School Messenger from Dr. Haack 10/2/2020

Hello Townline families,

Thanks to all of you for your help in navigating the MAP tests with your children! 

The beginning of the day is an important time as it sets the tone for the day and we continue to build community with our students. Please have your children be on time for the morning meeting as well as other times of the school day.  Period attendance is taken in morning meeting, ELA, math, PE, art, music, Second Step, and live science and social studies sessions. Thank you for your continued partnership!

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 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.

Please check out this flyer regarding how you can partner with the Key to 73 foundation in supporting our Hawthorn families. 

It’s not too late to order your Hawthorn spirit wear.  The website is open for orders until October 4.

This year, the PTO will be having virtual Halloween parties! The parties will take place on Friday, October 30 during a 30 minute period of the school day. We are looking for 1-2 parent volunteers from each classroom to assist in making this fun event possible for our kids.  There will not be a party sign up this year, but we are accepting volunteers via e-mail. 

If you are interested in volunteering to assist with the party, please e-mail your PTO VP with your name, your child’s grade, and their teacher’s name  by October 9th in order to be considered for volunteering. Townline’s VP is Samantha Burmeister and she can be reached at
