    Dear Hayhurst Community,

    Happy New year!  Welcome back from winter break! I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season with family and friends!  We have jumped back into the school year, and honestly it seems like winter break was months ago.  I want to THANK everyone who participated in the Giving Snowman! This year as a school community we shared the joy of the holidays with 45 families in our school community. Lots of smiles, lots of tears, and lots of Thank You’s! Families truly do appreciate the support in making the holidays and winter break a joyous time of the year.

    Unfortunately, over winter break we had to say our good byes to Natalie Leal our afterschool Connect Coordinator (grades 3-5). Natalie has taken a job in the Vancouver School system. She will be missed!  However, we have hired Beth Szczepanski to lead us on in the Connect program. We welcome her to our Hayhurst family! If your child is in Connect, be sure to stop in and say hello or introduce yourself, as it is always nice to put a name with a face.

    At the end of January through March we will be participating in a Young Audience residency as an entire school.  Every student will work with Sculpture artist Mark Brody, as we create a fabulous piece of public art for the front of the school.  In March, I will be looking for some parent help with grouting as the final product comes alive. Let me know if this is something you might be interested in doing.  I am excited for this all school art project! More details to come soon!

    It is that time of year to start recruiting kindergarten students for next year.  We will be hosting Connect to Kindergarten on Thursday, February 1st and Thursday, April 26th  both evenings start at 6:00pm. If you know of any incoming kindergarten families, send them our way to register for next year. The more the merrier!  Parents can come to an evening event and then register, or just come by the office and register at any time (during office hours 7:30am-3:30pm).  

    If we have any snowy weather, please listen to the news, look at the district website, or you may get a district phone call telling you about school openings/closings for the day.  If your child takes the bus, this is a good time to figure out the snow routes along with pick up and drop off times prior to the bad weather starting.  The easiest way to check the route is to go to Student Transportation on the PPS website, and click on inclement weather.

    Looking forward to the next five and half months of school (yes, the year is flying by)!  
    Thank you again for all of your support.

    Happy New Year!

    Deanne Froehlich  Principal  Hayhurst/Odyssey
