CBE Budget Adjustments


The most recent details around the provincial budget impacts on CBE can be found here. Some of the important pieces from this update include information on funding levels for schools, capital expenditures, administration costs and transportation.

How exactly these challenges will impact Hawkwood School is yet to be determined. This coming week we will be formulating a new budget for our current school year. Although changes from this new plan will not take effect until January 2020, we should be able to share some details around the level of impact before then.

Scholastic Book Fair


The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to our school and you are invited to come and share in this celebration of literacy with us!

Now more than ever, reading is vital to leading a better life. Knowing how to read is just the beginning. Motivating young people to keep reading, comprehend what they read and develop the ability to think creatively are the end goals.

Scholastic Book Fairs has the books to motivate more reading. With your involvement, we can inspire children to practice reading and read more often. Together, we can make a difference in their lives that will last a lifetime.

Your support can help a school blossom with new and exciting adventures in reading, stimulating young minds for years to come.
