Hello Townline families,
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving with family and friends. Here are a few updates for Townline!
Be Seen and Be Heard parent presentation
The parent information night for the Be Seen and Be Heard program is Monday, December 2nd at 6:30 p.m. at Aspen School. If you are interested in learning more about the program and what your child will experience, please attend this parent night.
Our first round of yearbook sales is this week, December 2-December 6. The cost of the yearbook is $14.00. Cash or check (made out to Hawthorn School District 73) can be turned into your child’s teacher this week. If you send payment with your child, please clearly mark that the money is for the yearbook. Yearbooks will be distributed to those who order at the end of the year. If you have questions about the yearbook, please contact our yearbook teacher sponsor, Miss Peterson at email@example.com.
We have noticed an increase of parents who are getting out of their vehicle in the morning drop-off line. In order to keep the line flowing, we ask that anyone who would like to help their child out of the car or walk their child to the door/sidewalk, please park in an available parking spot and walk their child across to the sidewalk. This will help to keep the line flowing. Thank you for your help with this.
Thank you to all of the parents that have completed the 5 Essentials survey. We want to hear from you. Each school needs a minimum of 20% parent participation in order to receive full results from the survey. We are close but have not yet reached that threshold. Please help us out by following the steps below.
1. Visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/ and select Parent Survey.
2. Select the necessary language to complete the survey (English or Spanish)
3. Enter email address* (optional), county of your child’s school (Lake), and school name (Hawthorn Townline).
4. Advance to survey questions**
5. Click Submit Survey.
*You will have the option to leave your email address so that you can receive confirmation of taking the survey. The text box can be left blank if you do not want to wish to leave your email address.
**You may skip any questions you do not wish to answer, but you must click ‘Submit Survey’ at the end in order for your responses to be recorded.

Here is another opportunity for you to volunteer in your child’s class. Second lesson of Art Adventure is round the corner and here is the sign-up link for you. Please consider doing an art adventure lesson in your child’s class.
Winter seems to have come early this year. Please note that we go outside if the temperature and wind chill is at or above 10 degrees. Please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather. In order for a student to play in the snow, they must wear a coat, boots, a hat, gloves and snow pants. If students do not have all of these items, they will be limited to the blacktop area.
