Clarification About Today’s Drill

As you know, Hawthorn District 73 schedules drills throughout the year to ensure our schools are prepared for emergencies and other events. This morning a drill took place at Townline Elementary and the School of Dual Language. While a parent posted on Facebook that this was an actual lockdown, this was only a drill. While we encourage community engagement on our Facebook page, please contact the school prior to posting information about events such as drills to ensure the information on our Facebook page is correct.

Como usted sabe, el Distrito Hawthorn #73 programa simulacros durante el año escolar para asegurar que nuestras escuelas estén preparadas para emergencias y otros eventos. Esta mañana se llevó a cabo un simulacro en la Escuela Elemental Townline y en la Escuela de Lenguaje Dual. Un padre publicó en Facebook que se trataba de un cierre de emergencia real, esto fue solo un simulacro. Nosotros alentamos la participación de la comunidad en nuestra página de Facebook, por favor antes de publicar información sobre eventos, comuníquese con la escuela para garantizar que la información en nuestra página de Facebook sea correcta.

Trench Warfare

Students Learn about Trench Warfare

As the alarm bell sounded, you could hear the students yelling “Gas! Gas! Gas!” as the students in Mr. McKenzie and Ms. Balmes’ eighth-grade social studies classes learned about life in the trenches during World War I. The students were filled with high anticipation as they entered a mock Trench Warfare Simulation. Some students, armed with their homemade gas masks, were very prepared after reading selections of the book “All Quiet on the Western Front” by Erich Remarque. They learned about the turmoil endured by the soldiers and left class that day with a greater appreciation for those who served our nation during that time.

Taking a stand

What Would You Stand for to Help Others?

Middle School North’s seventh-grade advisory students participated in an activity where they discussed the attributes of being a hero. The students were asked what they would stand for to help others.
