A message from the Principal...

Our Admin Team has spent some quality time in the Hayes Café over the past week. We are pleased to announce a win-win solution to our capacity issue and will be able to implement it beginning the week of September 9, 2019. Parents and guest visitors are now wel-come to eat lunch with students again, HOWEVER, the student and guest may not be able to sit at the same table with the class. The student and guest may need to be seated at a table where seats are available.
I wish to thank you all for your patience and cooperation as we worked through this challenge. Your understanding was much appreciated.
Sincerely, Teressa R. Watson

Congratulations to our August Teacher of the Month:

Charleston Wrap Fundraiser packets came home this week. Please help the PTSA raise money for our school to fund our Free Family Events, Support Students and Teachers, and for School Improvements. 25% of each sale comes back to Hayes and will directly benefit all students. Please help Hayes PTSA make this fundraiser successful by selling these great products.

Congratulations to our 2019-2020 Hayes Teacher of the Year and Hayes Classified Employee of the Year!

At Hayes, we love and respect parents as being the very first teachers of our students. As we assume the responsibility for providing formal education in a school setting, we want to form partnerships with our parents to ensure the success of all students. To that end, we encourage parents to be engaged in the activities and events here at school. We are open to new ideas for parents, but currently have the following opportunities available:

Field trip chaperones
Room Moms
School Council
Title I Planning Committee
Watch DOGS
Volunteers: classrooms, media center, and office

Should you wish to participate in one of these activities or have a proposal
for other engagement ideas, please contact Pam Walker at pamela.walker@cobbk12.org.


Birthday announcements are sold on a first-come basis. This purchase entitles your birthday child’s name to be displayed on the marque, mentioned on afternoon announcements and put in the Hayes’ Happenings on/around his or her birthday. The name will be up from the opening of school until 3:00 pm that same school day (or longer) provided the application and payment have been received in advance. Birthday applications must be received at least two weeks in advance.
