Hawthorn Enrichment Institute

The Hawthorn Enrichment Institute summer program is open to all kindergarten through eighth-grade Hawthorn District 73 students. It will take place from July 9 – August 10, 2018.  Registration begins February 1, 2018.

Mrs.Masini’s 7th grade social studies class utilized Paula Kluth’s “walk-it-to-know-it” to prepare for their assessment on the events that led to the Revolutionary War.      

James (Mac) McRae and Guitar Club Sponsor, Mr Crandall, put on a morning concert for 700 plus students at MSS while they waited for the day to start.  The duo rocked it!

Today at Middle School South, the 7th Grade Social Studies Team created their “Walking Billboard” to showcase the essential question for their unit that leads up to The American Revolution. As students entered the classrooms they were to discuss with each other the reasons for a society to revolt and connect those ideas back to the events leading to the war.
