Halloween is fast approaching!
There is excitement from students for the various festivities that will take place. Essex & Hawthorne are diverse and vibrant school communities; and, as we prepare for the Halloween festivities, we would ask students to wear non-violent and culturally-sensitive costumes for Halloween.
Thank you for your support,
J. Harry Quon
