Do you know our school song?


Do you know our school song, One Happy Family?  It is sung at many of our events, and all of our students learn it!  We hope you will, too!


One Happy Family!


We are a family

at Haynes Street school so come and see,

We come from near and far to be,

(hand jive)

one happy family.


At Haynes we learn to do

the skills we need, both me and you,

For a better world and point of view

(hand jive)

as one big family.


We come from east and west,

and we all try to do our best

to learn the most and pass the test,

(hand jive)

as one big family.


Teachers, students, young and old,

keep on smiling brave and bold.

Together we will meet our goals,

(hand jive)

as one big family.

Get your collection sheet HERE!

Thanks so much for helping!




Wednesdays and Fridays after school for just $1 – enjoy a refreshing treat!  We’re asking for a little help from you –

Can you donate popsicles?  Please bring them after school to the Cafeteria tables!  Can you help out for 20 minutes after school on a Wednesday or Friday?  (does not have to be every week!)  If so, please contact your Room Parent and let them know!


You may have heard already – we are doing our best to save our paper and printing for curricular materials only!  So we’re drastically reducing the number of informational flyers coming home – please be sure you sign up to receive our email communications and check information coming from your Room Parent!  Stay tuned for a contest to help encourage us to receive and read the email blasts!

5th Grade Healthy Snack Shack



Tuesdays after school, for just $1, 5th Grade invites you to come purchase a healthy snack!  Various snacks, fruits, cheeses, water, sparkling fruit water and other delicious healthy choices available.  Snacks will vary from week to week depending on demand.



Pizza Thursday is Back!


Welcome to Fresh Brothers, with whole wheat crust, top quality mozzarella and sauce, at just $2/slice!  Pepperoni or cheese, see you after school!

Can you help after school for 20 minutes?  Please contact your Room Parent and let them know!  Thank you!



$20/month ensures each student’s academic needs.  Your teachers and parents ask you to please consider giving as generously as you can so each child may have the tools they need.  Donations are tax deductible and easily made through our website or by filling out our donation form (click here).

Our status as a Charter kept us from losing funding for existing programs, but there are essential items for which the District does not provide.  Please see our School Status Report here to see how we get our money and to where it is committed!

After School RULES


Per the District’s policy, after school, the yard is open ONLY TO STUDENTS SECOND THROUGH FIFTH GRADES.  Kindergartners and first graders MAY NOT be on campus after school, even with an older sibling, for their safety.  The Youth Services division of the LAUSD (Beyond The Bell)  provides one coach to monitor the entire yard after school. The Youth Services program is an open-campus program, which means that students do not need to sign-out to leave the campus.  Students are free to leave the campus, so please speak to your child regularly regarding your expectations of him/her walking home, going to a friend’s house, or staying on campus to wait for you.  Preplan with your children and communicate with them every morning about that day’s after school plan for everyone’s safety!
