Note from the Principal's Desk

Greetings Parents and Stakeholders,

We had an amazing first week of school. Thank you for your patience with transportation, drop off, and pick up. Things are moving in a much smoother way and everyone is picking up the routines and procedures quickly and easily. Please try your best to check your child's bookbag for information nightly. We also want to make certain that you are receiving phone calls from the school. A weekly phone call always goes out at 7:00pm every Sunday night. Please do not hesitate to contact me and let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I have really enjoyed watching your students learn and grow this week! Let us all do our part to come to school as often as possible so that we might maximize our educational experience. Thank you for choosing E.J. Hayes: Where relationships foster learning!
