Dear Hayes Intermediate School Families,

Here is some news to get us into the weekend…

Day of Awesomeness Complete
Today was a day of celebration as Hayes students enjoyed bouncy amusements, a live DJ, and organized games during the Day of Awesomeness. This event concludes our wildly successful PTO fundraiser. We want to give a special thank you to Kristy Welch (PTO President), the PTO Board, and all of the parents who were able to come help chaperone this event. Please join us at the next PTO meeting on October 17th at 6:30 PM in the Beagle Middle School cafeteria. A Zoom option will be linked in next week’s newsletter.

Safety Drill Review
This past Monday, we completed our first required lockdown drill. The Grand Ledge Police department participated in the drill and students and staff all had the opportunity to practice.

There are several ways to report an absence at Hayes. The fastest way is using the online portal at ps.glcomets.net.
