“Souper Bowl” Food Drive
Our food drive has kicked off to a great start. So far, our pantry is overflowing with items for the Hyde Park Food Bank! We will continue to collect food items until Friday, February 9, 2018. Once Again, thank you for all of your support in this great cause.
Lost and Found
Our Lost and Found is piling up. Please have your child check if they are missing any winter clothing.
Please write notes to your classroom teacher if there are any changes in your child’s transportation plan. Last minute calls to the school can cause confusion and mistakes can be made. Please also inform us if someone other than the people on the list will be picking up your student.
There will be no school during the week of February 19th. All students will return on Monday, February 26th.
On Saturday, February 10, 2018, the Parent Council will be hosting a Craft Fair at the Ohrenberger Cafeteria from 9:30 am-12:30 pm.

If you are interested in volunteering for the day, please contact the main office. This is not a parent drop off event.
To celebrate the opening of the Winter Olympics, students can wear the colors of any country on Friday, February 9th.
