Welcome to the Hayden Elementary School Family! We would like to extend a warm welcome to a new school year. I am extremely excited to be back at Hayden as I start my seventh year as principal. I am also very excited to welcome our new assistant principal Christy Luckey. The staff and I are looking forward to working with you and your children this year.

 Here ay Hayden:

  • We understand the work we do every day is important and it's critical we start everyday with a clean slate and positive intent for every student.
  • We understand our job goes beyond just the academics, it's imperative we pay attention to the education of the whole child including physical, civic and social emotional learning.
  • We understand we must  be intentional about communicating with families both our concerns and our celebrations for their child.
  • We understand relationships are the avenue in which we can engage students in impactful learning opportunities that will prepare them to be successful adults.
  • We understand we're here for the kids and every decision we make is done with them in mind.



Families, thank you for entrusting us with your student(s). It's not a job we take lightly. We encourage you to stop by anytime and volunteer or to visit us. You were their first and remain the most impactful teacher they will ever have and we look forward to partnering with you in your student's educational journey.


Additionally, our goal is to encourage more parents to become involved with our School Site Council, PTA, and to volunteer either in or outside of the classroom. As you know, it takes a team of parents, teachers, and administrators to ensure the academic success of your child.


We are looking forward to seeing and working with you this year. Go Hawks!
