Happenings at Haycock
Kindergarten orientation for the 2014-2015 school year will be Monday, March 24 beginning at 2:00pm with paperwork submission. Avoid the long lines and get your paperwork done early - information and forms for kindergarten registration are available here. If you have questions regarding student registration, please contact Haycock's Student Information Assistant, Karlie Lowe. During orientation, students and parents will participate in a tour and scavenger hunt, and then students will visit the classrooms while parents are able to meet in the orientation meeting.

Help Us Reduce Waste!
One of our goals at Haycock this year is to reduce the amount of waste generated in our cafeteria. We have implemented a new, multi-faceted plan in our cafeteria, but we need your help with two aspects to be successful.
1. We have made an arrangement to donate unopened food to Columbia @ Crossroads food pantry. Our 6th grade Green Team members are sorting, logging and packing up the food but we need adults to drive the boxes to the food pantry every Friday between 2:00 and 3:00pm.
2. We are taking advantage of an opportunity at Luther Jackson Middle School to melt and compact our polystyrene trays so that we use fewer trash bags and free up space in our dumpster. We need the bagged trays delivered to Luther Jackson MS in Merrifield every Wednesday and Friday or Saturday.
If you are interested, you will find more information and be able to pick your time slot using Sign-Up Genius at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0B45A9A623A75-haycocks/4339689 Thanks for supporting our environmental efforts!
Families who wish to register personally owned computing devices for use during the school day should review Haycock's Bring Your Own Device policy, available on our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) page, for all the necessary details. Students can register devices on the first, third, and, if applicable, fifth Tuesday of each month. Please be sure to check out our BYOD Registration Page, as there are preliminary steps in the registration process that need to be completed prior to students bringing devices in for final registration.
