Box Tops Contest

Posted on: January 28th, 2018 by webmaster

This February, we are running a school wide box tops contest! If we beat the number of box tops that we collected in the fall, the entire school gets an extra recess (thanks Mrs. MacDonald for your support!) In the fall, we collected 2,881 box tops! Lets try to collect 3,000 box tops by Friday March 2nd to win an extra recess and earn FREE $$ for the school! Here’s a link to blank box tops sheets you can print from home or you can return your box tops to school in a ziplock bag! Just double check that there are no expired box tops! Happy collecting!

Haynes Gift of Reading – Share the Love!

Posted on: January 22nd, 2018 by webmaster
Does anyone in your family have a Valentine (sibling, parent, grandparent…)  that would like to be celebrated in a special way?  Or, are you looking for a fun way to show some love to a special teacher?  Celebrate someone by donating a book to the Haynes library through the Gift of Reading Program!

It’s easy to do, and can all be done online.

Mrs. Kramer has put together a list of books based on her knowledge of the latest and greatest of what’s out there as well as from kids’ suggestions and requests.  Click HERE to access the library wishlist and choose a book.  Please make sure to note in the “Gift Message” box on the online form the name of the person who is being honored by your book donation.  Books will be shipped and then delivered directly to the school.  A bookplate will be put in the cover of the book to recognize your family’s donation and the honoree.  Please email Jodi Sparks with any questions.  Thanks for your support of our library!

Giddy-Up! The Book Fair Has Arrived!

Posted on: November 27th, 2017 by webmaster
Visit the Haynes library this week to see it transformed into a book fair!  All students will visit the book fair with their classes during the week, and will bring home their book “wishlists.” If you cannot attend the book fair in person, you may still purchase books by having your child return the wishlist with payment by 11:00am on Friday, December 1st.  If you would like to volunteer to help when your child visits the fair, sign up on the HOP website.

 
The teachers, specialists and librarians will also select books (available in bins at the book fair) that they would love to have donated to their classrooms. This is a great teacher gift idea and the students get to fill out a special bookplate that commemorates their lasting donation to their class and school.  Don’t forget to visit us on Movie Night! It’s a great time to purchase gifts for the holidays!

Thank You to the Amazing Haynes Community!

Posted on: November 20th, 2017 by webmaster

We would just like to give the community of Haynes a huge THANK YOU for supporting and attending the 2017 Auction at Wedgewood Pines Country Club this weekend. We are still finalizing the financials, but we raised over $33,000 for HOP!!!!  It was wonderful to come together with other Haynes parents and celebrate the community that makes us who we are. Thank you to our amazing volunteers, donors and parents who attended and made the evening a success. The funds from the auction ensure that HOP will be able to bring all of the scheduled science and cultural arts enrichment programming to school this year.

If you weren’t able to attend the auction, but would still like to support HOP, you can donate directly to HOP by clicking here here .  You can also continue to donate through the Auction website. Also, don’t forget that if you donate directly to HOP, your donation may be eligible for matching by your employer. For more information click here.

Thank you for your support!
