LATEST NEWS 

  • PTO is in the process of planning for our 2017-18 school year. You'll be receiving communications over the next few weeks asking for parent involvement in Athletics, a Social Committee, and Fundraising. Without our volunteer parents, many of the programs and events we provide are not possible. The PTO welcomes new ideas and inspiration on how to make our organization grow. We need you all to help us continue our mission of keeping Hyde Park School Happy!! 

CURRENT VOLUNTEER NEEDS
Oakley After Hours Event- HPS Volunteers Needed


Hyde Park School has been offered an exciting opportunity to partner with Oakley After Hours on May 26th in the BEER tent!! Oakley After Hours takes place on the 2nd Friday of each month from April through September and it includes live music, kids’ entertainment, beer sales, and various vendor and organization booths. It’s an all around great time for the entire family. 

OAH will donate to HPS PTO if we are able to staff  6 mighty volunteers to work the event on Friday May 26th 5:30-10:30 pm. Most of the work would be selling beer, however there may be some lifting/moving things during setup/tear down and running ice back and forth between the square and Oakley Pub.

This is a fantastic way to give back to both your community as well as your neighborhood school! Plus, it’s an extremely fun event that you’ll get to be smack in the middle of all the action. 

Please grab a group of adult friends and sign up! Additional dates are available if the signup is full and you have a group that can fill another event.



Socials Committee
Calling all event planners and lovers of fun social gathering!! Moving into the 2017-18 school year we would like to expand our offerings of community and social events. The possibilities are endless but we need volunteers to help us execute. Have you attended something at another school and think it would benefit our HPS community? Do you have an idea for a fundraising event that could help support our growing enrollment? All of this is possible if we have the involvement to support it. This is a great way to  be a part of our school community and meet other parents. It doesn't take a tcommitment to join this team, just a willingness to support the committee when you are able to.

We'd like to host a committee meeting before the end of this current school year. Please consider joining!!
