Starting This Friday: Library Book Bag Day Is Moving to Friday

The library book bag program Let's Get Reading has handed out over 200 bags of library books! 
Please note that we will be switching from Wednesdays to Fridays (still 2pm-4pm) beginning Friday, February 19th.  We'll still hand out library book bags this Wednesday, but beginning next week we'll see you on Fridays at the front entrance of the school.
Some things to remember about the program:
When you return a bag please make sure that all the books are in the bag (refer to the picture stapled to the bag - and make sure the picture comes back too). If your child is returning books checked out last year please keep these separate from the book bags.
Questions? Contact Laura Jones.
Thank you,
The Library Ladies. 

Art Supply Pick-up Fri., Feb. 26th 2-4 PM - Details, Art Classes, & Call for Volunteers

Due to the weather, the art supply pick up date has been changed.  Please come to the school on Friday, February 26th, between 2-4 pm, to pick up a new collection of art supplies. In the bag of art supplies, you will also find a wooden Hayhurst Husky head to paint, which will later be displayed outside the school on the fence.
Other art news: next week (Feb. 22nd-26th), all art classes will be asynchronous only. This week's lessons as usual.
Hello Parents of Artists!

Thank you for all of the ways your children have inspired me in art class this year thus far!

You have some amazing, talented, funny, and clever children. A reminder that your child has an Asynchronous and a Live art class EVERY WEEK at a specific, given time. Don’t know the time? Please email me or their classroom teacher. 

If for some reason your child cannot make the Live weekly class, there are BRAND NEW lessons posted every week on the ART SEESAW platform. I look at the turned in artwork and give personal notes back to EVERY single project turned in by the end of the day.

There are a lot of frustrating things brought on by the pandemic but one of the WONDERFUL things is me getting to hear about your child’s thinking when creating. When I am in the art room teaching there is rarely time for that! Please encourage your child to join me in one way or another.

Another Art Supply Pick-up Coming Up On Friday, Feb. 26th, 2-4 PM
We are planning another art supply pick-up on Friday, February 26th from 2:00-4:00 PM. I would love to work with some new mediums so want to make sure everyone has them in their home.

We will also have some Hayhurst husky profiles and/or hearts made out of wood to paint and be displayed on the fences around our school. Those will be provided to you later. 

Volunteer Opportunity: Help Prepare and Distribute Art Supplies
If you can help with the organizing (for example: wind thread around a piece of cardboard for 100 kids, put masking tape around some sharp edges of copper foil, make yarn bundles) and/or delivery of supplies not picked up, please let me know

Thank You
Thank you for all the effort and work you are putting into keeping your student engaged and learning!

FYI: Foothills Soccer Club Spring 2021 Recreational program

Due to COVID, Foothills Soccer Club had to cancel both seasons in 2020. Spring 2021 program details now available (program should open for games only on Saturdays). 

Foothills has a return-to-play protocol in place. Families can review this policy as well as find the link to registration on Foothills’ website

The registration fee this year has been frozen at $70 per child to help offset the cost of field rentals. A substantial scholarship program that covers 10%-100% of this fee is available to all families regardless of their financial background. 

Foothills is a volunteer run, not-for-profit club which depends on community support to help us in our mission to create a lifelong love of soccer in our kids. 

Find Details on Foothills’ Website

FYI: SWPLL Baseball and Softball Registration Open
