HPS on the Cusp of Reaching School-Wide Fundraising Goal: Online Pledge Page, Open ALL WEEK!
Thank you to all who have participated in the 2020-21 Read-a-Thon! Even though we have passed the cut-off date to log minutes read, there is still time to turn them in! The Google form is still available until Tuesday Nov 17th. Also on the 17th, Group A will have the opportunity to drop off paper logs in person in front of the school at morning drop off due to last week's holiday. For last minute pledges, the online pledge page, https://app.99pledges.com/fund/hydeparkschool/, will also be open this entire week.

HPS is less than $1000 away from reaching our school-wide goal of $18,000! Let's finish strong and see if we can reach our goal by Friday November 20!

Once again, Thank you! Thank you for all of your support and encouragement of the Read-A-Thon during this strange time. We are excited to announce this year's winners on Friday, November 20th, so stay tuned! And as always, we hope you all KEEP READING!!!

Future Enrollment Survey
We are collecting data for future Kindergarten enrollment at Hyde Park School. Please fill out this Google form if you are planning to send your child/children to HPS in the coming years.

Join the Hyde Park Athletics Boosters and get your very own, highly-coveted, blue foam finger! Then, there's more! With foam finger in hand, remove the foam finger from your hand every Friday and place it in a window of your house for Foam Finger Friday. Every Friday, neighborhood drive-throughs will take place noting addresses where Hyde Park Athletic Foam Fingers have been spotted. All those addresses will be eligible for a weekly prize drawing.

By becoming a Booster Club member, you are directly contributing to the support and growth of the HPS athletic programs. Hyde Park Athletics are privately funded, and your annual membership will be used to reduce the overall registration cost of these programs, fund new programs not currently available, and ensure that our student athletes have the appropriate equipment and facilities to compete effectively.
