It’s new!

It’s Back to School Night (D track)

It’s a different format! (two flyers should have gone home).

We will begin right at 6 p.m. in your first rotation. We’ll be showing a 6-minute video.

At the end of the first session, we’ll show the video again.

After the video you will be released to attend the second and last session.

We hope this format is more efficient as we know your time is valuable.

We scored ‘Above Average’ in the Cafeteria

We’re Back

Our teachers and custodians and office helpers (and I) have been busy getting everything ready for you to be back!

A, B, and C tracks begin on Monday, July 28th. Please have your children be ready by the grade-level doors to be brought in by their teacher(s).

Have you updated your information on Skyward? If not, please do so!

Again, we are all excited to have you back Monday morning! In the meantime, have a nice weekend and I’ll see you soon!

Volunteer Background Checks

Posted on:

Dear Parents and Guardians:

I’m so excited to begin another school year, and hope you will be involved in your child’s education while here at Hayden Peak.

I’d like to give you a heads up on volunteer background checks. Hopefully this information will help you.

Fingerprinting is available Monday through Friday at the District Office from  7:30 am – 4:30 p.m. — no appointment is needed. Volunteers MUST pick up the Volunteer Information Form signed by me (the Principal) in order to be fingerprinted. If you go to Human Resources without this signed form, you will be sent back to the school to get it.

Volunteers must be fingerprinted at least two (2) weeks BEFORE a field trip in order to receive the background check results. If you aren’t fingerprinted at least two weeks prior to this event, you may not have unsupervised access to students.

Fingerprinting is good for five years (and at no cost to you). At the beginning of each of the subsequent school years, please come to the office to update your information on the volunteer information form.

I appreciate your willingness to volunteer and want to make this a smooth process, and look forward to having you feel comfortable helping out at Hayden Peak Elementary.

Night at the Museum – enjoy our celebration!

This will be a new tradition we will keep!



Principal Newsletter – June 2014

Posted on:

Throughout the school year the Hayden Peak’s school community has been working on “learning, living, and leading” using the 7 Habits as a common framework. It has been exciting to see the students apply the 7 Habits to their lives and evolve as leaders. Hayden Peak Hawks standout! Whether it has been major events – Veteran’s Day program, Night at the Museum, various concerts and performances – or simply offering a helping hand or lifting up a friend in need — your students shine!



As the end of the year approaches I would like to briefly discuss a new habit that is becoming a part of our school’s common framework. Habit 8: Find your voice and inspire others to do likewise. Stephen R. Covey stated, “ One word expresses the pathway to greatness: voice. Those on this path find their voice and inspire others to find theirs. The rest never do.” Mr. Covey continues to define “voice” as the “overlapping of the four parts of our nature – mind, heart, body, and spirit”.



Covey outlines four questions that you can use with your students to help them discover their voice:


·      What are you good at? This is your mind.


·      What do you love doing? This is your heart.


·      What need can you serve? This is your body.


·      What is life asking of you…what is your conscience directing you to do? This is your spirit.



As your students discover their voice, help them identify positive ways to express their voice and inspire others. The ability to inspire others is a powerful thing. To inspire, one must be trustworthy and capable of building trust. As our students continue to understand and apply the principles of Habit 8 they will find themselves heading down “the pathway to greatness”.

Change in today’s lunch menu

Posted on:

Good morning everyone,

When Mrs. Barlow, our lunch manager, opened up the bag of potatoes for our baked potato bar yesterday, they were BAD!

Today, choice number one will be pancake sausage on a stick, choice number two will be pork patty dinner, and choice number three will be sack lunch.

We have announced this to our students as well. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but isn’t it nice to see that Mrs. Barlow is watching out for us all?
