E.J. Hayes Weekly Newsletter

March 11, 2022

Note from the Principal's Desk

Greetings Parents and Stakeholders,

It was so good to see everyone over the past few days. Thank you for coming out to support our students and our teachers. We are all part of the team to educate students, teach them about social norms, and prepare them for the future. Book Fair starts next week. All students will visit the book fair on Monday for a preview day. Things can be purchased starting on Tuesday. Please do not check your child out of school to attend the book fair. The book fair will be open from 7:30 to 8:00 before school and 3:00-4:00 after school. The school board made a decision for Martin County to now make masks optional for students and staff. This took place as of last Tuesday. Thank you for all you do for E.J. Hayes: Where relationships foster learning.


Mr. Myers
