Riding in style!!! Hay Springs Schools’ first Suburban is now in and has been in for about a week. It is a brand new, gold 2011 Chevy Suburban. The next two should arrive in a couple weeks. Mr. Pummel wants us all to remember to take care when riding in any school vehicle so they will last as long as possible.
Mrs. Mandelko commented, “It’s awesome and very much needed.”
The Hay Springs School is no longer requiring the green activity slips this year. Any students who leave for a school related activity are responsible for getting all their work together and turning it in on time. Assignments are due the very next day the students return to class.
The public has been contacting the school and asking how to obtain keys for the Lister Sage Community Building.
The school is only responsible for giving out keys to the coaches. The keys that the coaches have are normal keys that work in every door entering the facility. Keys that are available to the public are button keys. These keys are magnetic and only work on one door entering the upper balcony of the gym. If you are interested in acquiring a key for your personal use please contact Seth Terrell, at 308-232-4680. To get a key you must be at least eighteen years of age and need to be very responsible. The cost of the key is $25.
Moo! Mrs. Olsen was the winner of the strange phrase contest in the last school news letter.
Mrs. Olsen won a free ticket to any one of the Hawks events.
Look for the strange phrase in the next news letter!
No school on Fridays! There is no longer school on Fridays at Hay Springs for money saving reasons.
This affects everyone from students to staff to the community. Students and staff can sleep in on Fridays but parents have to find day care for their children on Fridays. Students can also work in the community on Fridays without missing school.
The school days are longer. They are forty five minutes longer then they have been in the past.
The school year is still basically the same length but there is just a few more minutes than in earlier years.
Zoe quotes, “I’m not sure if I like it yet, I’m still getting used to it.”
Skyler quotes, “I love waking up on Friday and knowing that I still have two more days before Monday.”
