lunches, Fruit and Veggie Program,  etc.)   Our school is a better place thanks to the hard work of so many parents who volunteer their time and energy.
