Where can you find Anne Frank, Wayne Gretzky, Hamilton, Mother Teresa and King Tut all under one roof? At the Elementary North Bio Museum. Fourth-graders researched and dressed up as famous people in sports, arts, entertainment, and history. They had fun telling visitors all about their characters. All the grades at Elementary North were invited to spend some time at the Bio Museum.
“I really enjoyed my time at Hawthorn and appreciate all the work the staff does for all our students,” Brown said. “We have great parents, students, staff and community.”

There’s a jungle at Elementary North thanks to speech therapist Kim Lasare. She is one of 30 teachers participating in a professional development program that utilizes a book club format. The teachers are now on their second book entitled “Wild Card: Seven Steps to an Educator’s Creative Breakthrough.” Inspired by the book, she transformed a classroom into a prehistoric rainforest, replete with a river, cave and lava flow. Dressed as an explorer, she guided students through the treacherous terrain until they reached safety, where they used flashlights to read “Dinosaurs Before Dark.”
Students from Vernon Hills High School came to Elementary North as part of the VHHS Day of Service. They read to students and assisted with writing and research projects. They also helped with recess and lunch. Some of the students were on familiar ground since they were former Hawthorn students. Now, they are role models. Many thanks to the high school students for giving back to the community.
