    End of Semester & Inservice Day Change - Message from PPS Superintendent 


    Dear PPS Families and Community:
    As you know, due to the inclement weather last month, Portland Public Schools was closed for four days: December 8, 9, 15 and 16.
    In order to ensure our students receive the instructional hours they need this semester, district staff is recommending the following modification to the calendar to the Board of Education:
    •    Extending the semester by one week so that the last day of the semester will be Thursday, February 2nd instead of the original schedule of Thursday, January 26th; and
    •    Moving the in-service to Friday, February 3rd from the original schedule of Friday, January 27.
    The Board will vote on this recommendation on Tuesday, January 10.
    As previously communicated, the school board voted at their December 13 board meeting to add two days to the end of the school year, making the last day of school June 13, 2017. 
    We understand that this change will require many families to adjust their schedules as it relates to work and childcare and we apologize for any inconvenience. We appreciate your understanding of these adjustments and your support in ensuring the highest quality of education for our students.
    Sincerely,
    Bob McKean
    Interim Superintendent

    Winter Garden Club - Classes Start January 11

    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.

    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.

    Wednesday's and/or Thursday's 2:15 - 3:45 January 11 - March 23

    Expanding Hayhurst Lego Robotics – Kits Needed for 1st & 2nd Grade Students

    Dear Hayhurst Families,

    We have been eager to expand the robotics curriculum at Hayhurst for some time. As many of you know, we have enough Lego EV3 robots for our 3rd- 5th grade curriculum but we do not have any robots for our 1st and 2nd grade students. Our hope is to purchase two classroom sets of Lego WeDo 2.0 kits. We need 15 kits per classroom. Parent, Barry Greenberg, has offered to help with some of the funding. He is hoping that other parents might contribute towards the purchase of the kits, also. We currently have 11 kits and 5 rechargeable power packs.

    Want to know more about the WeDo kits? Click here.

    Here's what we need to reach our goal of two classroom sets:
    19 - WeDo 2.0 kits ($159.95 each): https://education.lego.com/en-us/elementary/shop/wedo-2?product_lines=WeDo2
    25 - Rechargeable power packs ($79.95each): https://education.lego.com/en-us/products/wedo-2-0-add-on-power-pack/5004838
    If you'd like to help, you may contribute online through the PTA Direct Giving page (http://www.pps.net/domain/2086) or by giving a check to Kathy in the office. Please make the check payable to the Hayhurst PTA and mark it "WeDo Kits."

    Ideas for Helping Beginning Readers But I Don’t Like Reading
    Reading is important to success. For most people, it is an enjoyable and relaxing way to spend time. But for some children, reading is low on the list of “fun things to do.” It can be very frustrating to hear a child say “I don’t like to read!” But it can happen. Be a good listener. Try to find out why your child resists reading.
    Is reading difficult? Check with your child’s teacher to see if she or he is having trouble reading at school.
    Is it just more fun to be on the computer or watch television? Establish a reading time that is consistent and balanced with screen time.
    Are the right materials available? The library is full of high interest materials on every possible topic and in many different formats including picture books, magazines, activity books, comics, fact books, and graphic novels.
    Are you modeling that reading is important and valued? Set aside some time when your child can see you reading. Whether it is for work or pleasure, it is important for your child to know reading is an essential part of everyday life.

    For middle school students/parents:

    Multnomah County Library has a page just for teens on its website!

    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 + BenefitMany 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 RewardsYou 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 RecyclingHeading 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 Educationthose 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!

That specific exhibit will only be in town until January 6, 2017 so rush down there to take a look with your kids if you are able. They might be able to share some interesting facts with you about his art and life! 
    Also, the Wilson Cluster (schools that feed into Wilson High School including Wilson) currently have an art show on at the BESC or district office. Congratulations to the students whose artwork is currently on display representing Hayhurst School: Nya Long, Poppy Dibble, Lily Roller, Bella Mosteller, Xander Pitzman, Marina Waln, Grayson Klemchuk, Brooklyn Nelson, Javan Mullen, Nathan Burchette, Murphy and Fletcher Hamman, Soleil Morgan, Kanon Walter, Neea Mende and Jayden Parker.

    Dream Big Playground Updates

    Hello Hayhurst Teachers & Staff,

    I wanted to provide you with an update on where things stand with the second phase of our playground project! First, the good news: the second phase will be installed soon (knock on wood). We have several bids from contractors to perform the demolition, site preparation and installation of the second phase...and, they're high, but not crazy high! 

    Now, for the bad news: we have had several playground redesigns that have delayed our ability to move forward - some are PPS issues, some are underwater drainage issues, some are are related to issues with the installation of the first phase of the playground. Unfortunately, once one issue has been addressed, another one seems to pop up. They are frustrating, mainly because they are beyond our control - we have to wait for the vendor, PPS, the manufacturer, etc. to address the issue before we can move forward. However, once the stars align (and they will align so help me), our next step is a direct give campaign to address the gap between the amount we have reserved for demo/site prep/install ($20,000.00) and the lowest bid we received from the potential contractors ($36,000.00). The goal will be to raise an additional $20,000.00 to $25,000.00 to address any potential hiccups that increase our costs and cover permitting fees. We are hoping the families new to our school and our community will be energized to bridge the gap between what we have raised and what we ultimately will need to complete our dream playground.

    Thank you so much for your patience over the years. Believe me when I say I cannot wait for this playground to be up and running!

    Library Updates

    The Hayhurst Lego Robotic team competes this weekend. The "Leadbuster" Team has been practicing since September. Coach Fran Barth and the 8 member team are ready to go. Good Luck!

    The Hayhurst Chess Club has a tournament this weekend. It is an open tournament and will be exciting for kids to practice all they have learned. 

    If your child logged reading on a Read Big form -- it is time to turn it in. There is a basket on the Library Return Box for forms. We thank the Portland Trail Blazers for encouraging reading at Hayhurst.

    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.

    TAG Nominations

    If you would like to nominate your child for TAG services, please complete a TAG nomination form and turn it in to your child's teacher. Nomination forms are available in the school office. All TAG nominations are due to the school by November 10. Please note that the nomination forms include both parent and teacher feedback, so it is helpful if you can turn them in to teachers as early as possible. Parent-Teacher conferences are a great opportunity to ask additional questions and complete any final elements of the nomination form.

    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.

    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
    Principal
    Hayhurst/Odyssey
