Hawthorn’s school day goes from 8:00 to 3:33. After school activities are available Monday through Thursday from dismissal to 4:45. Our school year runs from August 15 to June 2, a total of 181 instructional days.
Hawthorn’s “Summer Bridge” is an opportunity for incoming students to gather for three days before the beginning of the school year. Summer Bridge is a time to make new friends, meet our teachers, get used to new routines and expectations and have a ton of fun! This year our Summer Bridge was August 8, 9 and 10
We have 10 early release Fridays throughout the year. School is dismissed at 12:30 to allow time for faculty professional development. Washington University provides enrichment activities through its “InvestiGirls” program for students who wish to stay for the afternoon on early release days. Students must sign up at the front office to attend InvestiGirls.
