Time for Music

Kindergarten students explored rhythm, movement and sound in Mr. Scheuring’s music class. Along with beat buddies (stuffed animals) and Gilbert the Ghost, the students had fun singing and moving to the beat of the music. At the end of the class, Mr. Scheuring sang the Hawthorn School for Young Learners song “Soaring Eagles,” of which he also wrote the lyrics.

Dear Parents,

This message is in regards to your child’s HEALTH FORMS (medical only, this does not include dentist or eye doctor.)   Originally, we had thought that health forms would be due when children would return to learning in person.  According to ISBE guidelines, there is no waiver for this and WE WILL NEED YOUR UPDATED MEDICAL FORMS BY 10/15/2020.  

  • The state of Illinois has not changed the guidelines as far as requirements for entering Kindergarten.  
  • This mandate calls for a current  physical examination and  all required vaccinations. The deadline for this is October 15th.  
  • If we do not have this information on 10/15/2020, your child will be excluded from learning. (even remotely)

Submitting forms:

  1. Ring doorbell and drop them off at our front door – 637 N. Aspen, Vernon Hills, IL 60061
  2. Email forms to mahrenholzd@hawthorn73.org (our school nurse) or your teacher
  3. Fax forms to (847) 549-7822

Please submit Health Forms as soon as possible.

Thank you,

Dr. Jill Martin

Nessie the bearded dragon

Students Meet Nessie

Mrs. Schorsch introduced Nessie, the school’s new pet, to her ELL students on Wednesday morning. Nessie is a one-year-old bearded dragon. He likes to eat berries, greens, crickets and worms, and is super friendly. The children were excited to meet him.

Hawthorn School for Young Learners

Dear HSYL Families,

Happy Meet & Greet Day!  I hope you had fun meeting your teacher today!  It was so much fun to “see” you on Zoom – even though we wish you were here.  We also enjoyed seeing so many of you at Device/Supply Bag pick-up!  Please hold on to those RED BAGS to exchange materials as needed throughout this school year.

Hawthorn has created a comprehensive District 73 Return to Learning Family Handbook.  Please take some time to look over this important document.

Items to note:

  • Attendance:  Student attendance is taken at ALL synchronous sessions throughout the day. We know that this may be difficult for kindergarten students!  Don’t worry – you will not be penalized if you miss a session.  We are required to keep track of missed sessions.  If this does not work for your family, please contact your teacher to make individual arrangements.  If our office calls you, we are just checking to make sure the child is OK.
  • If a student is unable to attend a session, please send an email to HSYL-attend@hawthorn.com and copy your teacher – that way we will know that all is well and will not call you.  You do not need to send separate emails if you have reported your child  “sick” at the beginning of the day
  • Families needing technology support before, during, or after the school day are encouraged to access our Student Technology FAQ. Families may also contact our Instructional Technology Department at techsupport@hawthorn73.org or 847-990-4239. Families may wish to bookmark or print our technology support flyer.
  • A Zoom Home Help Guide is available for families in English and Español.

As we begin kindergarten, it is most important for us to build relationships and safe, supportive, and caring classroom communities.   We will also focus on teaching routines and procedures for our students to be successful.  This is a learning experience for ALL of us.  Take a deep breath, we’ve got this (and if we don’t, we will LEARN, that’s what kindergarten is all about).

Looking forward to Monday!

Sincerely,

Dr. Jill Martin
