From Principal

There is a letter in your student’s Friday Folder regarding an "Internal Field Review" with the Agency of Education.  Every school in the state has a review every three years that involves a visit from staff from other schools in the state and AOE officials under their guidance and direction.

HPES has participated in this event in the past and it was a rewarding process where we got to share what is happening in our school community.  The review will take place on October 10th.  More information will be available in the next few weeks.

Meet Our Personalized Learning Specialist

Callie Hastings:  I am very excited to be a part of the Hyde Park community this year!  Before I moved to Vermont, I taught at the Breakwater School in Maine and before that, I was a PreK-8th Grade Art Teacher in the Boston area.  With each move, I’ve been able to get a little more time in nature and still get to be inspired by children’s creativity and curiosity every day!  I love any chance to make and create things, and have loved painting ever since I could grip a brush.

Hannafords Helps Schools

Please see the Hannafords Helps Schools flier in your student’s Friday folder.  Help by depositing your School Dollars in HPES on the collection tower at Hannafords!  Excellent chances for bonuses and earnings this year and the money goes toward our Sports For Life program.  Thanks in advance!
