Interested in Joining PTA?

As all Hawthorn Families are welcomed back to school, whether online or in person, you are invited to become a member of the PTA by registering here: Members have a vote in Hawthorn PTA matters and can volunteer and engage as much or as little as you like.  

In preparing for the school year ahead, your Hawthorn PTA has been working on safe, socially-distant family activities (see list in calendar below); helping to fulfill our teacher’s wish lists for their classrooms; creating an online Spirit Store; and welcoming students and teachers back with school yard signs.

We’re also working on new ideas for virtual learning adventures to replace the traditional community-gathering school events or field trips of previous years. We’re interested in your ideas, too, and hope you will join us at one of the upcoming PTA meetings (see list in calendar below) on Zoom or share your feedback at, on Facebook at Hawthorn Elementary PTA or Instagram @hawthorn_pta.

Additionally, your PTA membership pays for resources for the school, the Care Fund for families in need, District, State and National PTA dues, and more.

Whatever school might look like for you in the year ahead, we are glad you are part of the Hawthorn Family. Stronger Together.
