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.

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent-teacher conferences are on Thursday, April 4 and on Friday, April 5. We will dismiss students at 12:30 p.m. on both days. Our faculty really values this opportunity to share good news about the many ways the children are growing and to collaborate with parents to improve their learning. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy work days to participate in these important conferences.

Pirate Day

The Hawlemont Literacy Committee is hosting a pirate day on Friday, April 12. We encourage students and staff to dress like pirates. Corinne Demas and Artemis Roehrig, authors of ?Are Pirates Polite? and Pirates Go to School, ?will be here to meet with the students. Be on the lookout for more details. 

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!

Our Rural Schools Story

This video is part of an advocacy effort that Mohawk-Hawlemont is leading to address the specific needs of Massachusetts rural public schools. We are advocating for a change in the Chapter 70 state education funding formula that would result in an annual increase of $372,000 to Mohawk and $37,200 to Hawlemont.

On Thursday, February 7, rural public school students from across Massachusetts will visit the statehouse as part of a real life civics effort to advocate for this vital funding.

We encourage you to share this video with others. We need to communicate our rural voice widely and loudly so that political leadership in Eastern Massachusetts listens and takes action.
