Dear Parents/Guardians of Hawthorne PS,


On behalf of the Hawthorne Parent Council we are pleased to announce that the Annual Dance-A-Thon Fundraiser was a great success. The students worked hard to meet the fundraising goals and over the last few months have enjoyed a variety of Parent Council sponsored challenges such as Dunk Tank Fun, Teacher Lip Syncs and Pie in the Face activities. Thank you to our students and families for their generous contributions.  


Our individual prize winners who received gift cards were:  

Primary - Gabriella G    ~  Junior- Bree G -  ~  Intermediate-Gavin M  ~   Grand Prize - Brett H

 Ms. Firlit’s Grade 5 Class - Top Total Seller celebrated with a Pizza Party


The Dance-a-Thon raised an impressive school total of $ 20, 800. The funds have been allocated to enrich student learning across the grades and programs  (i.e., update classroom & home reading literacy programs; virtual field trip technology in the library; outdoor recess blacktop painting; specialized classroom furnitures; stage stairs; chromebooks & IPADs; outdoor garden and more).


Get Involved!  Come out to a Parent Council Meeting the first Monday of the month ( first Monday of the Month - October 2nd).  Check the website for more information.


Well done!  Hawthorne rocks because of you !
