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.
