Dear Hayes Intermediate Families,

Here is some news to get us into the weekend…

Potter Park Zoo Field Trip

5th Graders will be going to Potter Park Zoo this coming Tuesday May 28th and 6th Graders on June 5th! Due to the generous support of the PTO (and the fundraising efforts of Hayes Intermediate Families), all students will be able to attend at no cost to them. Please note: parents who are serving as chaperones will be responsible for paying their own admission to the zoo.

Volunteers and Chaperones

We currently need parents to help chaperone field days in June! Click Here to fill out our volunteer registration form if you would like to see your student in action on Field Day!

Volunteer registration can take up to a week to process so please fill it out on or before May 29th!

How is Your Student Getting Home? Let us know by 2:00 PM

If your student  is getting home a different way than normal please call the office by 2:00 pm to let the secretaries know of the change. After 2pm we cannot guarantee that the message will get to your student. 

PM Back Carline Update

The PM back carline is still open to all 6th Grade families! It has been a great success, with most families in and out in a few minutes. The back carline is accessed from the Grand Ledge Public Schools Operations Drive (Penny Lane) for parents to pick up students in the afternoon. The back carline is accessible to 6th graders from either the Band Room or from Door #11. If you want your student to use the back carline, please let them know. Otherwise, 6th graders can still continue to use the front carline if you prefer.

Puberty: The Wonder Years

5th and 6th grade students started receiving instruction from the curriculum Puberty: The Wonder Years this week. Students may bring homework assignments home that encourage them to discuss issues related to puberty, relationships, and sexual behavior with their families. If a parent is not available for these assignments, parents are asked to help their students identify another trusted adult with whom they can talk. Families have expressed appreciation for this family discussion tool.

Dates to be aware of:

5/1 Curriculum resource available for review

5/10 Permission slips returned

5/21 PWY Kickoff

6/7 PWY Finale
