From the Principal

Grand Opening

What an amazing Grand Opening!  It was a wonderful opportunity to say “Goodbye” to construction with our ribbon cutting.  We had a beautiful ceremony that was topped off by a real Hawk circling high over the parking lot as if blessing us with its approval.  The Hyde Park Hawks are finally and officially home!

 Open House

Home Day Open House will be this Saturday, September 15th, from 12:00-3:00.  The building will be open for self-guided tours.  This is a great time for friends and families to get a look at the newly renovated building.

Save the Date: October 4th Community Dinner

A Harvest Community Dinner featuring Pot Roast, Vegetables from the LNSU Robtoy Farm, and other local fruits and vegetables will be held at HPES on October 4th at 5:30 PM.  This event is for Hyde Park Community as well as folks from the other communities in our Lamoille North School District.  Please spread the word.  This is a “by donation” event and proceeds will benefit the Lamoille North Farm to School Program which provides local foods to our schools as well as promotes educational opportunities for students around local food production and appreciation.
