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.

Why is the Annual Haynes Auction Important?

Posted on: October 2nd, 2017 by webmaster

Did you know that the auction is the largest fundraiser of the year, and that every student at Haynes benefits from the auction? HOP spends $25,000 each year on cultural and science enrichment programs for all grades including amazing programs like 3rd grade Whale Day, 2nd grade “Lights and Lasers”, Kindergarten “Balls and Ramps”, 4th grade “Electricity Show”, and 5th grade “Kitchen Chemistry”, just to name a few.  HOP also funds artists in residence, all school performances, festivals, all classroom crafts and field day t-shirts.=

Your support for the auction matters, since none of this would be possible without you. To see more, check out the auction website at and look for your email invitation coming soon!

Haynes Auction 2017

Saturday, Nov. 18, 6:30 – 11pm

Wedgewood Pines Country Club in Stow

We are very excited to announce another great year for the Haynes Auction.  It’s a great night of dinner, dancing and lots of fun. Come visit our table at back-to-school night!

We are still looking for a few helpers for small tasks including publicity (submitting facebook and newsletter updates), and someone to do the RSVP necklaces (purchase bead necklaces, attach RSVP stickers and deliver them to classrooms in early November). These are great easy volunteer opportunities. If you are interested in helping, please email Rory Richards .

The auction is HOP’s biggest fundraiser of the year, providing the majority of funding for the HOP enrichment programs that take place in classrooms. We hold the auction in the fall so that the money we raise can be used during this academic year. 100% of the money we raise funds enrichment experiences for your children including classroom visits from authors, artists and presenters, grade-level cultural festivals, all classroom crafts, our annual field day and so much more.
