Partners in Education 

Vision: To enrich the learning experience for Cobb’s children so that all learners will engage in life-long learning.  This will develop both a strong academic foundation, skills and values to successfully engage in community life and a career.

Our Purpose: Partners in Education is designed to establish a voluntary relationship between a business/organization and a school in order to:

·       Support and enrich the education of students

·       Encourage and support school, faculty and staff

·       Promote community strength and identify needs

·       Provide business employees/organization members the opportunity to bring business into the schools by working with students and teachers 

Over the years Hayes Elementary School has worked closely with our community to continue to grow into the great school that it is today!  Our Partners In Education have invested their time, talents and resources to support Hayes.  It is a goal of the Chamber of Commerce and Hayes Elementary to make our partnerships mutually beneficial.  Partnerships should be about both parties giving and receiving.  We are excited about the ways that we can give back to our partners this year with student art work, patronage of businesses, assist partners with community service projects and lots more.  We are so grateful for everything that our Partners in Education do, from extra funding, services and volunteer support, to help Hayes continue to charge forward in education.
