Action Required:
Haisley Community Survey

We want to hear from you! Each year the staff and PTO at Haisley field a host of questions regarding food in the classroom. To help establish a baseline for public opinion we've created a community survey. The last page includes a few additional questions about our communication tools. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey. Once collected, results will be shared with the entire community.

In Memorial, Mike Brueger
Last week our community lost a great man. Haisley Parent Mike Brueger passed away unexpectedly January 18th.  Many members of the Haisley family have stepped forward offering to help. A fund has been established to aid in financing college for Mike's children. Those interested can send a donation to Old National Bank, 2723 S State St., Ann Arbor, MI 48104. Please make checks payable to Sheryl Brueger.
