Dear Hayhurst/Odyssey Community,

Wow! This year has certainly flown by. I always think the beginning of the year is the busiest time, and then it comes to the end of the year and we are in full swing. This year as we wrap up, the emotions of our school growing and moving into two buildings puts a different feeling in the air. We are all feeling the excitement that comes with a new school, the sadness of not working with our full staff on a daily basis, and the unknown of what will the fall be like for each school. Then begins the packing and moving that is occurring with all of the staff. Within our current building or to the new East Sylvan campus. We certainly have many events occurring in the next few weeks, such as the Volunteer Tea in the café on June 1st at 2:30, Hullabaloo family fun on Friday, June 3 from 5:30-7:30pm and ending the last week with 5th grade neighborhood promotion (June 9 @9:30am) and 8th grade Odyssey promotion (June 7@1:00pm). Neighborhood move up day on June 7th too meet next years teacher. On Thursday, June 9th we will have a BYO lunch picnic in the park, followed by fun games for the entire school…we want to end the year with fun and games!

This is also the time of year that I begin the hiring process for the year ahead. We still have several openings at Hayhurst, and I look forward to bringing in more staff to join our fabulous team. The following is a current list of who will be teaching which grades at this point.  Read more...
