Movie Night – Friday, April 13 – Disney Pixar’s Coco

Despite his family’s generations-old ban on music, young Miguel dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol Ernesto de la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead. After meeting a charming trickster named Héctor, the two new friends embark on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.


Come on out and join the rest of the Hawthorne family in the gym on Friday! Admission is complimentary and there will be a concession with pizza, popcorn and some other goodies for a small cost.

Bring pillows, mats, blankets – anything to help get comfortable and enjoy the evening. Parents are welcome to join the kids on the ground or find a spot on one of the benches – or throw a lawn chair into your trunk just in case.

Did you know that EVERYONE is welcome to attend the PAC meetings?

We know the fear is if you show up, you will be put to work, but we promise, you will only ever be part of something you want to do but the meeting is the BEST place to get information on what is coming up at the school. We all care about making sure our school is the very best it can be for our kids, and there is no better forum to know how true that is than by attending the PAC meetings. In fact, we are so sure you don’t know what you are missing, we sent a roving report out to ask insider Kim Merrell Barnes to share some information:

Reporter: Who attends the meetings? Is it only for those who are on this mysterious PAC? 
Kim: PAC members are each and every parent with children attending the school, so meetings are open to all parents and we encourage them to come and listen to what is happening at the school.

Reporter: If I attend, does that mean I am committing to being on the PAC? 
Kim: Coming to a meeting doesn’t mean you become a PAC executive member, just an interested and involved parent.

Reporter: What gets talked about at the meetings?
Kim: We talk about what is going on at the school, things we want to see happen at the school, Mrs. Fisher talk to us about her initiatives and what the teachers are doing, we discuss problems arising at the school and within the district as well as fundraising needs and goals. ALL parents have a say and vote in what is decided and suggestions are always welcome and appreciated.

Reporter: How long do meetings go for? 
Kim: Meetings generally last for no longer than 1 hour, great way to meet other parents, be in the “know”. 

So there you have it folks, come out to the next meeting which happens to be our afternoon sitting so come a bit earlier than normal for pickup, come hang out in the Multi Purpose room for an hour and get caught up on all things Hawthorne!

Hawthorne PAC Christmas Movie Night

Thanks for making this year’s Movie Night a huge success!! Special thanks to all those that helped bring the event to life.

This year’s movie: Arthur Christmas Everyone knows that, each Christmas, Santa Claus delivers presents to every last child on Earth. What everyone doesn’t know is that Santa accomplishes the feat with a very high-tech operation beneath the North Pole. But when the unthinkable happens, and Santa misses one child out of hundreds of millions, someone has to save the day. It’s up to Arthur (James McAvoy), Santa’s youngest son, to deliver a present to the forgotten tyke before Christmas morning dawns.

Every December, our Hawthorne family comes together in the Hawthorne gym for a movie night! This event is free to attend and the concession is wallet, and kid friendly.

If you have never attended one of these evenings before, prepare for a simple and casual night. Kids can wear their pj’s – most do – and bring along a pillow and blanket to stake their spot on the mats with their friends. Bleachers will be pulled out for some other seating options. Pizza, chips, juice/water and sour keys will be flowing from the concession.

Mark your calendars and don’t miss out on the fun!

Have a wonderful start to the school year!
