Hayden Peak Day of Caring! Save the Date!

We are so fortunate to have the best community and support! Over the last couple of years, we have had the opportunity to participate in Comcast Cares Day and your support has been overwhelming. This year, we will be hosting the Hayden Peak Day of Caring! Ivory Homes has generously donated trees for us to plant. In addition, we will do some weeding and clean up in and around the school. Please mark your calendar for Saturday, May 18, 2019 and plan to volunteer! We look forward to another wonderful day of volunteering, music, and fun!

Valentine's Day is Thursday, February 14, 2019. While it is often thought of as a holiday for couples, it is also a wonderful day to let those you care about know how you feel! Here are a few Valentine Family Date ideas:

Go bowling
Take a city tour
Do a rose drop for widows
A dollar store blitz
Dinner and a movie
Go to the zoo
Take cookies to neighbors
Kids' choice!

SPOTLIGHT! Girls Who Code Club

Hayden Peak Elementary offers many opportunities for our students to expand and share their talents in after school programs. Over the next few months, we will spotlight each of the programs and how your child can participate. This month we are spotlighting the GIRLS WHO CODE CLUB!

This is a brand new after school program for 4th, 5th grade girls. What is coding? It means to construct a set of instructions to implement an algorithm in order to solve a problem. Those instructions then allow a program to run, whether it is on a computer, tablet, or phone.

The club goes from Tuesday, January 15-March 19, 2019. Girls in the 4th and 5th grade will have fun learning this valuable skill.
