Learning About Quilts

posted Apr 2, 2017, 7:45 PM by Laura Toperczer

Our grade three students at Hawthorne Village took part in a special quilting project organized by the Halton Quilters Guild who visited over 900 students in Halton. Students created a quilt block with members from Guild at our school.  The blocks were then taken and sewn together to create eight unique class quilts.  Alongside the quilters, the classes have now named their quilts and they will be on display in The Stitches In Our Time Quilt show held on Saturday April 22nd in Burlington, Ontario.   Our grade three classes will then get their quilts returned and we will be donating them to various groups in our community to enjoy. 

April is Earth Month

posted Mar 31, 2017, 8:52 AM by Laura Toperczer

Litter takes years to break down. It releases pollutants into the air, water, soil and can impact wildlife.  The Hawthorne ECO student teams are leading the school wide April School Grounds Clean Up. During the month of April classes will  clean up rotating areas around the school with supplies provided (i.e. glove/recycling bags).  This is an excellent way to educate all our students about the impact of litter on the environment and how they can help to make a difference in their community.

Back by popular demand, on March 30th, the dynamic duo, Blake & Dave, ( Authors, Speakers & Music Makers) shared their knowledge and insights on topics such as  “ My Life OnLine”  and “ Making Changes” with our students in Grades 4 - 8. Their engaging presentations were filled with an array of personal stories, music and powerful messages that empowered students to” plant the seeds of  appreciation, recognition and thoughtfulness in their daily routines.”

Complete Sets of Chess, Checkers or Board Games?

We are looking to start two different groups during the nutrition breaks at Hawthorne Village but we need your help...
Hawthorne Community: Do you have gently used board games, chess or checkers boards that you would kindly like to donate to Hawthorne Village for the clubs? These games need to be in good condition with no missing pieces. We are hoping to run a chess/checkers club for intermediates and a games club for primary students. Lots of skills and learning can be done through games. We are hoping to start these clubs the week of March 6 or shortly after the March Break. Hawthorne Village rocks because of complete sets of Chess, Checkers and board games. Thank you for your continued support.

Parent Volunteers Needed!

The Dance-A-Thon is fast approaching and we are in need of many more volunteers to make this event that we have worked so hard on a success. This event is important to the school and the kids have so much fun, if you have any availability on Friday, March 3, please let us know. We require day volunteers during school hours and evening volunteers from 4:30pm till about 8:30pm. 

Also please do not forget to send in your child's pledge form, the kids are determined to bring in enough pledges to see a bucket of water over a teacher's head....who doesn't dream of that as a student?

February 24 is also money counting day from noon until dismissal bell. We are short volunteers for this day. If you are available to assist anytime from noon until dismissal please be sure to email the school the times you are available.

Thanks everyone...volunteer participation is so important and thanks to everyone for helping make all of our events such a wonderful success.

As you are aware, our 10th annual Dance a Thon is taking place on Friday, March 3.
