The Haisley Players present Schoolhouse Rock LIVE! Jr. this Thursday and Friday at 7:30 pm in the multipurpose room. The suggested ticket donation is $4 at the door. There will also be a free in-school performance at 2 pm on Thursday

If you’ve ever thought about stepping forward now is the time. The fall auction raises nearly 40% of the PTO budget. Planning for fall has stalled pending a leadership committee. We need of 3-5 parents to organize and facilitate the event. Individual duties that need to be completed include invitations & marketing, food & decorations, acquisitions and close administration. If we do not have volunteers by May we will cancel the 2015 auction. That will seriously jeopardize PTO funding for our next school year. Help save our enrichment activities! Those interested should contact Jen Sauld ( or Jimmy Simonte (, cell:734-358-0095).
Dough Night is Thursday the 26th
Order Domino’s Pizza this Thursday and Domino’s will DONATE 25% OF YOUR NET SALE back to your school. Over $5,800 has been raised to date! Please see the attached flyer for more information.


2015 Haisley Walkathon News

Hello Haisley Families:
The 2015 Haisley Walkathon is just around the corner!  This year the event is scheduled forThursday, May 21st. The lower el will walk from 9:30-11:30am and the upper el will walk from 1:30-3:30pm.  WE NEED YOUR HELP to make this event a success. Here are a few ways you may be able to help:

1)  CORPORATE DONATIONS:  Currently, I am soliciting local business to see if they can make cash donations towards our event.  Last year we raised almost $4k before the walkathon took place.  We used this money to cover the costs of t-shirts and other event day costs.

2)  VOLUNTEERS:  Please consider volunteering for this event.  Mark your calendar and let me know if you are interested in counting laps, preparing for the event on race day, and also cleaning up once the event is over!  

3)  SOLICIT CASH DONATIONS:  Every child will be sent home with an envelope requesting they raise money for the event.  Last year, we almost raised $19k.  This year, we hope to raise over $20,0000.  Please ask neighbors, friends, and family to support your child's efforts.  We will be offering on-line donations this year, so it will make it easier to donate!

Any questions?  Would you like to volunteer?  Do you have a company that would like to make a donation?  Please contact Susan Courtright:

Go Huskies!
