Leader In Me

At Hayes Elementary, our Leadership Program provides students with tools to develop into leaders who will impact community and global change! The Leader in Me is a schoolwide process that develops staff and students as leaders and thereby transforms the culture and performance of the school. We seamlessly integrate leadership development into daily curriculum, activities and systems to create a culture where every student is encouraged to set and achieve meaningful goals, be a positive influence on others, and use his or her individual gifts to better the world. Be a part of the GREAT that happens here at Hayes Elementary School!

Walton Parent Math Night

What a great turnout we had for our Walton Ridenour “Parent Math Night”!  Thank you to Walton for hosting us and allowing us to connect with our parents.  Our parents left with some great activities, resources and knowledge about the content that their child is learning.  We couldn’t have asked for a better event!

Hayes Elementary has been identified as a Focus school according to the definition contained in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) waiver granted to the State of Georgia in February of 2012. Hayes’ Focus school designation is due to an achievement gap between student groups identified from 2010-2011 school data. Focus schools must offer a Flexible Learning Program (FLP) designed to increase academic achievement. The Hayes Elementary FLP program addresses the subject of math. The FLP program will provide afterschool tutoring on Mondays and Thursdays to identified 3rd grade through 5th grade students. The FLP program will provide tutoring to Kindergarten, 1stgrade, and 2nd grade students twice a week during the student’s specials schedule. All of the instruction will be conducted by certified teachers. If you have more questions about the Flexible Learning Program or the ESEA waiver please click on the link below or contact Denise Walker at Hayes Elementary.
