These students' poems were selected to be published by Creative Publications' Regional Spring poetry contest: 4th graders Meredith Baker, Sophia Brown, Kayln Gunn, Sam Kapotas, Jack Kevin, Jane Marlott, Anna McGrail, Ava Passarelli, Jonathon Szala and 5th graders Anais Boutin, Jack Burns, Aidan Costanzo, Annie Do, Liam Jordan, Adam Marti, Ruth Mathew, Megan Manganaro, Nicholas Musgrave, Michael Rimington, and Laney Toffler. Having 20 poems selected is quite unusual and we are proud to showcase them.

Grade 4 LA Expressways students wrote sonnets in the style of William Shakespeare. Sonnets have a very particular rhythm and rhyme scheme and can be difficult, but fun, to master. Please click to enjoy reading ours.

Fifth graders wrote free verse poems, based on a musical piece. Please read one or all with the accompanying music. To do so, open the poem here and select their Internet music link. Play the song while you read the poem and treat yourself to the creativity of our poets. Enjoy! Congratulations to our published poets!

Outdoor Classroom News

The cooler temperatures have told the 3rd graders that it is time to harvest the vegetables and herbs that they planted last spring when they were 2nd graders.  Their eyes popped out when they saw the size of the carrots that had grown from a very tiny seed!  The vegetables will now become a hearty vegetable soup for them to enjoy.  Special thanks to the 2nd and 3rd grade teachers that work so hard to make this special literature adventure possible!

October 13th was a cool and cloudy day, but excitement was in the air as it was the day for dedicating our Sharing Library in the Outdoor Classroom.  Student Council President Jack Burns shared words of thanks on behalf of all the children at Hawthorne. Vice-President Evan Montella was the Master of Ceremonies.  He introduced the 3rd and 5th grade student reps as they shared poetry about libraries and books. The Hawthorne Girl Scouts shared a Flag Ceremony with everyone. Secretary Emma Coyte and Treasurer Will Fischer presented the builder of the library, Amanda Strezo, will a small thank you gift.  Dr. Moyer and many of Amanda's teachers from Hawthorne were at the ceremony to congratulate her on this wonderful accomplishment and gift to Hawthorne.  We all look forward to enjoying the library for years to come.

Just last week, Mrs. Engbers had the kindergartners and their 4th grade buddies from Mr. Rufus' room out in the classroom observing the changes that are happening because it is FALL!  How fun to be able to outside and view a variety of changing leaves, seed pods and maybe even some Outdoor Classroom insect residents.
