May 20: Field Day #bestdayever
May 22: 6th Grade Moving on Ceremony
May 23: Last day of School
June-July: SUMMER!!
Monday, May 20, 2024 ☀
First Shift: 7:25-11:30 & Second Shift: 9:15-2:00

Field Day = Fun Day for HPS Students!!!! It is a day that every student looks forward to and you have the opportunity to be a part of it. To pull this event off it requires a massive amount of volunteers. Trust us, we can't have too many and there's a job for everyone. Grades K-2 will be outside from 7:50-12:20, and Grades 3-6 will join 9:50-2:00.

For those of you who have never volunteered for a Field Day in the past, you have to see what you are missing. The kids spend their morning/afternoon playing outside games, eating pizza, dunking their principal and so much more. So sign up for a shift and get to see your student(s) at their Hyde Park happiest!

Calling all 5th-grade parents (or younger):
The 6th Grade Moving On Ceremony is May 22nd, and we need Volunteers to help so that our 6th grade families can enjoy this special time with their families!

On Wednesday, May 22nd our 6th grades will be celebrating with their Moving On Ceremony and we are in need of volunteers to help out at Withrow:
We need:
  • 2 volunteers to help us get the pavilion behind the school secured and hang out there with the coolers and tables (5:30 to 7pm)
  • 2 volunteers to pick up cupcakes and ice for the ceremony and then help us hand out drinks, cupcakes etc at the gathering after the ceremony (6pm to 8pm)

Contact Kristin Hunter at grafkl@gmail.com or 704-301-0630 if you are available.
