Note from the Principal's Desk

Greetings Parents and Stakeholders,

January has come to an end. The days are getting longer and hopefully the weather will start to get warmer. We are doing another round of check ins next week for the students of E.J. Hayes. 5th graders will take tests on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. 4th Graders will test on Tuesday and Wednesday, and 3rd graders will test on Monday and Tuesday. Please make sure your children get a good night sleep and are ready to do their best in the mornings. And, once again, thank you for choosing E.J. Hayes, where relationships foster learning!
