Hello Hayes Intermediate Families!

Today was a day filled with celebration here at Hayes Intermediate School! Thank you so much for the abundant amount of treats that you sent along with your students to fuel our day. Most importantly, thank you for the privilege of working with your student! We hope you have a wonderful holiday season.

Winter Break

Winter Break runs from December 22 through January 7. We look forward to resuming school again on January 8. 

In Case You Missed It…

The Enrichment programs at Hayes Intermediate were featured recently in an article in the Lansing State Journal and also in the Schools Rule segment on WILX. Check them out and see our students and teachers in action!

Girls Who Code

The Girls Who Code Club will focus on three main things that we hope club members get out of their experience: Coding, Sisterhood and real-world relevance and impact. The club will be meeting once a week on Tuesdays at Hayes Intermediate from 2:30-3:30, starting the first week after the holiday break. If your child is interested in being part of our club, please email Mrs. Short (shortj@glcomets.net) or Mrs. Lee (Leek@glcomets.net) by TODAY, Thursday, December 21st. In the email include your child’s first and last name and homeroom teacher. Once information is received from a parent/guardian, an email will come from Girls Who Code HQ inviting the student to register and join the program.
