We are currently looking for class reps for every grade except Catherine Cyr’s 2/3 class. A class rep serves as a liaison between teachers and parents (helping to find volunteers for class trips, sending reminders from the teacher out to class parents etc.) and also as a liaison between parents and the parent council (attends parent council meetings and lets class parents know about relevant issues that are discussed; passes along important dates, reminders etc.) This is an important role as teachers and parent council depend on the class rep to share/distribute timely information to class parents. Please note that this role can be shared between two parent volunteers.
If you would like to be a class rep please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

On Thursday, February 23, the kindergarten to grade 2 classes at Hawthorne participated in workshops with Bill Russell, a wonderful children’s entertainer. The students danced and sang and clapped to traditional children’s songs and dances in English and en francais.
Thanks once again to the enrichment committee and Mariposa in the Schools.
The grade 1, 1/2 and 2 classes were very fortunate to participate in a storytelling session by Bernice Hune. The students were riveted by her tales of magic paintbrushes and dragons. Each class then got to take part in a workshop to make their own dragons to take home.
Thank you to the Enrichment commitee and the parent helpers in each class. What a wonderful way to celebrate Lunar New Year and welcome in the Year of the Dragon.
