Please come and join us Wednesday, December 19 at 5:30 in the east gym for the Essex Winter Holiday concert. All grades, kindergarten to grade 8, will be performing this year. Please have your students arrive between 5:00-5:10 to their respective classes. Look forward to having you celebrate with us!

*update from Essex Spring Concert. Though we had photo and video footage taken for all of the great performances, we could not share them as we had hoped with families because we did not receive the media consent forms from all parents.

Thanks and stay warm!

It Was a Monster Mash!

Fiesta Farms has officially cleaned up the corn maze – and the Christmas trees are on the way. Before we say good bye to the Halloween season we want to pause to say WOW and THANK YOU to all the students and families from Hawthorne and Essex who joined us at the Monster Mixer!
We danced, limbo’ed, ate, and got spooked in the haunted house.
It as a blast!
A huge thank you to all the staff and parents who made this event happen.
Thank you to Matt Hawkins who brought us Zorgox – It was incredible!
Thank you to the grade 7/8 students who did an amazing job decorating.
Thank you to Glenn and his road crew who built us an amazing DJ booth.
 Shout out’s to Dar and Alyssa who DJ’ed and the student volunteers from Harbord Collegiate.
Can’t wait till next year!
– Melissa, School Council Chair
