We are so excited to start a new school year at Hayden Peak Elementary. We have missed our students and families and teachers. It is fun to hear the buzz and feel the energy that those very important pieces bring to our school.
We had a fantastic Back to School Night. In case you missed it, here are some of the highlights:
PTA had a booth set up showcasing all the things they do for our students and school. They provide funding for field trips, put together the Fun Run and Field Day, sponsor multiple weeks focusing on safe habits and practices and are in charge of Reflections. PTA also provides help for teachers in the classroom, meals for teachers at Parent Teacher Conferences and helps with Harmony Choir. The cost to join PTA is $5.00, and it is money well spent. If you haven’t joined PTA, we encourage families to join.
School Community Council also had a booth set up. School Community Council is a group made up of parents, teachers, administrators and community members. They help make decisions in how to spend Trust Land money for the school. The have an annual fundraiser to raise money for the school. This year they are selling Little Caesar’s cards, where every pizza bought allows for free Crazy Bread Combos. If you would like to join School Community Council, we would love to have you. They meet four times throughout the year, usually on a Friday morning before school starts. Contact the school if you would like to part of this very important group.
We served hotdogs, chips, drinks, and Otter Pops to all who came and visited with teachers, PTA, and School Community Council. Our PTA and School Community Council, as well as Sam’s Club in Jordan Landing, generously donated money and water for this event. We received very positive comments about this format for Back to School Night, and we enjoyed this community event as well.
Thank you to all of our volunteers who helped with our parking blitz the first two weeks of school. Please remember to follow the procedures for picking up and dropping off students.
- Pull all the way forward to the yellow line or the car in front of you. (Please do not stop without pulling completely forward.)
- Stay in your vehicle and pull forward as space becomes available.
- Students should enter and exit vehicles on the curbside of the road. (Arrange car seats to accommodate.)
- Yield to students in crosswalks and obey safety patrol students and teachers.
- There is no parking in the pick-up/drop-off loop. (If you are checking students in or out of school, please park in the parking lot.
Please help keep all of our students and patrons safe by following our procedures.
Finally, Hayden Peak wants all of our students to do well in school and in life. We have updated our mission and vision statements, and our motto.
Our mission is to engage students’ minds to excel academically,
think critically, and be kind and ethical.
Empowering lifelong learners through the partnerships of family, school, and community.
Engage, Empower, Excel
Thank you for all your support. We are excited for a new year of learning and opportunities.
