Virtual Auction and Restaurant Night to Support Hayhurst Elementary

The Hayhurst PTA and Hayhurst PTO are having a joint online auction to raise funds for Hayhurst Elementary School and its community. Here are some ways you can help this fundraiser!

The Virtual Auction – Dec. 3rd-7th

Starting on Thursday December 3rd, 2020, we will open up bidding on our online auction sponsored by NW Public Affairs and Alpenrose Dairy. Support our school community and get some goodies for holiday giving, or just something to look forward to in 2021!

We will email you an invitation to participate in the when bidding opens. Bidding will close on Monday, December 7th, 2020.

From a Yakima rooftop tent to gift certificates for travel and local treats, we will have something for everyone. A list of the donors to the auction is listed on our website.

Auction link will be posted here.

Fundraising Takeout Dinner On Dec 5th (Last Day to Order: Dec. 3rd)

Support Hayhurst and a Hayhurst local business by getting a take-out family dinner from Grand Cru Catering on Saturday, December 5th, 2020.

Grand Cru Catering is headquartered right here in the neighborhood and is co-owned by a family with two kids that will be at Hayhurst in a couple years.

Just for us, they have created a simple, family-friendly fajita dinner with all the add-ons. Order your family dinner right here. You can add on beverages from juice boxes to winter sangria, dessert, or even delivery. The Family Dinner will be on Saturday, December 5th.

For every dinner sold, Grand Cru will donate $10 to support our fundraiser.

Order your family dinner right here.

Direct Give

If auctions and special dinners aren’t for you, feel free to contribute directly. Find all the details, here.

Donate here.

Thank You!

Every dollar raised – auction, dinner, donation – will go toward the work Hayhurst parents and teachers do for our community. This holiday season, that means extra food bags and gift cards for families in need, in addition to the usual grants for teachers, funds for special projects (like maintaining our awesome courtyard), and school supplies for all. 

Questions? Please email Christy Splitt.

Library Curbside Checkout Program Postponed Further Due to Safety Concerns

The library curbside checkout program continues to need to be postponed due to safety concerns. Ms. Jones and Ms. Chambers are working with administration to monitor Covid-19 metrics in our community and will announce a new start date when it is safe to move forward.

In the meantime, we will have the blue book return bin available in the parking lot by the cafeteria doors this Wednesday, Dec. 2nd from 2:00-4:00 if you have Hayhurst Library books you would like to return.

Wow! Thank You for Supporting the Hayhurst Book Fair at Annie Bloom's!

The Hayhurst Book Fair sales were over $6,500!  

The staff at Annie Bloom's wanted us to express their gratitude for the support from our community.  The Hayhurst library will receive a portion of those sales and gift cards were donated so that the book love can be shared with as many families as possible!

One of the wonderful things about our book fairs is that all of our students benefit from lots of new books in the library (curbside check out coming as soon as we get word from the district that we can start). 

May your family find ways to celebrate the simple joys this Thanksgiving,

The Library Ladies
