The Spring Fling is our extremely well-attended annual fundraiser, and local businesses are invited to sponsor the event in exchange for major exposure.
Our school families love to support each other’s small businesses, and this is an opportunity to get your name out there!
We are offering Spring Fling Sponsorship spots to Essex/Hawthorne parents and families and friends FIRST before offering them to the larger community. We have a limited number of sponsorships available for $150, $250 and $500 ($500 limited to 3 and includes signage outside the bouncy castle/major attraction)
** Sponsorships are tax deductible and you will be provided with a tax receipt **
Does your business want the chance to connect with over 500 local families, as well as some social media exposure?
Please get in touch with Allison Venditti – firstname.lastname@example.org by April 17, for full details and to reserve your spot.
Bring your unwanted clothing, textiles, or shoes (tied together, please) to the guidance room in the Essex kindergarten area, any time from April 25-29. Signs will be posted in the school as we get closer to the date.
If you have any questions, please contact Megan Easto at email@example.com.
From time to time, it is helpful to review school policies to ensure that the safety of all students and staff at Essex Jr. & Sr. P.S. & Hawthorne II Bilingual Alternative Jr. P.S. is a top priority.
Our staff will continue to demonstrate that priority by ensuring that proper procedures are in place to ensure that our school is safe. There are so many factors to consider in maintaining a nurturing learning environment including the health and safety of students and staff.
As such, we would like to take this opportunity to remind parents of our school policy that dogs are not permitted on school property and emphasize our ongoing expectation that parents shall not bring their dogs on school property when dropping off or picking up their children or while school is in session.
Our schoolyard provides a safe clean area for students to learn and play. Parents are asked to comply with all signs posted when on or around school property during and after school hours.
We are asking for everyone’s co-operation in following this policy so that working together we can help keep our students, staff and parents safe while at school.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school.
On June 4th, 5th and 6th the students of Essex and Hawthorne will be performing the Lion King. We are looking for volunteers who can help us with costuming. If you are crafty, like to sew or are creative with constructing costumes, we need your help! Please email Jessica.firstname.lastname@example.org
