Operation School Bell is a program that assists Hawthorne students by providing one set of new school clothes per school year. Students go to Operation School Bell on a bus from school with a district volunteer, where they can pick out clothing items. This is a free program open to any Hawthorne student who needs clothing and who qualifies for Free/Reduced Lunch.
If you would like your child to go to Operation School Bell, you will need to fill out a service request form and a field trip permission slip. You can ask for these forms in the main office at Hawthorne. Your child can also talk to the office, his or her teacher, or the Family Support Specialist to request the forms.
Appointments are scheduled based on student need, the availability of volunteers, and Operation School Bell's schedule. Operation School Bell serves all of Everett, as well as some of the surrounding community, so it may take several weeks to get an appointment.
Operation School Bell starts in September and usually ends in January.
If you have any questions, please contact the Family Support Specialist at 425-385-4610 or the main office at 425-385-4600. Thank you!
