    2nd Grade Spooktacular Family Night


    Thank you to Mrs. Pizano, our Family Involvement Liaison, for an outstanding 2nd Grade family night.  Each student who attended received a Hayes bag filled with a book, a pencil, and other goodies.  Students and families listened to Halloween themed stories read by our 2nd Grade teachers; Mrs. Wright, Mrs. Haas, and Ms. Erickson.  There were also hands on stations for 2nd graders to make S’mores snack mix and science station where they made slime using a chemical reaction between borax and white glue!

    Jump into Fall


    On September 26, Hayes hosted the Jump into Fall celebration.  Joe Cathelyn, a PTO parent, donated the use of several inflatable bounce houses and a dunk tank for the day.  Many Hayes families came out for an awesome day of bouncing, dunking Mr. Price and Mrs. Gott, and eating walking tacos and Kona Ice!  Thanks to all who came, and especially to Mr. Cathelyn.  The PTO was able to raise close to $900 for the playground project!
