Pep Assembly 5/25/17

On Thursday, May 25th Middle South held their annual Year End Spring Pep Assembly.  During the assembly the band entertained the crowd, the softball team, track team and the girl’s soccer team were announced.  A competitive game of musical chairs was played by a group of 6th, 7th and 8th grade teachers.  We honored our retiring teachers, Mrs. Bogenschutz, Mr. Floeter, Mr. Koch and Mr. Tamasauskas.  To end the assembly, four teachers were chosen by the students to have a pie put in their face.

Summer Reading Program

We have created a Summer Reading Program to motivate every student enrolled at Hawthorn Middle Schools to read over the summer.  The purpose of this year’s Summer Reading Program is to encourage our students to want to read.  We feel that allowing students to choose what they read will increase their enjoyment and foster life-long readers.
