Pennies and a Puppy
When the Hawthorn Student Council decided to run a "Pennies for Paws" penny drive to raise money for the 5 Acres Animal Shelter in St. Charles no one imagined they'd raise almost $800 but that's exactly what they and their fellow students at Hawthorn did! 
Thanks to all the donations that came in the 5 Acres Animal Shelter will be able to better meet the needs of the animals in their care. According to their sponsor, Mrs. Klaesner, the students at Hawthorn worked together in grade level teams to raise the money and by adding in the promise of a Popsicle party for the grade levels bringing in the most money, a healthy competition for a good cause was born and thanks to the efforts of our Student Council members the final results are in!

Below are the final results by grade level teams:
Kindergarten and First grade - $330.96 
Second and Third Grade - $328.61 
Fourth and Fifth Grade - $93.69. 
Altogether the students and families at Hawthorn collected $753.26. Way to go Hawthorn Hawks, this school really does rock!
