Welcome to the Hawthorne II Alternative Bilingual School website.
Our school is a unique K to 6 school in that it offers a bilingual program in French and English. As well, a strong emphasis is placed on social justice and environmental education. We invite you to follow Hawthorne happenings via this website. You can subscribe to receive the latest postings to the site by email or subscribe to the Hawthorne Events calendar (using Outlook, Google Calendar, or your iPhone). (more…)
CALLING ALL BAKERS!
The Bake Sale is an integral part of Essex-Hawthorne’s Spring Fling, coming soon on Friday June 1st (3:30 – 7:30 pm)
We’re asking,please, for yummy, baked good donations (sweet and/or savoury), but most importantly nut free!
And if you’re not into baking or pushed for time, please bring store bought goodies, as long as they are nut free (and better still, made in a nut free facility).
Sign up sheet is on the Essex notice board in the main foyer.
Please drop off baked goods on the day of Spring Fling in the Essex office or bring them to the event.
The replacement of the 3rd floor windows began Wednesday. As a result, the main doors for Essex (Exit #1) will be closed until the work is completed.
Please use Hawthorne Main until further notice.

Bag2School is a textile recycling company that collects unwanted, wearable and unwearable textiles to be reused or refurbished into new textiles and materials. If you are spring cleaning, we are accepting clean adults’ and children’s clothes, shoes (tied together please), outerwear, hats, belts, handbags, drapes, linens and soft toys. It is a great opportunity to get rid of that single mitten or single sock rather than sending it to landfill. Bag2School donations can be dropped off between Tuesday May 8th and Thursday May 10th. The drop off spot will be the small “Guidance Room” in the Essex Primary hallway (look for signs in the front foyer to guide you there). Please note, no donations will be accepted after May 10th.
