The Josiah Haynes School is an extraordinary school community. Community and excellence are the hallmarks of our school. The students are kind to one another, well behaved, independent, responsible, and able to enjoy considerable amounts of freedom in the building. They are constantly seen moving about on their own, having quickly internalized the expectations of the larger school environment. They easily rise to these expectations and thrive as trusted, capable, valued members of our community. Staff and parents work closely, sincerely respecting and acknowledging each others’ contributions and achievements. Haynes enjoys tremendous parental support and involvement throughout the school. In addition, adults model the social behaviors that are the foundation of the Haynes school culture through example, which are then mirrored by the children.
Since community is the essence of the Haynes spirit, we continually work to nurture and support this value. The school begins and ends each week with school meetings, opportunities to gather and share achievements of individuals, classes, and small groups. The meetings are one of the major external signs of our good health as a successful school. Each classroom also begins each day with a gathering of students and their teacher(s). In summary, our educational journey is supported through the power and support of our community.

Haynes Community Behavior Chart
On that fateful morning of April 19, 1775, Deacon Haynes, although approaching his eightieth year, hearing the alarm, dressed quickly, bade his family a hasty good-bye and marched to Concord with Captain Aaron Haynes and his company of Militia. Upon approaching the South Bridge, where a British guard was known to be, the Deacon urged an attack upon the enemy to drive them from the area. However, the Company was under orders not to commence an attack and proceeded around the village to the North Bridge where the first shots of the Battle of Concord had just been fired.
In spite of his nearly four scores, Deacon Haynes still retained so much energy and patriotism that he joined the pursuit of the retreating enemy until he was killed by a British musket ball when nearing Lexington. His gravestone in the Old Cemetery in Sudbury Center bears this epitaph:
In memory of Deacon Josiah Haynes who died in Freedom's cause ye 19th day of April 1775; in the 79th year of his Age.
