Agenda

Tiger Wall of Fame

We are pleased to announce that we are re-establishing the efforts of honoring graduates from Hayden High through the Tiger Wall of Fame.  While we hope to make some changes to the process in the near future, we want to move forward with what is in place and start honoring one graduate each year.  On our district website under District Information then Information, you will find an Alumni link.  On the page, it describes what is currently in place and has access to the brochure that outlines the process and information form to complete.

We will be accepting submissions until noon on Friday, February 19, 2021 for the 2020-21 school year.  The committee put in place will review all submissions and make the final recommendation prior to the end of March. The desire is to honor the selected candidate at the awards ceremony held prior to the end of school. The ceremony will be in person if allowable.
Please submit all nominations to both Judy and Christy:

March Letter 

March 1, 2021

In like a lion and out like a lamb as the saying goes. Hopefully this will mean some snow for us.  While some don’t like the snow, it is so needed.  With March, the end of the third quarter comes as does parent teacher conferences and spring break.  The quarter ends on March 25th with parent teacher conferences being on March 24th and 25th.  Look for information to be coming soon.  Spring break is March 29th – April 1st with students returning on April 5th.

Our next virtual Parent/Community Townhall meeting is scheduled for March 3rd.  The zoom information is:

 Budget season is also upon us. We are starting to look at needs and wants for the upcoming school year. Individual meetings with department leads will start the process next week. Each lead will then work with their staff to determine what they need to continue to move forward to pursue our district goals. Funding allocations are still not fully known at this time but all indications are that they will stay flat or possibly be lower than they have been in the previous years. We will continue to work through the process to align our budget to assure fiscal responsibility.  The final budget will not be finalized by the Board of Education until June.

 We are continuing to experience some quarantines. While our numbers have stayed low, it has impacted our students and staff in numerous ways.  The social/emotional toll it plays on missing school, being away from peers, and not being able to participate in school activities has impacted all. Continuing to stay with in-person learning is our priority as we know this is what is best for our students and community.  Please help us by honoring guidelines put into place. 

 In February, we had staff training on academic vocabulary as part of our Highly Reliable Schools (HRS) work with the Marzano Institute.  The vocabulary work will become part of our curriculum dashboard and aligns key vocabulary per grade level/content to eliminate gaps that may exist.  Our March training with Marzano is focusing on assessments within the classroom.  Both these training align with our HRS certification.  On February 19th, our elementary received full Level 1 certification for Safe, Supportive, and Collaborative Culture and our secondary received a provisional certification. The secondary will revisit the certification process in September to confirm that what they have worked on this school year is fully in place.  Congratulations to both schools on the work, accomplishment, and focus that has gone into making this a reality. We will continue to move forward and work on achieving Level 2 certification for Effective Teaching in Every Classroom. 

 February staff that was recognized for their dedication and hard work that was above and beyond were Mariah Woodley at the elementary level, Lexi Cyphers at the secondary level, and Danielle Campbell at the district level. Thank you for all you do for our students, district, and community! Students honored include Jayden Stone, Kasey Singer, and Michael Pitney. Thank you for your dedication and continued hard work. Congratulations to all! 

Respectfully,

Christy L. Sinner, Superintendent
