Dear Hayhurst Community!

We have had a great start to the school year! Today is the first day of kindergarten, and now the house is full. Our total school enrollment is sitting at 337 students. We have certainly grown these past few years! We have lots of new staff and lots of new kid faces. Everyone is back into the swing of old and new routines.

Some things for you to know:

*I will be meeting with the staff next week to pick a date for grandparent’s and special friends day, and then let you know when this will be occurring.

*Our Right Brain Artist in Residence, Aaron Nigel Smith, will be doing a music residency at Hayhurst throughout the 2016-17 school year. Aaron will have a rotating schedule, working with each grade level for an hour per week for approximately 10 weeks. Fourth and fifth graders will begin working with Aaron in the fall; he will then move on to the second and third grade classrooms in the winter and kindergarten and first grade classes in the spring. Part of the residency will include meeting with teachers in order to integrate his work into the curriculum. We are all very excited for this opportunity to bring music into the school on a regular basis with a great music teacher.  Read more...
