Teachers and Staff Come Together for Opening Day Program

Hundreds of teachers and staff came together on August 21 for the annual Hawthorn District 73 Opening Day program. After a breakfast in the Townline Elementary School cafeteria, Superintendent Nick Brown welcomed everyone to the beginning of the new school year, mentioning how excited he and the staff were to see everyone again. The program included introductions of new teachers and staff, recognition of teachers and staff with new degrees, and remarks from HEA President John Langelund and PTO President Wendy Elman.  Several parents gave moving speeches about the import role that Hawthorn teachers had played in their children’s lives.
