5th Grade Fun Night!

Posted on: May 17th, 2017 by webmaster

What better way to celebrate our graduates than the tropical/beach themed 5th Grade Fun Night at Haynes on Friday, June 9th from 6:30-9:00 p.m.  A party just for our Haynes 5th graders!

In order to make this event a success, we do need your help!  There are many volunteer opportunities for parents.  Please visit the volunteer sign up sheet to see how you can help.

****We are also looking for beach/Hawaiian themed decorations that you are willing to lend for the evening.  Specifically, electric or blow up palm trees, surfboards, large bright plastic tubs for drinks and ice, bright colored beach towels, plastic Adirondack chairs and any other tropical decorations you are willing to lend. If you do have something you think might help us transform the cafeteria into a fun tropical scene, please email one of us ASAP so that we can plan accordingly.****

Any questions, contact Jill Kushinsky or Allison Evans.

Thank you for helping to make this a fun and successful event for our graduating 5th graders!

Field Day is June 14th!

Posted on: May 17th, 2017 by webmaster

This year we will once again be celebrating the closing days of the school year with Field Day. Field Day will be held Wednesday, June 14th. View the Field Day Volunteer Page and sign up!  For planning purposes and for those new to Field Day, here is an overview of the day:



9:00-11:30 a.m. – Students in kindergarten and grades 1 and 2 will rotate through a series of game stations.



Lunch will be served in the café/auditorium and enjoyed in the courtyard. Students and parents will have the option to bring or buy a bag lunch.


Haynes administration will distribute and collect lunch order forms. Stay tuned!


11:30 a.m.- 12:05 p.m. Students in grades 1 and 2 will have lunch. Following lunch, students will return to their classrooms for a regular academic day.

12:10-12:45 p.m. Students in grades 3 through 5 will have lunch. Following lunch, students will be dismissed to the field for Field Day.


12:50-3:15 p.m. – Students in grades 3 through 5 will rotate through a series of game stations located on the field. Following Field Day, students will return to their classroom for regular dismissal.


The school’s goal for Field Day is to engage students in fun, cooperative games that reinforce the school’s core values of respect, community and caring. Field Day builds upon the problem-solving skills taught at the elementary level through the social competency curriculums, Open Circle, Quit It, and BullyProof, and reinforced through daily class work and specialized events. A team of parent volunteers and teachers has been working to ensure that Field Day is accessible, engaging and non-competitive.

Looking forward to another fabulous Field Day!
