Queridos Padres y Guardianes,

Esta tarde, el Oficial de Recursos del distrito recibió un reporte de que un hombre blanco conduciendo un coche rojo se acercó a un estudiante y ofreció un paseo. No hubo estímulo ni cuando el estudiante se negó. Por favor, tenga una conversación sobre la seguridad con sus hijos sobre personas extraños. El Departamento de Policía de Vernon Hills ha sido alertado de la situación.

Si tiene alguna pregunta o inquietud, por favor no dude en contactarme al 847-990-4215 o por correo electrónico a brownn@hawthorn73.org.

Sinceramente, Nick Brown Superintendente

A Scientific Challenge

About 74 Townline Elementary School students in Grades 4 and 5 are testing powders, studying rocks and minerals, and conducting a variety of other scientific tests in preparation for the upcoming Science Olympiad competition.

Students challenge themselves to design the sleekest paper airplane model that will land closest to a targeted zone. Students will design cars out of a collection of materials with the objective to make their vehicle roll the furthest down a ramp.

In all, there are seven competition categories that test students’ knowledge of geology, chemistry, weather, physics and aerodynamics. Students will compete against other schools on Saturday, May 6 in Arlington Heights. A school sponsored Science Olympiad evening will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 2.

“The Science Olympiad is a great way for our students to have a choice in becoming experts in one area,” said Principal Victoria Kieffer.  “Students have the opportunity to expand their knowledge in science and compete against each other in fun competitive events.  It’s all about teamwork, collaboration and learning new science concepts.  My hope is that students learn to love science and get interested in participating in future science events,” Dr. Kieffer said.

 

 

 

 

Personalized Learning

When learning is personalized for students, they become the leaders of their own learning and work at a pace that’s right for each of them. Hawthorn teachers have been working on the Guaranteed Viable Curriculum (GVC) for the last three years, which identifies our desired results for all students. Personalized learning experiences allow students to approach the GVC in a way that will make them successful. To enhance their learning experiences, Hawthorn middle school students will be issued a Chromebook next year. This tool will expand opportunities for personalized learning both within and outside of the classroom to meet their individual needs and inspire a love for learning.
