Partners » Donations At Work
Your generous donations are what sets John Hay apart and makes it a better school for your kids. It takes approximately $300,000 a year to provide academic support and curriculum enrichment for every student at John Hay. The following is a list of programs that your dollars support.
Specialists providing a Reduction in Class Size (RCS) for all classrooms K-5, in one core subject per day - Full time and part time teachers who team with the home room teachers in every grade resulting in smaller class sizes for reading and math instruction thereby allowing each student to be taught at his/her instructional level.
4 Days of LAP- In partnership with the federal funding provided to Hay under the Learning Assistance Program, The Foundation provides additional funding to provide a Learning Assistance teacher to students 4 days per week. This position supports those readers who need a little extra help to reach state standards in reading.
Counselor- The Foundation shares the cost of a counselor with the district so we can increase the counselor's time spent at Hay to fill our needs.
4th-5th Grade Instrumental Music- Your Foundation dollars double the instrumental music instruction provided by the district, allowing our instrumental music teacher to be on site one full day a week. This provision allows all interested 4th and 5th grade students the opportunity to learn to play the instrument of their choice.
Technology Equipment – Specifically a new 10’ screen, environmental enhancements, and capacity switches support our new Computer Lab which serves all students k-5, as well as our After School Coding club.
Multi Arts Equipment – Risers, Xylophones and drums, and visual art materials have been provided to the ever growing and developing Multi-Arts program.
Library and PE Supplies not provided by district – Books, equipment, and other materials that serve to enhance Library Science and Physical Education instruction.
Volunteer Coordinator – Serving the needs of students, staff and parents through recruitment, training, and screening of hundreds of volunteers. This position also serves as an important liaison between the Partners Board, our staff and families.
