    Congratulations to 102 Hayes Elementary students who have completed over half of the ST Math program this school year!  5 of these 102 students have completed the entire program.  ST Math is an interactive Math program designed to meet students where they are in their math skills, and provide reinforcement for those skills.  However, if you ask Hayes students they will tell you they like ST Math because it is fun!  Hayes would like to thank Math Curriculum Specialist Alissa Hansel and Mind Research for bringing the ST Math program to our school.
