Dear Hayhurst/Odyssey Community,

Happy Summer!!! Even though it is just the beginning of summer, it certainly feels like it is flying by already. Thank you all for a great 2013-14 school year! I am getting ready for the new year, which will be here right around the corner.

I would like to welcome two new staff members to our school team. Mrs. Dawn Schlegel will be joining us as the assistant principal. This past spring she was at Hayhurst for her administrative practicum, so she will be a familiar face when you all return. She is thrilled to be part of our community.
I would also like to welcome Mrs. Katharine Eichman, as the new neighborhood second grade teacher. She is filled with energy and excitement, and I am very pleased that she will be a member of our staff.

I wish all of you a great summer, remember to read and practice your math, and even do a little writing too!

I look forward to seeing you at “dinner with the principal” on August 27th, and of course on the first day of school – September 2nd!!

Happy Summer!!

Deanne Froehlich

This is not necessarily the playground we will install.

The Dream Big Project is a collaborative effort of Hayhurst children, parents, teachers and the surrounding community, working together to design, fund, and build an innovative, imaginative and durable playground that will replace the existing (decades-old) structure and be enjoyed by all in the community.
