    Fundraising Updates

    First off, I wanted to report our first restaurant night fundraiser of the year at Pizzicato Pizza was a HUGE success! In one day we raised $1,011.64 for our school's PTA. Hooray!!! Mark your calendars - our next restaurant night fundraiser is Tuesday, December 13th from 5 pm until 8 pm at Burgerville (9385 SW Allen Boulevard in Beaverton). Let's have another big night!

    As we head into the holiday season, there are lots of different ways you can support our school as you shop for family, friends, teachers, etc. Here are a few examples:

    eScrip + Benefit: Many of you are now familiar with our Scrip Program where you purchase gift cards to different retailers throughout Oregon with those retailers donating a percentage of your purchase price back to our school. Now, we have a mobile application that allows you to immediately purchase a gift card and earn a rebate for our school at no additional cost. Simply download the Benefit App on your phone or tablet, create your account, register Hayhurst Elementary as your beneficiary and purchase a gift card to use online or instore with a percentage of that total going back to our school! The beauty of the app is that you can make the purchase immediately once your account has been set up - perfect for the last minute visit to the movies, Target, or REI. Like Scrip, you receive the full amount of your purchase while the retailer donates back a percentage to our school. Even better, if 10 people sign up by November 30th AND make a purchase, eScrip + Benefit will donate $100 to our school! See the attached flyer or click on the following link to learn more: https://www.benefit-mobile.com/escrip.

    Amazon Smile: Do you shop on Amazon? Why not have a percentage of your purchase go to our school by shopping through it's charitable program at https://smile.amazon.com? You get the same great deals with the added benefit of Amazon donating .5 percent of eligible purchases to our school without any additional cost to you! Simply register Hayhurst Elementary as your beneficiary and start shopping! Have your Amazon-shopping family members link Hayhurst too - this is a great way for grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. to support our school!

    Fred Meyer Community Rewards: You can link your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to Hayhurst PTA and help our school earn a donation from Fred Meyer with every purchase! Again, this is at no additional cost to you - the more people who sign up to benefit Hayhurst and shop at Fred Meyer, the more Fred Meyer donates to our school! You can learn more and link your Rewards Card by visiting https://www.fredmeyer.com/topic/community-rewards-4.

    Lamb's Thriftway Bottle/Can Recycling: Heading to Lamb's for your turkey or pumpkin pie? Bring in your redeemable bottles and cans and deposit them in the Hayhurst bin at the front of the store. Lamb's redeems the bottles/cans for us and sends a check to Hayhurst for the total.

    BoxTops for Education: those little labels mean big money for our school! Check your pantries and cupboards and start clipping, Box Top labels are everywhere! And, get your extended family in on the act. A recent visit to my parent's home netted 20 box tops otherwise headed for the recycling bin. Take time this holiday season to educate your parents, siblings and extended family about the benefits of those little labels and start clipping. You can drop off your haul in the official Box Top drop-off box in our school's office.

    Finally, our biggest and most fabulous fundraiser of the year is our school's auction on May 20, 2017. Please consider joining our auction committee to help make the event a huge success! You can email Laurie Keenan, auction extraordinaire, at laurie.keenan27@gmail.com to learn more.

    We have had an awesome start to our fundraising year - thank you to everyone who has supported our efforts. And, if you have a fundraising idea, please drop me a line!

    Happy Holidays!

    Hayhurst Garden Club

    We are ready to open our winter registration for our Homesteading class. All details are included on the registration page including date, time, and cost. If you have a question that is not answered on the page, please email me and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

    We'll be continuing our Green Schoolhouse programming with a 2 day per week Homesteading class, classes will be different each day, but will also provide students to go deeper, if they choose, into projects they have already started. Below is the description and link to our registration page. Please let me know if you have any questions by responding to this email.

    The weather is getting colder and that means it's time to prepare for winter and what better way than by cooking up cozy treats, creating some snuggly textiles, preserving food from the garden, and making candles. We'll follow the journey of the season, finding ways to explore and appreciate the chilliest and rainiest of days all the way up to the end of the frost and the first spring planting. This class is open to Kindergarten through 5th grade.

    Technology Update

    If you haven't noticed, Hayhurst has a new website! Please be patient while I work to get everything updated. Please let me know if you notice anything I should fix or add. http://www.pps.net/Domain/123

    Computer Lab:
    We've been busy this fall. Kindergarten and 1st grade can now log into their IXL and RAZ Kids accounts. We encourage students to be independent learners, so please don't log in for them at home and please do not change their account passwords! All 2nd- 5th grade students have been using their Google drives since the start of the school year. Ask them to show you what they've been doing. We just started our coding unit with most of the classes. The students can access their coding accounts at home. We love to code!

    Please remember that your students all have accounts to RAZ Kids (reading), IXL (math) and Type to Learn. We hope parents are encouraging their children to use these valuable resources at home. Here's a link to their account log in pages and other curriculum websites they can explore: http://www.pps.net/domain/1952

    Lego Robotics Team Update:
    The Hayhurst Lego Robotics team, the Leadbusters, are in their final two weeks before the local tournament. This year's theme is Animal Allies. The Leadbusters have researched the harmful effects of lead sinkers on waterfowl. They will be at the Community Center sharing what they've learned on Sunday, Nov. 20th, 1:00-2:30pm. Please stop by to support them. They'd also like to warn you that you most likely have more lead in your tackle box than you realize!

    The Leadbusters go to tournament on Sunday, Dec. 4th. Right now the kids are frantically trying to get their programs to work consistently and to finalize all the details that need to get done before the tournament. Please wish Adam Grittman, Declan, Ethan Kibbee, Cole Harris, Lucas Devlin, Declan Keenan, Dakota Zariwny, Daniel Birnbaum, and Findlay Conlee-Brown good luck!!!

    GARDEN COMMITTEE: November Update

    Garden Work Party: This Friday November 18th 2:30-3:30 meet in the garden

    We are thrilled to share that our NATIVE PLANT PROJECT is in progress much earlier than anticipated. With the generous plant donation from community member and Teufel Landscape employee, Karen Suhal, we received 112 native plants (nearly our entire plant list). Some of our plants also came from Paul Stormo of Champoeg Nursery and Seven Oaks Native Nursery. The plants are now being planted by volunteers and students from our 5th grade classes. Soon to come will be educational markers at the site to promote the importance of natives in our area.

    BACKYARD HABITAT PROJECT: We are in the early stages of getting our school certified as a Backyard Habitat. The certification criteria requires taking action in these sub categories: Invasive Species, Native Plants, Pesticide Reduction, Wildlife Stewardship and Stormwater Management. The site tour is complete and within a few weeks we should have a comprehensive plan of action to meet the requirements. The benefits of this certification tie into the educational component of restoring native Northwest habitats. This program is provided through the partnership of Columbia Land Trust and The Audubon Society of Portland. We look forward to sharing more in the coming weeks and welcome you to check out their website for more information.

    The success of our outdoor education program relies on the involvement of parents, staff and community members. We welcome your involvement and feedback!

    News You Can Use From Multnomah County Libraries

     

    More resources for beginning readers!

    Multnomah County Library has kits for kids who are learning to read! These Welcome to Reading Kits are at four levels: Starting Out (yellow), Building Skills (blue), Reading More (red), and On My Own (green). Each color-coded bag contains 5 fun books and an information sheet on how to determine your child’s reading level, how to order more kits, and other activities you can do to help your child become a stronger reader. Last year we piloted the kits at five library locations. The pilot was so successful that we have expanded these kits to nine additional locations! You can now find Welcome to Reading kits at these libraries: Albina, Belmont, Capital Hill, Central, Fairview, Gregory Heights, Gresham, Hillsdale, Holgate, Hollywood, Kenton, Midland, Sellwood, and Woodstock.

    Check out the Learning to Read is Fun blog post for more about beginning readers and links to four leveled reading lists.

    If you're interested in finding more out about specific reading levels used in schools, take a look at the Reading Levels page created by Multnomah County Library's School Corps librarians.

    Calling all Boxtops!

    Did you know Hayhurst can earn $.10 for each Boxtop you collect? Those little pink labels that are found on cereal, kleenex, baggies, and other boxes earned our school over $800 last year!

    I am getting ready to send a bundle in and have counted nearly $250 worth. Keep them coming and let's see if we can earn even more than last year! Ask your relatives, neighbors, co-workers to participate in this simple way to help the kids. The collection box is in the front office and Boxtops can be sent in any time.

    Hayhurst Family in Need- 1 More Ask


    One more ask for you lovely and generous folks! We have some furniture to move to the new apartment of the family involved in the fire. Several of our neighbors have offered to donate furniture that currently resides in their home (they cannot move it themselves, however). We need a truck. We need some people to move the furniture. Most likely this would be Sunday. Could also use a person to coordinate all of this as my weekend is sort of busy already. I have names and phone numbers for contacting the donors. Thanks in advance. Email me at kirstenandtom@yahoo.com

    Dear Hayhurst Community,
    As the holiday season gets closer we begin to think about the needs of others in our community. We have many within our own school community that appreciate the support and caring of others during the holiday season. The “Giving Snowman” will appear in the school office, with a variety of options for giving. Please feel free to stop by, pick out a tag, and support someone in need. The Giving Snowman will be up from November 14th-December 16th, with gifts being delivered prior to winter break. This is a wonderful opportunity for your children to be involved in giving to others and recognizing that there are others in our community that are in need of some holiday cheer.

    **The Scrip Team is prepared to help you help others this season……Please use the order form on the back of this letter to provide gift cards that Mrs. Froehlich can distribute to those in need. Place your order and payment in the PTA lockbox on the office counter. Gift cards will be delivered directly to Mrs. Froehlich to distribute for the holiday season.** Click herre to download the Giving Snowman Order Form

    Thanks for your support!
