Your Opinion Matters

Tell us what you think in the state’s annual 5Essentials Survey ~ https://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/ ~. If your children attend more than one district school, please base your survey answers on one school. You may answer the survey for each school.

The survey provides a unique opportunity for parents to have a voice in improving their schools. The 20-minute research-based survey will help District 73 identify strengths and weaknesses in its schools’ learning environment.

5Essentials is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. It is an opportunity to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness at Hawthorn. In order for us to view your responses, at least 20 percent of each school’s parents must complete this survey.

Foundation Members Sought

Foundation Application

Hawthorn is starting an Education Foundation to raise private sector funds to support the goals of our Strategic Plan. Currently, we are looking for inaugural Board Members to kick off 2017.

Profile of the Successful Board Member:  The minimum time commitment for a board member includes 3 annual meetings per year, which will take place once a trimester at the District Office (841 West End Court, Vernon Hills). The Foundation’s success in building and maintaining community support will come from board members that are able to make significant contribution of time and resources, have the determination to complete projects in a timely way with little oversight, and, most importantly, have a passion for true excellence in education!

Qualifications: A well-functioning school system benefits everyone in the district. Reflecting that community-wide impact, the board should consist of individuals with varied backgrounds and include parents, teachers, other licensed professionals, and representatives of local businesses. Everyone willing to roll up their sleeves is welcome! However, given the nature of our events and projects, we strongly encourage individuals to apply if they have specific experience in project management, public and media relations, fundraising, web design, and/or event planning.

Benefits of Board Membership: Members receive no compensation for serving on the Foundation’s Board. Board Members do get opportunities to work closely with Hawthorn’s community and help to determine which projects, grants, and initiatives should receive Foundation sponsorship. Helping to create non-governmental financial support for the District is one of the most important and effective methods for fostering sustained academic excellence.

Board Member Application: To begin the nomination process, please email a bio with the completed Board Member Application to Jill Martin atmartinj@hawthorn73.org.  Dr. Martin can also be reached at 847 990-4800 (office). Once the information has been submitted an interview will be arranged.
