The Hayhurst Parent Teacher Association builds community, encourages a love of learning, and supports students, educators, and families with programs and activities. Volunteering at Hayhurst School is a way for parents, guardians, grandparents, friends and community members to show Hayhurst kids how much they value education. There are many different ways to get involved and you can choose a commitment that works for you. As we like to say, "many hands make light work."
