Mrs. Holly Hayes
Hello. I am Mrs. Hayes. I have been at Grants Pass High School since 2002. I am the counselor primarily for students with last names beginning with Ro - Z and some others.
If you are struggling or have questions, please email me. It is the best and quickest way to reach me. I will get back to you.
A little bit about myself...I grew up in Oregon in a very small southern Oregon town. I graduated from Oregon State University with a Bachelor's degree in Human Development and Family Studies and received my Masters degree in School Counseling from Northwest Christian University. My kids attended and graduated from GPHS and attended Oregon State. My husband also attended Oregon State. Go Beavs! In my free time, I enjoy gardening, creating stained glass, swimming, walking, riding bikes, etc. I enjoy the outdoors whenever I get the chance.
My message to you today is to....Enjoy every moment as they go by so quickly. Live in the now and keep moving forward. Don't let fear hold you back from your dreams. Be respectful of yourself and others around you. We all make mistakes in life (it's called life lessons) and we must learn from them and move forward so that we don't continue to repeat them. Forgive yourself and others as we are all human and will make mistakes but you must keep moving forward in your life.
This is a monumental time for change and growth for the whole world. I am here to help you. Remember it is a temporary situation and will resolve in time. Focus on doing your part to create a better, more caring world that will come because of what we are experiencing right now. Be there for each other (from a distance). Take time for personal reflection and growth and to plan your bright future for after this resolves.
Stay home, stay safe and be healthy. I hope you find peace and laughter in every day and happiness in your life.
