    Good evening Hawfields families.  It is hard to believe that our school year is coming to an end. I want to thank everyone for your continued support throughout the year and I wish each of you a fun-filled summer break from school. The last few days are quite busy beginning with our field day and PBIS reward day during the school day tomorrow.  If your child owes library books/fines, textbooks and/or cafeteria fees, the accounts need to be taken care of before field day begins. Your child has been given several notices if he/she owes any money for anything, so please ask your child if there are any outstanding accounts. I also want to invite you to attend the events that involve your children.  The athletic banquet is Wednesday evening at 6:00.  We will be recognizing the accomplishments of our student athletes.  On Thursday evening, we will be presenting our 8th grade academic achievements for this school year, as well as the 3-year academic awards.  This program begins at 7:00.  You must have a ticket to attend this program.  On Friday, we will have our end-of-the awards programs for our 7th grade at 9:00 and 6th grade at 10:30.  Please note that we have a 2-hour early release on Friday.  Students will be dismissed at 1:25.  Once again, have a safe summer and we will see you soon.

    Good evening Hawfields' families.  I want to remind everyone that end-of-grade tests begin for students tomorrow morning. 

    • Once again, we will be collecting cell phones and all other electronic devices before testing begins and returning them to students after testing has been completed. If you or your child do not want your child's phone collected by his/her teacher, the phone should be left at home on Wed. and Thurs.  If a child is caught with an electronic device, they will have to be removed from testing and will have to take a different test on a separate day.  
    • As before all major testing, please make sure your child gets to bed early, eats a good breakfast and arrives on time.  
    • No students are allowed to enter the testing room after testing begins so it is important that all students arrive by 8:10.  
    • If a student leaves early, he/she will have to take the entire test over on a separate day, so please do not check your child out early on these days. 
    Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to help proctor for us for the state testing. We appreciate your support.  Thank you and have a great evening.

    Good afternoon Hawfields families. Please remember that Monday is a teacher workday and our teachers will be involved in staff development all day. I also want to remind all parents that our student planners are an effective method of communication between school and home. Students should be writing their homework in the planners and parents can see how many signatures and stamps their child has received. I want to thank you for your continued support.

    Good afternoon Hawfields' families.  I wanted to inform you that we conducted an emergency drill this afternoon.  The drill enabled us to identify how our students and staff would react in an emergency situation.  We feel that the drill was successful and we will use the information we gathered to improve our response in the event that we have to implement the plan in a real situation.  If you have questions, feel free to talk to an administrator or counselor.  Thank you for your support and have a great weekend.

    Good evening Hawfields families.  I want to wish each of you a Happy New Year! I hope everyone is relaxed and has had a great winter break.  I want to remind everyone that school will resume on Wednesday, January 2nd.  I have been told that one of the local papers printed the incorrect date for students to return  and I want to clarify that students and teachers will return on Wednesday.  Once again Happy New Year and thank you for your continued support.
