The pride could be seen on the students’ faces as they marched down the aisles during Middle School North’s Promotion Ceremony on May 29. The Middle School North Orchestra played “Best of Journey” and the 7/8 Grade Chorus sang “Closer to the Flame.” Members of the Board of Education and Administration presented the certificates. There were some bittersweet moments, and moments of joy as students gathered with friends and family after the ceremony.
There is no school on Friday, May 25th and Monday, May 28th. Enjoy your long weekend!
“I really enjoyed my time at Hawthorn and appreciate all the work the staff does for all our students,” Brown said. “We have great parents, students, staff and community.”

Eighth-grade students at Middle School North learned about a wide variety of careers at today’s Career Fair. Thanks to volunteers, students learned about careers in advertising/sales, cosmetology, fashion design, firefighting, journalism, law, nursing, the military, aviation, programming and real estate.
Eighth-grade students took a walk down memory lane at the Decades Fair hosted by Ms. Balmes and Mr. McKenzie at the Middle School North library. Students were asked to research a decade of American society from the 1950s up to today. In their presentations, the students addressed two objectives: to understand the changes in contemporary American society and to understand how significant events impact society. All students had to research the civil rights movement in their decade, major political policies and key events of the time period. It was clear that the students went the extra mile to present great projects.
