Give a HAND Update:
Thank you to everyone who has given a HAND to the playground! In just 7 days, we have raised $2,983 towards our new playground! Add an additional $815 coming in from our neighbors in the community and that brings our total to $3,798! Totally amazing. Remember, you can buy hands at drop-offs and pick-ups most school days and through this website by clicking on the "Helping Hands" tab.
Next week, ghosts, pumpkins, and spiders will be taking over our hand fundraiser - from October 26th through October 29th, students can bring in any amount and decorate our spider web to show their support! The first 50 students to empty their piggy banks will receive a $5 gift certificate to Sunny's Legendary Frozen Yogurt! Thank you Sunny's!
We'll be back to our regular programming the following two weeks before ending our fundraiser with a fun Civil War-themed version! Stay tuned!
Phase I Update:
If you have not had an opportunity to do so, please stop by and say goodbye to our wood play structure tomorrow. After 31 years of entertaining children and providing the occasional splinter, it is officially coming down! Performance Homes will be hard at work starting Wednesday preparing for the installation of the first phase of our playground. If the stars align, the new components will be up and ready for use by Tuesday, October 27th! Several awesome past and present Hayhurst parents have offered to help Performance Homes with the installation this weekend. If you have experience in construction, or putting together you kids' toys, and are interested in volunteering, please email Courtney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, we wanted to point out Dave and Tina Cady at Performance Homes are generously donating their time to excavate, site prep, and install the first phase of the playground. If you happen to be in the neighborhood while they are hard at work, please stop by and say thank you! Once the installation is complete, we will have a large poster for all to sign and thank Performance Homes. If you have any other creative ideas on how to thank them, please email Courtney at email@example.com.
Dream Big Sponsors Update:
