What's New at John Hay?

WELCOME BACK! Please check out our latest blog post from Principal Beach. There is a ton of information in this post about the new playground, drop off and pick up, upcoming events, new teachers, and more, so don't miss it!

COME SAY HI! We'll be hosting two meet and greets at John Hay next week: one for our new families and one for our Special Education families. Since so many new families were assigned to Hay after we had completed our tours, we have scheduled one to take place the day before school begins for all of our new families. Please meet on September 4th at 2PM in the Main Hallway (through the front doors). That same day, we have scheduled a meet and greet for all of our Special Education families at 3PM. Bring the kids, meet your new teachers, and see your new classrooms! We look forward to see you all!

WHO IS YOUR TEACHER? Curious about who will be teaching your child(ren) this year? Parents will be receiving an email from your child(ren)'s new teacher on Thursday, August 30th, usually toward the end of the day. Class lists will be posted on the doors of John Hay at 4PM that same day. Just a few more days to wait! Any questions? Please email

THE LISTS ARE UP! We've received the school supply lists for the 2018-2019 school year and they're posted here by grade level. They're different than last year, so be sure to check them out before you make any purchases. Thanks!

YOU DID IT!! We have the results from our Spring Fundraiser for the playground. We raised an amazing $40,675!!! You, the generous parents and families of our John Hay students made this happen. We thank you! These funds will make for an amazing playground for our kids and community. Construction should be starting very soon.

WE'RE BANANAS FOR HANNAH! Meet Hannah Hansen, one of John Hay Elementary's sensational 3rd grade teachers. You may have seen her at one of our school events, dressed as an avocado, and surrounded by an adoring gaggle of kiddos. She definitely has a BIG fan base at John Hay!
