Communicating Through Multiple Means

The Principal's Blog will be a weekly update that will be posted in the website and sent out via email. It will highlight current information as well as give a peek at what is coming up in the next week. Links to the blog will also be sent out via Facebook and Twitter​ so be sure you "like" or "follow" Hawkwoood School in those social media environments. The intent is to communicate what we are doing, why we are doing it and why it might be of interest to our school community.

Deck the Halls Around the World

Every December our students connect with their big and little buddies to decorate our school creating a very festive atmosphere. This year, buddy classes worked to showcase their diversity throught the following question: How can we represent the diversity in our classrom at this time of the year?

With over 40 different cultures, languages and nationalities represented in our Hawkwood School Community, celebrating our diversity is an important part of creating community.


Scholastic & Used Book Fair

Thank you to everyone for their support of our Fall Scholastic & Used book fair which raised almost $2200 that will support the purchase of many different types of resources for our Learning Commons. We really appreciate all the parent volunteers and staff that helped with many aspects of the book fair including volunteer coordinating, setup, takedown and sales.  We could not do this without all your help!

December 7 Professional Learning Day

On our December 7 Professional Learning Day we focused on integrating learning intentions into our work in Math and Literacy. With each learning task, students should be able to articulate what they are “learning” as opposed to what they are “doing”. They should also be able to indicate how well they are doing on any given task as well as how they know how well they are doing.

The intention behind this is to create learning tasks that engage our students and to have them develop a better understanding of how they learn best.
