Class Act Family Concert at Hawes
Our kids are so fortunate to be able to participate in the Class Act program at Hawes, which exposes them to classical music. On March 18th from 7 to 8 PM in our activity room, Hawes resident musician, Nancy Eldridge, will be performing a free concert featuring the works of Leonard Bernstein. Please join us to show Ms. Edlridge how much Hawes values musical education!
9th Annual HBCSD Student Art Exhibit
We all know that we have some very talented students at Hawes, but it's a treat when their talents are recognized by our district! on Friday, March 27th, some works of art created by our very own Hawes Hawks will be on display at the Huntington Beach Art Center from 5-7 PM. Please come and support them!
Thanks for WIGGIN' OUT with us! Here's what happened!
We hope you all had a good time wiggin' out at the Hawes Spring Fling - we sure enjoyed seeing all of you let your hair down (so to speak). Thanks to your amazing support, we had our most successful Spring Fling ever!
Our Spring Fling committee members secured an insane amount of donation items! Thanks to their efforts and your generosity, the silent auction raised $34,000, the live auction raised $5,650 and the raffle raised $1,200. All told, we raised over $40,000 that will go directly to our students. We will immediately be purchasing 5 Chromebooks so that Hawes has a full class set. The PTA will meet with school administration in the near future to determine how best to use the remainder of the funds to support our students.
We are the envy of our school district, and we should be! We wanted to share a few highlights of the generosity we witnessed.
- Many employees of the Hilton and our auction company asked what private school we were. When we told them we were a public school, they were blown away!
- The silent auction was open to the community, and we had several Hawes' alumni bid on and win items even though they no longer have students at Hawes. Once a Hawes Hawk, always a Hawes Hawk.
- Who says social media is a waste of time? One auction winner heard about the auction on Facebook and spent over $1,200! Another winner drove up from Ladera Ranch to pick up his winnings totaling $800! Neither winner has a student attending Hawes!
- We received unprecedented support from the Hawes staff this year, with many in attendance and several winning auction items. Mrs. Jennings won the Taylor Swift concert tickets!
Thank you so much for all that you do to support our students. We are humbled, we are grateful, and most importantly, WE ARE HAWES!
Hawes Locks of Love Cut-a-Thon!
Attention Hawes students and parents! Do you have a heart for helping other kids? Do you think that you could grow your hair long enough to donate 10 inches to a child in need? Then join 4th grade student, Katie T. for Hawes' Cut-a-Thon! This May local stylists will be donating their time to cut participants' hair and all of the ponytails will be donated to Locks of Love.
Locks of Love is a non-profit organization that makes wigs for kids who have hair loss due to a long term medical condition. Your support in this effort will help a
deserving child feel normal again.
