  • A Message from the Principal 

    SPRING BREAK is right around the corner!!! Although hard at work, we are all looking forward to the break. Due to having to make up missed days, there has not been a holiday break since January for staff members. Our students have been busy at work on various testing and other assessments, to include benchmark writing in preparation for State testing that will take place in May after we return.

    Report cards will be sent home next Thursday and the 3rd 9 weeks of the school year ends today. I hope you will take this opportunity to talk with your child about expectations for the remainder of the school year. We are in the home stretch, as the 4th nine weeks began on Monday. Our awards assembly for the 3rd nine weeks will be held when we return on Thursday, April 12th; 8:30 for 1st-2nd grades and 9:00 for 3rd-5th grades.

    As the weather warms, parents we are asking that students not wear flip flops to school. This creates a major safety issue and we want all of our boys and girls here at Hyatt Park to be safe each day. When a student has to go to the health room because of a flip flop that has popped to wait on a parent, this takes away from valuable instructional time. We want to take advantage of every teachable moment we have left in the year.

    Spring pictures will be taken on Wednesday, April 11th. Our photography company has assured us a quick turnaround of 10-12 days so they should be back in plenty of time before school ends. Spring pictures will include individual pictures, as well as class pictures. Individual packages will be sold separately. We are also wrapping up our yearbook sales at present. We only ordered a limited amount, so be sure to get yours now if you have not already sent in money for them. The cost for yearbooks remains at $20.

    We are asking that you pay close attention to our calendar of events. There is so much still to be accomplished in the short time we have left. Parents we need your assistance with a couple of items:

    • PTO Is planning for our Spring Carnival, May 5th, WE NEED VOLUNTEERS
    • Please do not ask to conference with a teacher during the limited amount of teaching time we have left. We will be glad to schedule a conference during the teacher’s planning period or after school.
    • Tardiness continues to be a concern – please make sure your child is at school by 7:30am each day. If they are eating breakfast, they should be here by 7:25 at the latest.

    We hope that you all have a safe and memorable spring break and Easter holiday season. We will not be sending a newsletter home next week. Reminder that Thursday is a half day, with parent conferences in the afternoon. Friday is also a half day with dismissal at 12 noon on both days.

    Please come in to volunteer whenever you can, we’d love to have you. You are always welcome!

    We are Hyatt Park and our “Mission is Possible!”
