Dear Hayhurst/Odyssey Community,

Thank you very much for a Fabulous Community Care Day!!!  We had over 100 volunteers who picked weeds, trimmed, pruned, and spread bark dust over our flower beds, we now look like we are really back in shape after a summer of construction. Thank you!

We have had a great smooth start to the school year, and tomorrow we welcome our kindergarten students and then the house will be full!  We have many new faces and have added a third neighborhood kindergarten class to our building. The neighborhood is certainly growing with many young families buying houses, which always creates an exciting time for a community.  I would like to welcome Ms. Kelsey Williams to our staff as the new kindergarten teacher.  Half of the library will be our new   classroom for the additional kindergarten and Mrs. Dowling is organizing the other half to get ready for library and check out.  Everyone is working together to support each other as we grow.  This is a great staff and a wonderful community and your children are getting a fabulous education!

I look forward to seeing all of you at Back to School night on September 16 at 6pm.

Community Care Day


Hayhurst's 15th annual Community Care Day was a huge success! With over 100 volunteers, we beautified the school grounds, cleaned up the courtyard and prepared the garden for fall planting. Thank you!


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.
