Dear Hayes Intermediate Families,


All School Read Begins TODAY, sponsored by our PTO

Beginning today, our whole school is taking part in a special, community-wide shared reading event.

As of today, every family has received a free copy of the same book  – When Stars Are Scattered by Victoria Jamieson and Omar Mohamed – and will be asked to read it together at home in February and March. We ask you to set aside time so that your family can participate in this special activity, using the calendar and book sent home with your student on Thursday or Friday of this past week. Here is a copy of the Reading Calendar . Here is a video trailer of the book. We are excited to participate in this event together! Students who return signed reading logs to school after you have read with them will be eligible to receive prizes.

Math Night

The first annual Hayes Math Night, held this past Wednesday, was a great success with over 110 people attending. Thank you to our PTO and our generous donors Grand Ledge McDonalds, Grand Ledge Meijer, and Grand Ledge A&W.

Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run begins February 26th and lasts for 10 weeks. It meets Mondays and Thursdays from 2:30-4:00 PM. Coaches will be Shannon Bauer, Julie Kushman, Zykia Davis, and Karlee Fillmore. Interested students should pick up a flier in the main office. 

PTO Board Needs Members

The Hayes-Beagle Parent Teacher Organization has worked hard to provide opportunities for students and staff over the past 3 years that would not have been available without a PTO. Several PTO Board members will be leaving the PTO as their students age into High School. The commitment is as little as an hour a month for the meeting and you can help with fun jobs such as buying treats for students and staff. You can also help plan the dances and other activities that your student will participate in! Without a board, the PTO is legitimately in danger of ceasing to exist. Please come to the next meeting on March 19th at the Beagle Middle School Media Center at 6:30 PM to find out more. You can also join via Zoom -

International Day

We invite you to join us for International Day this year on April 13 from 2-6 at Beagle Middle School. International Day is a day to celebrate our cultural diversity and to learn from each other!  There are many different ways to participate in this special day. You may simply attend and enjoy watching performances, looking at displays or admiring clothing. Or, you may wish to create a display, perform or be a part of the fashion show (please sign up using the provided forms). We look forward to seeing you and your family!

Hayes Happenings

Hayes Happenings is our weekly news show that is student directed, produced, and edited under the guidance of teachers Jacque Cosgrove and Allison Shumate. Each Monday, the class analyzes and critiques the episode from the previous week as they improve over the course of the trimester.
