    Hayhurst Art Show: One Night Only - Thursday, April 27th, 6-7:30 p.m.

    On Thursday, April 27th, 6-7:30 p.m., join us for an evening of art, music and fun! Students in each class hand-select three art projects they are proud of and have worked on throughout the year in Art Class. Come see what they have done!

    Parent Helpers needed for the Art Show!

    On the afternoon of Wednesday, April 26th I need help hanging student artwork. I need parents with a keen eye for hanging work in a precise and organized manner.

    The cafeteria will be prepped and transformed into a museum over 3 days and I need your help hanging about 900 pieces of student artwork. Students in each class hand-select three art projects they are proud of and have worked on throughout the year in Art Class. We then organize the pieces according to project or artist studied and hang them on the walls of the cafeteria.

    Help is needed:
    Wednesday, April 26th, from 1-4 p.m.
    Thursday, April 27th, from 8-10 a.m. and 2:15-5 p.m.

    Looking for Musical Performers for the Art Show

    With the Art Show close at hand, I am looking for some musicians to enhance the viewing experience on April 27th. Last year we had students (and a talented mom and a dad) play the piano, recorder, guitar, and mandolin, flute and banjo. If you are interested in playing for 2-10 minutes of well-polished pieces, I would love to have you! Please fill out the form below to let me know I should include you in the line-up. I will let you know your approximate time for performing once we figure out how many students wish to play.

    Further details in the attached flyers.

    Thank you!

    Technology Update

    The WeDo kits have been put into action and the kids love them! Mrs. Eichman and Mrs. Anderson's second grade classes are the first to work with the kits. I wish I could include an audio file of the oohs and aahs of their excitement. They couldn't wait to start building and programming!

    We began with the Frog Metamorphosis unit where the students worked with a partner to build a tadpole. Then they modified the model, adding rear legs and then front legs. After each stage, they experimented with the programming to move it around and make sounds.

    We are thankful to have such a generous community who donated the funds to help us build a class set of these kits.

    Please see the Hayhurst Computer Lab website for more: http://hayhurstcomputerlab.weebly.com/

    Opening TONIGHT: The Heart of Portland Exhibit at The Portland Art Museum - All Are Invited

    You are all invited to the Heart of Portland exhibit at the Portland Art Museum. This year, like last, I was asked to choose one student whose work has been exceptional. There are so many talented students at Hayhurst, imagine how difficult this is for me! Katie Merkel is a fifth grader who has been a fantastic art student, listened attentively to directions, followed precise instructions, and helped others with their artwork too. She will have her Kehinde Wiley inspired artwork in the Portland Art Museum exhibit too. Congratulations Katie!

    As a special project this year, Art teachers were given an opportunity to have more students involved in The Heart of Portland show at the Portland Art Museum. We were asked to pick one class to participate from each school. As a respectful, talented group of students, I selected Mrs. Bokoske’s 5th graders, some or which I have been lucky enough to work with for 4 years.

    Students created a set of eyes on a 3 inch by 6 inch piece on paper for the Heart of Portland show. They used any available medium from my art room in a style of their choosing. The hundreds of eyes will be on display on a wall with all the other eyes from the Portland School District.

    If you are able, please join me for the reception on Wednesday, April 12 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. FREE & Open to the Public.

    See attached flier.

    Thank you.

    Dear Hayhurst/Odyssey Community,

    Several weeks ago I sent you an email to inform you about our staffing for next year. I have an update. Our Counselor Lucas Partridge has accepted a job with the Las Vegas School district. We are sad to see him go, but excited to hear about his upcoming adventures. He has been a wonderful addition to our Hayhurst staff and has supported our students and families. 

    This position will be filled through our districts HR process. I will still be hiring one counselor who will be split between the two schools for the 2017-18 school year.

    I will keep you posted as staffing updates occur.
    Thanks,
    Deanne
