Classroom Treats
Due to food allergies at this time we do not allow treats to be brought in for birthday celebrations.  We suggest pencils or stickers.  On party days treats may be brought in.  All treats must be checked by the clinic before going into the classroom.
 
School Visits
We always encourage family members to visit school at any time.  We find children always enjoy this special treat, and these visits help demonstrate your interests in their schooling.  Research has proven the more involved and active parents are in their children's education, the more likely children will reach their full potential.  For safety reasons, please stop at the office to pick up a visitor's badge that must be worn while at school.
 
Classroom Visits
If you would like to cisit the classroom, as a courtesy please make prior arrangements with your child's teacher.  Conferemces should also be scheduled ahead rather than trying to talk with the teacher while class is going on.  This will help protect instruction time.
 
Breakfast
You may come any day for breakfast.
 
Lunch
You are welcome to come and have lunch with your child.  If you are ordering a school lunch you can call the office at 636-474-3999to place your order.  You are welcome to bring lunch for your child, we do ask that you do not bring treats for any other students.
 
Volunteer
Hawthorn Elementary welcomes all parents and community members to share their time with our students.  Please contact your child's teacher or the office to set up any volunteer opportunities. All volunteers must have a volunteer request form and backround check on file with the office.  This form is done yearly.
 
Events
There is always something going on at Hawthorn Elementary.  You can check out our newsletter, calendar or find our PTO on facebook.
 
Lost and Found
All lost items are placed in our lost in found.  This is cleaned out quarterly and all unclaimed items are donated to service agencies in the area.   Please have your student check lost and found regularly for any missing items.
 
Inclement Weather
In the event of severe weather the FZSD may choose to cancel school for the day or dismiss the students early from school.  The district uses the School Messenger System to alert parents to school closings.
