In addition, the note below will be coming home regarding our all school picnic on Wednesday, May 31st…

Dear Families,

On Wednesday, May 31st we will be having a PBIS celebration to recognize your child’s positive behavior. This month’s celebration theme is All School Picnic! We will be having our picnic outside, so let’s hope the weather stays pleasant!

Your child may bring a towel or blanket to sit on during the picnic, and we strongly encourage students bring a brown bag lunch since we will be eating outside. However, lunch will still be available for purchase in the cafeteria.

Thank you,

Haigh PBIS Committee

Haigh Field Day, Wednesday, May 24th!!

Your child will be bringing home the following letter:

Dear Parents and Guardians,

To help us celebrate another fantastic school year, we will be having Field Day on Wednesday, May 24, 2017.  For this Field Day event students will work through stations with their class to develop skills they have learned in physical education and have tons of fun!  The schedule for the event is as follows:

9:00 AM – 11:00 AM Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Grades

11:30 AM – 12:30 PM All School Picnic

1:00 PM – 3:00 PM 3rd, 4th and 5th Grades

On May 24, students need to wear clothes that will allow them to be physically active outside, including tennis shoes.  They need to bring a water bottle.  There will be a station to refill bottles if needed.  Students are highly encouraged to bring a bagged lunch to enjoy at the all school picnic.  They are welcome to bring a towel or blanket to sit on as well.  Students will be able to purchase school lunch if necessary.

We are looking for one parent from each classroom to donate a treat for the entire class to enjoy after their session.  Please contact your child’s classroom teacher if you are interested in proving a treat.

Lastly, we need 15 parent volunteers for both sessions to help run stations.  If you are interested in volunteering, fill out the lower portion and return it to Mr. Peecher.  Please, contact Mr. Peecher with any questions.

Thanks!  The PBIS/Field Day Committee  peechers@dearbornschools.org

Volunteers Needed for PBIS Carnival

This is a follow-up message to the note sent home with your student on Friday…

Haigh Families,

Next Wednesday, April 26th, we will be hosting our second annual HAIGH CARNIVAL for our April PBIS celebration. Students who have maintained positive behavior will have the opportunity to attend the carnival and play some awesome games and even win some prizes!

However, the event can only be a success with your help and donations. Below is a list of items that we are in need of for our celebration. If you are able to contribute or donate in any way, it would be GREATLY appreciated. You can turn in all donations to your child’s teacher.

We are asking that donations be turned in by Monday, April 24th.

  • Empty cardboard boxes (all sizes and shapes needed)
  • Hershey’s Kisses
  • Washable tattoos
  • DumDum suckers
  • Fake frogs (rubber/silicone)
  • Solo cups
  • Cotton Candy buckets (Wal-Mart?)

This is a whole school event, so we will need as many donations as possible (we have almost 500 students!).

We are also in need of volunteers to help run stations at the carnival. If you are able to volunteer your time, it would also be appreciated. The time slots are as follows:

A.M. session – 8:50-11:30                          P.M. session – 1:30-3:15

We need 7 A.M. volunteers and 7 P.M. volunteers. If you are able to volunteer, please e-mail Ms. Otto at ottoc@dearbornschools.org to sign-up 🙂

Thank you for all of your help and continued support!

A few reminders…

WOW it is the middle of April!

We are starting the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (MStep) today.  We will continue testing through the first week of May as the Northwest Education Association (NWEA) will overlap with the MStep.  Please encourage your child to do their best.

Today your child will bring home a permission slip for a field trip to see the play, Aladdin, being performed by Stout middle school students.  We will go by school bus on the morning of Thursday, April 20th.  It is $1.00.  Please sign and return the permission slip by Wednesday.

Don’t forget about the upcoming Haigh BBQ on Thursday, April 20th!

There is no school Friday and Monday, 4/17 is Spring Picture Day.  Your child should have brought home an order form yesterday if you are interested in ordering pictures.

Hope you have a nice, long weekend!
