Adopt A Spot

Adopt-a-Spot at Hayes Elementary School!

The beautification of the Hayes Elementary School grounds began in April and continues due to the efforts of the Yost Family! Mia Yost put a call out for Hayes Families to Adopt-a-Spot. Families would plant and care for their adopted spot over  the summer. Mia and husband Al cleaned out the island  area,  prepared for planting, set up a watering schedule, and Al made family markers to identify each area! Thank you families! The Adopt-a-Spot areas are beautiful!

See all of the adopt-a-spots in the gallery.

Summer Reading

Dear Family,

Although the school year is over, we hope you will continue with your child’s educational development! Reading is the key to academic success! We are providing you with Reading Logs to chart your child’s reading over the summer. A set reading time for 20 minutes per day would be optimal to ensure an increase in the skill of reading. I would encourage your child to read any books in areas of interest to them. The Lakewood library’s Librarians are always willing to help locate books for your child…they are an invaluable resource! You can add any reading you do with the Lakewood Library Program as your minutes.

When school begins in August have your child bring their completed Reading logs back, we will have a special treat for all of the students who read 600 minutes or more! Thank you for continuing your child’s education during the summer vacation period. Have a wonderful and happy summer! 


Together We Can,

Mrs. Powers & The Hayes Staff
