Summer Reading Program Grades 4-8

posted Jun 7, 2018, 9:46 AM by Deborah Thorne   [ updated Jun 7, 2018, 9:57 AM ]

Reading is everywhere, and this summer we want our students to be super readers … because reading rocks! Not everyone can get to the public library or book store when they’re on summer holidays.  So we found a way to keep kids in grade 4-8 reading all summer with our Summer Reading Rocks program! If you want to read all summer long, this is all you need to do: 
1. Bring the attached form home and have it signed! 
2. Return the signed form to your school library. 
3. Pick out up to 10 library books you’d like to borrow and then take them home over the summer break! 
Don’t forget, you have to make sure that you have already brought back any library books you borrowed during the school year before you can check out items for summer break.  So check in your locker, under your bed, and in your school bag, and make sure everything has been returned! One more thing!  Have you tried an Audio or E‐Book yet?  Did you know that as long as you have your school library barcode number, you can borrow and download tons more titles at http://hdsb.lib.overdrive.com.

Battle of the Books

posted Apr 10, 2018, 9:43 AM by Laura Toperczer

Hawthorne's Battle of the Books team traveled to Milton Library on Monday with hearts set only on a fun learning experience having had only a handful of practices. The team worked together to answer trivia questions in a series of six battles, coming up with many more answers than they expected to know. Satisfied with a fantastic first battle experience and plans to do even better next year we returned to school with smiles all around. These smiles grew into enormous cheers and grins when we learned that Hawthorne had placed in the top two of the 14 schools competing.  This amazing result means the team moves on to the Grand Battle.  Huge congratulations go out to Iman A., Katelyn P., Kate J., Marium Z., Alexis P., Mariela H., Rayan R., Suha P. and Reeham W.! Please join us in cheering them on with well wishes for the next battle!

On Wednesday, March 28th, 8 students represented Hawthorne Village at the Halton Skills Competition.  
The Skills Competition is an event where students from Grade 4 - 12 from the Halton District School Board and Halton Catholic School Board demonstrate their technical skills in a friendly but competitive environment.  Our students competed in both the junior and intermediate Vex IQ robotics Ringmaster Challenge.  Both the junior and intermediate team did a fantastic job throughout the day in their round robin matches, collaborating in a joint challenge with teams from other schools.  Teams demonstrated outstanding teamwork, collaboration and sportsmanship. Our Junior team had a great final round, placing 3rd third in their division. Our intermediate team had an incredible final round, placing 1st place.  The intermediate team will be advancing to represent Halton District School Board at Skills Ontario in May.  Congratulations to both teams!
