Opening Day for Hawthorn Staff

Wednesday’s “Opening Day” program brought hundreds of Hawthorn teachers and staff together under one roof. Superintendent Pete Hannigan presented the District’s goals and priorities for the new school year. Board of Education President Robin Cleek, as well as members of the Hawthorn Education Association and the Hawthorn PTO, also addressed the audience. Dr. Dennis King spoke about building a Professional Learning Community. The event put everyone on the same page — ready to inspire, challenge and motivate students as the new school year begins.
