    1st Quarter Academic and Attendance Awards


    Wow!  What a great 1st quarter of school for Hayes Students!  To celebrate all of the great things happening so far at Hayes, many students earned certificates of achievement.  We awarded the Green and Growing Award to 246 students who scored at grade level on at least one area of our FAST Academic Screener.  Students in grades 1-5 take the screener in the areas of math, reading fluency, and reading comprehension.  86 of our students in grades 1-5 were at grade level in all three areas!

    Hayes is very fortunate to have access to the ST Math program.  ST

    5th Grade Goes to Space Camp


    Hayes Elementary School 5th graders read about Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama this school year through the Treasure’s Reading Series and decided to fundraise enough money to send 21 students to the camp in June.  The 5th grade teachers, Carey Smysor, Lisa Whalen, and Stacy Smith went with the students and expanded their learning on space exploration through this incredible experience!

    3rd Grade Swimming Lessons


    Hayes Elementary School’s third graders were fortunate enough to take 8-free sessions of water safety and education at the Davenport Downtown YMCA this May.  All students were able to grow through these outstanding swimming classes thanks to a special grant funded project.  A special thank you to the Davenport YMCA for their partnership and support of the Davenport Community School District!
