    Thursday, April 6 TALENT SHOW! 6 PM Cafetorium – Get your kids performance ideas going now!

    Pardon the length, but please read:

    What you need to know:

    Each performance is 2 minutes MAX

    * 1 "Performance" per child *

    * I will invite the MUSE band to perform - if your child is in the band or choir, I will still allow them to perform since these are large group pieces *

    Show Us Your Stuff Day 2:15- 3:30 PM – For Date(s) Stay Tuned

    WHAT IS “SHOW US YOUR STUFF”???

    “Show Us Your Stuff” day is not an audition!

    Traditionally, we like to hear your child’s performance because it helps your child prepare to perform, and it helps us create a varied and balanced program. Everyone’s selections are always included although guidance and alternatives may be given at that time.

    (Probably in Ms. Bunnell's room since she has a piano - but wait til I confirm with her)

    Dress Rehearsal: Tentatively 2:15 - 4:00 PM April 6 (Day Of) so we're not using the space more than 1 day due to sharing it with After Care

    What I REALLY need help with:

    (Please email or text me if you or someone you know is good for any of the following)

    - A partner to plan the event - need someone who is available a couple afternoons right after school for

    - "Show Us Your Stuff Day" - otherwise time commitment involves communicating with me via email/text

    - Two “Stage Crew” volunteers (adjusts the mikes as needed, miscellaneous, gets performers onto the stage from side door)

    - Emcee Volunteer to Announce the Acts

    - A “tech” volunteer to help with the playlist and run songs throughout the show (HELP!)

    - A volunteer to run sound/P.A. system during the show (HELP!)

    - A volunteer to help with sound set up pre-show (HELP!)

    - A volunteer to run the spotlight (HELP!)

    - A volunteer to sell snacks during the show

    - Audience: helps with breakdown of chairs after event

    My job: Communications, Programming, Show Us Your Stuff Days, Hayhurst Kids Choir Program and Performance, and Dress Rehearsal

    Updates from the Dream Big Project:

    Bidding for the Rockaway Beach weekend getaway is up and running with the last bid standing at $415! The total value of the package is $415, which means every dollar in excess of that amount can be counted as a tax-deductible charitable donation to our school's playground fundraising efforts!

    Remember, to check the highest bid here, before making your bid here. You can view the adorable getaway by clicking here:

    https://www.vacasa.com/unit.php?UnitID=1684

    In other developments, we have surpassed the $2,000.00 mark in our direct giving donations, with more donations coming in daily! A number of families have taken advantage of their employer's charitable donation matching program - what an easy way to double your donation - while students have taken fundraising into their own hands, asking neighbors, friends, and grandparents for donations. Add in the proceeds from Restaurant Nights at Chipotle, Laughing Planet & Sunny's Legendary Frozen Yogurt and we have surpassed $3,500.00 in our FINAL playground fundraiser - we are getting so close!

    Thank you for your support!

    This Week Is National School Counseling Week - Feb. 6-10

    National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), will be celebrated from Feb. 6–10, 2017, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do.

    National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.

    At Hayhurst, school counseling helps students succeed in the three major domains: personal/social development, academic growth, and college/career readiness. A huge thank you to all students, families, staff, administrators, and community members who help school counseling thrive at our school!

    Technology at Hayhurst

    Hayhurst kids have caught the coding bug! All Kindergarten - 5th grade students have spent the last few weeks learning how to code. We definitely have some talented programmers at our school. Kids can continue to code at home using their Code Studio accounts or by exploring sites that other sites on the Hayhurst Just for Kids page.

    This past week we started the Lego Robotics unit with all 3rd-5th grade classes. The students work in teams using EV3 robots. They will learn how to use touch and color sensors and how to build attachments to complete tasks. All teams will be working to complete challenges on a competition field as they prepare for their class tournament.

    The 2nd grade classes began their unit on communities. The kids are using Google Docs to collect research about buildings. They also used Google maps to locate their homes. Both classes will design a community and then will use Minecraft EDU to bring them to life. They began building their residential areas yesterday. I wish you could have been there to experience the excitement- oh my! These kids are crazy for Minecraft!

    Airport Legal Support - PDX

    There is a very grass roots movement of lawyers, translators and other volunteers who are making themselves available to go to the airport for arriving flights that may contain travelers from the 7 countries on the current ban list.

    They have already been able to help folks arriving and being detained and those folks have so far been released.

    Very much needed are folks who speak Farsi or Arabic. There is no need to be certified as a translator. Just need to be able to understand the languages and offer help communicating between those arriving, families and lawyers.

    Also needed are "other volunteers” to offer help perhaps driving to or from legal offices, courtrooms, etc.

    Please note that this is a very rudimentary group. The format is currently a google doc sign up. There is no real central place to ask questions or concerns apart from what is listed. These folks are all volunteers and work at the same time. If you are interested, please add your name to a time slot or to the volunteer/translator info page. Hopefully more information and ideas will be forthcoming from the work in this group.

    If you volunteer, you basically go to the airport and sit and await contact for needed work. People are bringing work or books to entertain themselves during this time.

    Many international flights arrive daily. Unfortunately, there is no information ahead of the arrival if there are people who may need help aboard.

    Here's the link to the sign up sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1cznltbbffdnqgWj4GAEXXVyGc8q0r4b1UCR_sIz9D7A/edit?usp=sharing

    Coming Soon: Your Dream Playground!!!

    Hello Hayhurst Families!

    The final countdown has begun - just 8 weeks until work begins on the final phase of our dream playground! But, we're not quite there yet...unexpected costs due to demolition, drainage, and installation leaves us $20,000 short of our fundraising goal! Having raised over $150,000 in three years, we know we can do it, BUT we need your help!

    Soon, flyers will begin popping up in backpacks with pins asking you to help us DREAM BIG by donating for our final fundraising push! Look for thermometers around the school measuring our success as we countdown the days until our years long effort has been completed!

    Donating is easy and tax deductible - simply mail or drop off a check to "Hayhurst PTA" in the school office and write "DREAM BIG!" in the memo line. Or make a Paypal donation online at hayhurstpta.org and write "DREAM BIG!" in the special instructions.

    And, help us spread the word! Extended family, neighbors, and co-workers have played a key role in our success over the years - let everyone know of our fundraising efforts - they may want to join the fun! Also, many employers will match your charitable donations - an easy way to double your money!

    A HUGE thank you to everyone who has brought us this far - it truly has been a community-wide effort. Let's come together one more time to create a fun, imaginative and durable playground that our children will enjoy for years to come!

    December 2016

    Dear Hayhurst Community,

    It is hard to believe that December is quickly flying by, with a little winter weather, and lots of activities one can feel the holidays are right around the corner, and the first half of the school year is coming to a close.

    January 1st will be Mrs. Maureen McGuinness's last day, as after many years of working in the school system she is is retiring. We will greatly miss her, as part of our Hayhurst-Odyssey team, but wish her all the best on her next adventures in life. Blake Engeldorf will be talking her place for the remainder of the school year. Mr. Engeldorf was the long term sub, for Susie Goetz this past Fall so he is familiar with our school set up and many of the students.

    Due to the wackiness of the month with the few snow days, I am moving the December birthday party to January and will combine the two parties in early January...more info. on the date in the new year.

    I want to thank everyone who participated in making the Giving Snowman a huge success this year!! This is an event that should make everyone feel good! As I begin to send the bags home with families, we have already had tears, thanks, and hugs. This is truly an event of community supporting community. Your generosity and kindness have definitely made the difference in many of our own families. THANK YOU!!

    I want to wish all of you a happy and healthy winter vacation. Enjoy the time as a family. Play board games together, eat meals together, laugh together, even do a little school work (reading and math together), our children grow up quickly so enjoy those precious moments.

    Happy Holidays!
    Cheers to the New Year!

    See you on January 3rd for the second half of the school year with lots of learning and fun!

    Thanks,
    Deanne Froehlich

  • Enrollment balancing for Peninsula, Chief Joseph and Ockley Green

    Soomaaliga Español Tiếng Việt
    The District-wide Boundary Review Advisory Committee (DBRAC) was formed in 2014 to help with enrollment balancing across Portland Public Schools. The committee’s most recent work led them to propose two options to help relieve crowding at Chief Joseph and to create more robust enrollment at Peninsula starting in the 2017-18 school year. On January 30, 2017, Interim Superintendent Bob McKean endorsed one of two DBRAC proposals.

    The proposal, which still requires the approval of the Board of Education, may be reviewed at, www.pps.net/dbrac.
