June 2015

Dear Hayhurst and Odyssey Community,

It is so hard to believe that the 2014-15 school year has flown by and we are wrapping things up for the school year. While at the same time, we are getting ready for the new year ahead.

This has been a productive, exciting, and a busy year of learning. We have added many new students to our school, built lots of new relationships, and filled all the spaces for learning opportunities.

This summer the school will close on June 16th for bond work. We are receiving a new roof, new science room for 6.7.8 and seismic updating. This means the building will be closed, fenced, and un-accessible for the summer. The plan is that the building will reopen on August 24th for the first day when teachers return.

The first day of school for students in grades 1-8 will be on Thursday, August 27. Kindergarten will start on Tuesday, September 1st. This only gives the teachers a few days to get back and get rooms set up prior to the students arriving…and then the fun begins again.  Read more....

Welcome to Hayhurst!

at our school.  We hope you enjoy it!

THE DREAM BIG PROJECT

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.
