Principal’s Message

Dear Haynes Families,

The HOP website provides a wealth of resources for families. I encourage you to make use of the tools and information at your disposal here.

Haynes Elementary School offers a safe and nurturing environment for students to learn and grow alongside their peers.  The faculty, staff, and administration at Haynes are here to support your children and to provide a positive learning experience for all students. I encourage parents and families to join us in events and activities throughout the school year.  HOP is a wonderful organization for parents to be involved in your child’s school and educational experience.  I hope you can participate by volunteering in events and activities organized through HOP.  Your involvement positively impacts your child’s education, regardless of the level of your participation.  Some parents and families may participate as a volunteer or a visitor for the day.  When children see their parents and family members become involved in their school events, they are encouraged to be the best Haynes Hawk they can be.  As we continue to create a strong and positive Haynes School community, we truly value your presence and participation.


Nadine G. Ekstrom, Ph.D.

Interim Principal
