What is happening with the commemorative pavers?
We’ve sold an amazing 88 pavers so far! Let’s get to our goal of 100 by the end of March. Pavers are still $250 and order forms are online on the playground page or in front of Lynn Baker/Volunteer Coordinator’s office. If you know any alumni that might be interested in purchasing a paver, be sure to send them the link to our blog or playground webpage.

What’s next for the playground?
We have formed a Play Structure Committee. This group will meet this month to begin the effort of deciding what elements may work for the play structure. There will be an opportunity for the students and community to view the options and vote. Then we go out to bid with a request for proposal to qualified vendors. ...

Bin of water balloons in various pastel colors.

We had excellent weather for our 2nd Annual Water Balloon Toss today on the John Hay playground. Ms. Anderson and Ms. Beaury's Kindergarten class and Ms. Hansen's 3rd grade class both achieved 100% on their envelope returns during this year's Annual Fund and therefore had the opportunity to throw water balloons at Assistant Principal Berkenwald. Many other classes came out to cheer them on and Mr. B got SOAKED! Everyone had a blast! Mr. B even stuck around to finish off the remaining balloons in a distance toss.


Thank you to all our Jaguar families for working together to make your Annual Fund such a huge success! You make John Hay an extraordinary place to learn and play. 

Thank you to Samantha Bayne for planning and executing today's ...
