WEEKLY NEWS & UPDATES
Our mission is to develop compassionate, engaged students who are HAPPY to be at school.
 PTO elections and meeting will be held Monday, May 15th @ 8:15 a.m.  Room 139 (Music Room)
Thank You!

We are so thankful for all your generous donations that made Staff Appreciation Week successful. Through all of your help we were able to provide a full continental breakfast, a floral arrangement, and a catered luncheon to each and every member of the Hyde Park School staff. That's almost 65 people!!

Box Tops For Education

This is the final week we'll be collecting box tops. Friday, May 12th will be the last pickup, so send in all that you have! The classroom that collected the most box tops all year will receive a free pizza party as the prize!


We are searching for a volunteer to help organize the Box Tops campaign for the 2017-18 school year. This person will be fully trained and supported by the volunteer who led the campaign this year. Please contact president@HPSPTO.com if you are interested.

Restaurant  Night Roundup

Every school year the PTO fills the calendar with a variety of “Restaurant Nights” to build community and raise funds for the school. Before our feet hit the street seeking restaurants to participate, we thought we’d offer up the opportunity to any of our Hyde Park School parents first. We are fortunate enough to have many HPS parents who own/manage restaurants, many of which have participated in these events in the past.

We’ll begin assembling the calendar for the 2017-18 school year soon, so please reach out if you are interested in hosting a Restaurant Night. Please contact Beth McPeek ( beth1abell@aol.com) for details.
Oakley After Hours Event

1 more volunteer needed!! We can do this- anyone out there who can fill this final slot?

We Can't Do It Without You!

The Hyde Park School Athletics Department needs a volunteer to fill the open Basketball Coordinator position for the 2017-18 school year. You will be trained on how to accomplish the responsibilities of the role and will have full support from the Athletic Director.

 This position is perfect for a parent who wants to get involved but isn’t keen on being a coach. It’s work that can be done from a desk or in the evenings when schedules allow. Our basketball program already has pre-stablished systems in place, all we need is you!!

We encourage you to join in this exciting part of the HPS community.  Our current basketball program is successful and with your fresh ideas and enthusiasm we can make it even better!  Contact Will Menz at HPS.Athletics@mail.com.
