From the Principal
The third annual Grandparents’ (Elders) dinner was a huge success. We had over 150 guests who enjoyed a
traditional Thanksgiving meal with the students of Hyde Park Elementary. This tradition gives grandparents and elders
in the community a chance to visit the school and enjoy the students in the
school setting. Every year this event
has grown more popular. The lunch is
offered free of charge and guests are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food
item which was donated to the Lamoille County Food Shelf. This year we had a considerable amount to
donate, which will assist in supporting local families over the holidays. A special thanks goes out to the food service
personnel from Lamoille Union High School for helping purchase, prep and serve:
Dylan LaFlam, Joyce Cleveland, and Donna
Ferland. Also, we could not have done
this without the help of Shirley Mason, our head cook and many, many, HPES
staff who volunteered their time and energy. And thank you to Ernie Machia and Hannaford
Supermarket for donating food toward our lunch!
The event was enjoyed by everyone involved, and we look forward to doing
this again next year.

From the Nurse
The holidays are a fun time but also
a time we traditionally have a lot of food choices in front of us. There are many experts who have great tips
for enjoying this season without overeating.
Here are some tips that can work for kids and adults from registered
dietician Monica Holt, MS of Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in Stanford.
- Eat a healthy meal prior
to a party so you are likely to avoid overindulging. Kids often do well with a healthy snack
before parties or outings to counteract the effect of unfamiliar meal
times and food choices.
- Put the candy bowl and
sweets out of sight rather than keeping them on the counter. Instead try a bowl of fruit.
- Keep your portion sizes
small, and try to eat mostly healthy items.
- Don’t deny yourself or
your children sweets, just include them in moderation.
- Encourage your child to
participate in choosing food for his or her plate, using the guidelines
- Don’t slack off on your
exercise program during the holidays, and take the kids with you whenever
