More details and early bird specials will head home soon! 

Spring Sports

Various team sports will be using Hawlemont’s fields this spring. Hawlemont will be hosting four baseball teams and one girls softball team. Tee ball will be practicing afterschool on Tuesdays. Majors will be practicing after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The softball team will be practicing after school on Monday and Wednesdays. Coach Hicks is planning a cleanup day for the fields, be watching for the date.

News from the School Nurse

Letters have gone home with students that will be needing updated physical exams and or immunizations for the next school year. We send out the letter early in the spring to allow parents to make physical exam appointments in a timely manner that fits with your child’s doctor’s busy schedule, summer vacation, and the medical insurance regulations. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the health office at (413) 339.8316 ext 2. Or email the nurse to discuss your concerns.

MCM Fundraiser

We would like to say thanks to all the families that supported the MCM fundraiser. Sales by students were over $3,500. The school received $1,552 in profits. This profit will go towards future Nature’s Classroom trips.

Kids in Concert

Don't miss out on our kids in concert! This annual event is a great showcase for our fourth, fifth, and sixth graders that participate in band and chorus. The music students from our five elementary schools practice together and then have a performance at Mohawk on Thursday, May 2 at 6:30 p.m. Rehearsal for band students takes place on Thursday, April 4 from 1:00 until 4:00 p.m. Rehearsal for chorus students takes place on Friday, April 5 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. On Wednesday, May 1 there will be a full rehearsal from 1:30 until 4:30 p.m. These rehearsals take place at Mohawk. We will bus students from Hawlemont to Mohawk. Parents are responsible for pick up at Mohawk. If your child has an interest in performing and did not receive a permission slip, please have them pick one up at school.

MCAS Testing

Third, fourth, and sixth graders need to take two sessions for both math and ELA. Fifth graders have two sessions for both ELA, math, and science. It's important for students to arrive at school on time and be well rested. Please make note of the dates on your family calendar. You can find the dates in our March 21, 2019 newsletter.

Nature’s Classroom Fundraisers

There will be a prize-a-day calendar fundraiser with the proceeds going towards the current fourth and fifth graders’ trip to Nature’s Classroom in September. The calendars will be $5.00 each. We have baskets displayed in front of the office. Fourth and fifth graders will be bringing home the calendars to sell!

Ms. Sinistore will be organizing a carwash during the Hawlemont Celebration on May 10. We will need students to help wash cars that evening!

We are still looking for fourth and fifth grade families to organize fundraisers! A great one is a spaghetti dinner/movie night. If you would like to lead a fundraiser, please let Mr. Bechtel, Mrs. Clark, the office, or Mrs. Sinistore know.

Nature’s Classroom will be September 9 to 13. We are already looking forward to it! Thank you for your support in helping us prepare!
