Dear Hayes Intermediate School Families,

Here is some news to get us into the weekend…

Parent/Teacher Conferences
Parent/Teacher Conferences conclude today. We hope that the conversations that you have had with your student’s teachers have been fruitful.

How are we doing?
Thank you so much for the responses, especially for the detailed feedback we have received. We will use this feedback in future planning. To ensure that we have captured as much information as possible, we will keep the short communication survey open throughout the weekend. If you have not already responded, please click here to give us feedback on a 2 question survey.

Join Middle School Competitive Cheer

6th, 7th, & 8th grade students can join competitive cheer.  This sport includes all aspects of MHSAA cheer – cheer, motions, jumps, tumbling, and so much more. Coaches will train athletes by promoting positivity and building up strong, confident, respectful athletes while having fun, teaching lessons through teamwork, and making memories that will last a lifetime.  Learn more and register on the Community Recreation website:
