A Message from the Principal
Feb. 25, 2014
Dear Families,We are pleased that Hayhurst is competing in the Oregon State Battle of the Books program again this year. Students have been meeting after school since November to prepare for the tournament. The Battle of the Books is an exciting tournament of reading for students in grades 3 – 12 grades. Click here for more information. We have formed teams of 4-5 players. Among them, they have read the list of 16 books prescribed by the royal court of the Oregon Battle of Books. The team who wins the school battles will move on to compete against other "kingdoms" in our area at the regional competition in March. This program is designed to encourage kids to read and discuss books with their friends. All teams will demonstrate character and good sportsmanship. They will win with grace and lose with dignity. We are grateful for Mrs. Aalto and Mrs. Dowling for coaching the teams!
