A Letter From Dr. Haack

Hello Townline families,

Happy Friday!  Thank you for your patience this morning with transportation.  We know that traffic was high due to road closures related to the rain.  It was great to see so many parents at our curriculum night on September 5. Thank you for taking the time to attend.  If you were unable to attend and have questions regarding your child’s school year, please contact your child’s teacher.  The principal’s welcome presentation can be found on the Townline website by clicking here

SAY CHEESE! Picture Day is scheduled for September 19.  Please look for the picture form in your child’s backpack.  We can’t wait to see all of the beautiful smiles!

We are excited to welcome families to our annual Ice Cream Social on Friday, September 20 from 6:30-8:00 pm in the cafeteria/gym area.  This is sure to be an exciting event for the whole family! The night includes entertainment from Tim Hannig that will begin at 7:00 pm, as well as ice cream available for purchase before the show.  Please click here to learn more about the entertainment for the event.

Our first early release day will be Thursday, October 3.  Dismissal will be at 12:20 pm. Please be sure to add this date to your calendar as students will be dismissed early from school!

Please consider adding the following events to your calendar: 

Friday, October 18 at 6:30 – Key to 73 Foundations: Oktoberfest at Viper Alley (This is an adults only event).  For more information, please visit the Foundation website at keyto73foundation.org.

Please remember that it is vital that you report your child’s absence if they are not able to attend school by 9:00 am.  You can report the absence by calling our main office at 847.990.4901 or by emailing tl-attend@hawthorn73.org.
