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…)

I wanted to share this resource to support “Parent Tips for Navigating Healthy Relationships” with younger children. The target age is for parents of children aged 3-8. I have attached a PDF of the file as well as a link to the page on the TDSB website. Some schools are sharing this resource with parents in their elementary schools prior to the start of summer, and some are planning to use it with incoming JK families. It can also be linked to a school’s twitter page or website, if they are interested.
Thank you to everyone who supported the review and distribution of this document, and thank you Suzy Brotman for helping putting it together.
Please feel free to distribute it widely.
Thank you for your support!

We had another successful Teachers Appreciation Lunch yesterday. Our menu was full of delicious goodies, thanks to those of you who contributed food!
We had several parents volunteers who did the setup, serve and clean up. Thank you!
Our teachers and school staff really enjoyed the lunch.
Visit our parent Facebook page to check out some photos of our table.
Have a happy summer!

Please feel free to forward this schedule to any other parents you think would be interested in helping out. It is a fun way to stay connected to the school in the summer and often our kids love joining in to care for the school grounds.
During the week from 7:30 am-6:00 pm the daycare is open so you are able to find the caretakers if you have any difficulties with the water hook up. Often if you set up the hose in the kindergarten yard during daycare hours, you will have plenty of children who will do the job for you!
We urge you to donate a week of your time!

Thank you very much,

P.S. You are free to help yourself to peas, greens, herbs and any tomatoes that may come to fruition, and don’t forget the Saskatoon berries.

They will be performing traditional song and dance, ending with student participation. We welcome parents, caregivers and friends to join us. We do ask that visitors sit outside the 2 inner circles, as those 2 rows are reserved for students and staff.
