Please come check out what our students have to offer in the arenas of song & spoken word. This event is free and open to the public.
Using a grant awarded to our school last year by Camas Education Foundation, we will begin an all-school reading project after Spring Break. The novel chosen by staff is the 2007 National Book Award winner The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie.
Due to some sensitive subject matter, students will be required to return a signed permission form before being issued a copy of the novel. Parents are welcome to check out a copy of the book from us to preview in mid-March. Please see Amy Holmes or Stephanie Spencer at the school for more information.
The staff at Hayes Freedom High School have chosen this title because of Mr. Alexie’s ability to capture the voice of an adolescent facing questions about his identity and his place in society, which we believe are relevant themes to our students.
We hope you will join us in reading & discussing this novel throughout the month of April.
Senior Kyle Treece has planned a school-wide Game Night this Friday, January 13 as part of his Senior Project.
From 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. in the HFHS Commons, students & guests are welcome to play board games and enjoy snacks.
There is no cost to participate – students are requested to bring a snack to share during the event.
