Hayes Elementary Weekly Newsletter

August 19, 2020

A Message from Mrs. Mulcahy

We hope everyone had a wonderful first day of school! It has been exciting to see teachers engaging with our Hawks virtually.

If you were unable to pick up your bag during “Grab and Go”, please let your child’s teacher know and arrangements will be made for you to pick up needed items.

As our students embark on their on-line learning, we invite you to post any pictures of online learning of your child on Twitter and include #HayesHawks and @hayeshawks in your tweets. Posted pictures will be considered for yearbook as well. This is also a great way to stay connected to what is going on at JHE each day. JHE weekly e-News newsletters will be sent regularly on Wednesday of each week. We may also have a few extra newsletters as we get school started. Thanks for your attention to these communications and staying connected to JHE.

It’s going to be a great year! Go Hawks!

Upcoming Dates to Remember

Upcoming Dates:

Aug 19th: 1st day of school for all students (KVA and In-Person)

Sept 7th: Labor Day- No school

Sept 8th: First day of In-Person Instruction

Parent Technology Support

We realize that parents are going to need support with helping their child navigate virtual learning for their child. The district is offering information zoom sessions for parents. This is for KVA parents and In-Person students who will be doing the intermittent remote learning.

Click here to register. Note that the recording will be available as well if you can’t make one of these live sessions.

Counselor Corner

Welcome back to school! As we return, it will be important for parents and teachers to work as a team to identify students who might be at a higher risk for adjustment difficulties. We hope that most of our students have had time to adjust to the new normal, but we can expect that some students will struggle to adjust as they return to school. Please complete the form below if you have a child who is struggling with the return to school:

COVID-19 Impact on Students - JHE

JHE PTA - Welcome Back Hayes Hawks!

We are excited to get back to school and can’t wait to start our new year with you! JHE PTA has started a new website that will allow you to keep up with all things PTA. You can order your Spirit-Wear and PTA Membership, sign up to volunteer, donate, and receive newsletters, and so much more. With your PTA membership, you will also gain access to our online directory. This will be a great benefit especially now with KVA and distance learning. For more information, visit our PTA website at https://jhepta.membershiptoolkit.com

Our spirit shirts are ready for pre-order. If you like to avoid tax, we will have all of our Spirit Shirts and Time Trackers on sale for tax-free prices, one day only on August 28th. (All school supplies ordered through JHE PTA come with a Time Tracker)

In light of the current events, Hayes Elementary PTA is going to sell Hayes themed masks in lieu of our annual check writing fundraiser. We will be selling masks, neck gators, and hand sanitizer on our website.
