“The world offers you comfort, but you were not made for comfort. You were made for GREATNESS.”
– Pope Benedict XVI
Dear Families and Friends of Hawthorn School for Girls,
We are honoured to introduce ourselves as the 2022-2023 Annual Donation Campaign Family. As members of the school community for the past six years, we are blessed to have found in Hawthorn School a GREAT match for our daughter, Isabella, and our whole family.
The unique combination of a rigorous academic program with a mentor-based character education is truly the highlight of the Hawthorn experience. As Isabella mentioned in the video, she comes to school every day knowing that she will be taught by incredible teachers in a supportive environment.
In keeping with its purpose, the Annual Donation Campaign will enable continued professional development, increased program enhancements, and needed infrastructure improvements. This year’s Annual Donation Campaign expenditures will continue to enhance Hawthorn’s “GREATNESS”.
This year’s goal of $180,000 is only attainable with the support of the entire Hawthorn community. We are pleased to announce an anonymous donation of $10,000 that we hope will be matched by any individual or group donation. Please remember that all donations, regardless of size, will help us reach 100% participation.
Our campaign will kick off on Giving Tuesday which is Tuesday, November 29th, 2022. Donations can be made online at hawthornschool.com/donate or through the Hawthorn Finance Office.
As our daughters have comfortably settled into the school year at Hawthorn, let us show them and ourselves that, together, GREATNESS can be achieved.
Eric, Maria, Isabella, Jack and Philip Arruda
