Hayes Bilingual received a special visit from Ravi the Recycler who usually teaches the PBIS rules, “Be Safe, Be Responsible and Be Respectful.” However, this time he was informing students how to recycle and give back with the Hayes Lego team run by coaches Ms. Sweenie & Ms. Julie. When asked about how Ravi would be impacting the school, Ms. Sweeney stated, “The The LEGO Legendaries of Hayes Bilingual have revitalized our recycling program and are researching other ways to reduce our schools‘ ecological footprint.”
Look for the Legos team around the school collecting recycling material & helping all of Hayes students & staff take care of the environment! Perhaps Ravi will make another visit in the future to check on our progress helping our community!
Check out Hayes tree @ Community Spirit Park (as part of the 2019 Milwaukee Holiday Lights Festival) in Cathedral Square Park. Hayes Bilinguals’ Theme this year was Latinidad en Navidad: Celebrating Diversity. Ornaments were decorated by Hayes classrooms using recycled material & represented all the cultures at Hayes. Student Council & ESL students partnered up to decorate the school tree on site with the guidance of Art teacher Ms. Arellano & ESL middle school teacher Ms. E. Wolters. Students decorated, were served chocolate, & received a visit from Mr. & Mrs. Santa Clause! The official lightening of the tree will be November 20, 2019 and goes until the New Year of 2020! Thank you to all the teachers & administrators who contributed in representing Hayes Bilingual & to MKE Downtown! Hayes IS PRESENT in the Milwaukee community!
Noticing freshly painted hallways and beautiful displays in the hallway? Thank the GE Volunteers & Hayes Bilingual staff for coming in this summer before school started and glistening up the school! Mrs. Arellano pictured below commented, ” The GE volunteers were very helpful with helping me make the art room as warm, safe and creative space. I’m very grateful for the volunteers who gave me an opportunity you give my Hayes students a beautiful welcoming first week of school, thank you!”
Has notado que los pasillos de nuestra escuela están pintados y hay en algunos pasillos murales, eso es gracias a los voluntarios de GE y personal de nuestra escuela que voluntariamente vinieron antes del inicio del año escolar. ¡Gracias por hermosear nuestra escuela!
¡Recuerda venir a la escuela todos los días! Las clases con un 95% o más de asistencias para el mes de septiembre ganan 30 minutos de diversión. #¡Todos los días cuentan!
The vision of Milwaukee Public Schools is to provide an equitable educational environment that is child-centered, supports achievement, and respects and embraces diversity. The district is launching a community survey designed to gather input about important education topics and is seeking the input of students, families, educators, staff and all community members. The results of the district survey will be used to determine how we can strengthen our students’ academic experiences and enrich opportunities for them.
Everyone in the city is encouraged to take the survey and attend a listening session. The survey, which takes about 10 minutes to complete, can be accessed at mpsmke.com/survey. Survey responses are confidential, and the survey will remain open until September 12, 2019.
MPS encourages attendance at a series of listening sessions designed for the community to provide feedback and help guide MPS in creating a learning community that achieves a vision. Please plan to attend one or more sessions.

Students who normally stay for the afternoon extended care program will be bused back to their regular school site at 5:00; those students who are normally bused home will continue home on the bus.
