“These ladies are awesome to work with! They were so helpful AND FLEXIBLE when I asked if we could have sack lunches made for EVERY classroom to accommodate a special family lunch on Friday, March 16. No problem, they just make it happen. During the week of March 19, Hawthorn celebrated Reading Week. Each day had a special theme and dress. These ladies were amazing in their participation and costuming. For each day students were so excited to see how our kitchen staff would be dressed..... from Nerd Day and Book Character Day to Hollywood and Super Lakers -- no one brought more energy and enthusiasm than these gals! Those are just two specific examples of how Sue, Kellie, Kelsey, and Billie contribute to the Hawthorn experience. They make sure students are well fed, and just as importantly noticed and cared for,” states Hawthorn Principal Todd Shockley.
