The Mobile Dentists

The mobile dentists will be at Hayden Elementary School on Tuesday, November 8. They are a group of dentists that come into the school and perform x-rays, cleanings, etc. for our students who need dental work. Please register online

In Need of STEM Supplies

In addition to STEM and hands-on activities that students experience within their classroom, each student will attend the STEM lab with their class weekly. Throughout the year we will be asking for various supplies that the students will need for this time. Below is a list of items that we currently need:

  • Half-gallon jugs
  • Large cottage cheese containers
  • Cereal boxes

Your child can bring these items to the office, STEM lab, or give them to their teacher. We appreciate any help we can get.


It is very important for students to be at school everyday, however, there are some circumstances that make this impossible. If your child is going to be absent from school, please call (812) 346-2813 and let us know. Feel free to leave a message before or during school hours.
