Updates and Reminders:


1) Thank you for all of the support with this month's Kindness Calendar.  It is wonderful to hear about all the kind things our students are doing for others.    

2) Our snow hills have turned into ice slabs.  We have closed them until we get a good load of fluffier snow.  Hopefully, we won't have to wait long!

3) If you have any extra lego we are the people to take it off of your hands.  Please feel free to drop off any unwanted Lego to Megan's office.  We have created a lego area in our library!

4) Lice is circulating through a number of classes right now.  I would ask that you speak with your kids about not sharing hats.  If the issue persists, we will work with school council to discuss different checking options like Lice Busters.  We welcome input.

5) We are still looking for larger sizes of skates or helmets we would love to have them as we prepare to use the Woodroffe Park ice rink.  Please feel free to drop these at the office.

6) Please see the attached flyer about the Ottawa Youth Orchestra. 

7) If you have changed contact information please let the office know as soon as possible.  This includes email addresses as many communications go out using email.

8) We would ask that parents do not use the staff parking lot for drop off.  The Church parking lot is available during bus drop off and pick up and any other time you are welcome to use our driveway.  


We hope you all enjoy time with your families this weekend!

4) We had our first student council meeting today and it was wonderful to hear from students from grades 1-6 about what is important to them.  We talked about our library renovation, recess, snow forts, activities and trips.  We will be meeting each month and getting their perspectives to also be shared at School Council too.

5) If you have larger sizes of skates or helmets we would love to have them as we prepare to use the Woodroffe Park ice rink.  Please feel free to drop these at the office.

6) Tuesday, November 29th is the Day of Giving - if you have any gently used snowsuits and/or winter boots, Hawthorne School is in desperate need.  Drop these off all week and we will take them over on Friday morning.
