Thanks to Jessica (Gr. 6) and the Grade 5 and 6 classes for a sunny outdoor band performance to celebrate Music Monday! The band just keeps getting better and better and both Essex and Hawthorne students were able to sit outdoors and enjoy some afternoon tunes.
Also, thanks to Catherine Cyr (Gr. 2/3) for organizing our first ever Earth Week film festival … many great films were viewed by all grades throughout the week. Let’s hope we can make this an annual event!!

Here are some recommended ipad apps from Hawthorne teachers. We hope to make this a regular feature!
From Allister: 53 paper is an ecofriendly paperless app that allows kids to draw and create anything they want using their hands. I use it all the time!
From Sylvain: StoryKit is a great app for story writing and reading. You can create your own story book, including pictures and/or drawings. We will be using it in the Primary grades for a project in Math.
