New Snow Day Extended Learning Pilot Program
The pilot program for an alternative to snow-day make-up days has been accepted for this school year, for up to five snow days during the period from January 16th through April 1st. Instead of making up those days at the end of June, students will be given a variety of assignments that are designed to be done relatively independently and, depending on the type of assignment, will be due sometime after the snow days. Students may work on the assignments during the snow days or choose to complete them afterwards, especially if they need help or clarification from staff. The links here are to documents from the snow day committee and offer specific information about the program. Snow Day Extended Learning links: Overview, FAQ, PowerPoint slides from the school committee presentation.

8th Grade Washington DC Trip
All forms are due for the 8th grade trip to Washington DC. Students will not be allowed to pick roommates (Monday after vacation) if all paperwork is not complete. Final payment to Capital Tours is past due. Anyone who has not paid, and is still planning to go, should contact the travel company to set up a payment plan as soon as possible. This year, because we have two full busses (instead of the usual 2+), we have a waiting list of students who would like to go. In order to be as fair as possible, slots of students who do not pay in full or don’t make arrangements with the travel company will be offered to students on the waiting list.

HB Yearbook
The Hawthorne Brook yearbook is now on sale. The 80 page hardcover yearbook will include: school portraits, collages from each grade, clubs and sports teams, as well as school events and extracurricular activities. Don’t miss out on these great middle school memories! The order form is here.

Nashoba Tech High School Interviews
Nashoba Tech interviews will be Feburary 28th for 8th grade applicants. Any questions, please call Ms. Morales or Mrs. Dupuis

Homework Club
The Homework Club is an after school opportunity for students who would benefit from a structured setting, with a HB staff member available to support them, as they worked on homework, studying, or long term projects. We have found this to be very worthwhile for some middle school students because it can take away some of the usual stress that comes with homework time at home for a couple of days per week.The sessions are on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30-4:00 PM and run in approximately 5-6 week periods. Click here for a permission slip and more information.

This is a cost share program.
Contact Ms. Dupuis or Ms. Morales for more information.

French Club
French Club meetings are open to any HB student interested in learning more about the French language and culture, or those who plan to take French at the high school. French Club will meet during AE on Day 2 in Madame Le Grand's room.  

Math Club
The Math Club meets after school Mondays until 3:30PM. Attendance is flexible and a student can start the year, take a break, and then begin again. The goal of the club is to have fun with math, even students who haven’t had a lot of success with math. For students who like competition, the club will be entering the regional MathCounts competition. The club will prepare for the competition while still being fun and appropriate for all students, even those who don’t wish to compete. Click here for a permission slip. 

Morning Breakfast
HB offers morning breakfast for students from 7:30 until  7:55AM.

Free and Reduced Price School Meals
The application for free and reduced-price lunch and breakfast can be found here and on the Food Services link on the left. Families can apply throughout the year as incomes change. Contact Michelle Nee at 978.433.0114 with questions.

Robotics Club
The Robotics club meets after school on Wednesdays until 3:30PM.  The team will build a robot and train for the Botball competition at UMass Lowell. Space is limited to 10-15 students who are committed and are willing to work as a team. The competition involves building and programming robots, with specified materials, to navigate a course autonomously. No experience is necessary. Students are the ones who take the responsibility to teach and organize the club with support from the coach.
