Week of January 8


The PTA will be holding a General Meeting and Parent Social on Thursday, January 11 at 6pm at Hyde.  We would love to see all of you there to share all of the exciting and fun events we have planned for the coming year such as the Winter Movie Night, Spring Fest, Spring Gala and Auction, Talent Show, International Night and more!  Our events are successful when all families get involved and attend.  Come join us for a short meeting and a chance to mingle with fellow Hyde Families to start the year off strong!  Dinner will be provided for adults (not pizza) and childcare & pizza will be provided for kids. We look forward to seeing you in 2018!

Clothing Donations

Now that the weather is colder, we welcome donations of hats and gloves for students to stay warm at recess. We are also looking for clothing donations in all sizes including pants, shirts, and unused socks & underwear for our emergency office supply. If you are able to give any items, please drop them off in the main office. Thanks for your support!

Save the Date!

Our annual PTA auction will take place March 3rd, so mark your calendars and be on the lookout for ticket sales in the new year.

Auction Co-Chair Needed

The Spring Auction and Gala on March 3, 2018 is one of Hyde-Addison’s most wonderful events of the year.  As you can imagine, the PTA needs your help in making this event a success.  We are looking for one or two parent/guardian volunteers to Co-Chair the event with the Fundraising VP.  The responsibilities will range from soliciting donations, managing day-of activities, and working with volunteers on logistics, donations and event activities.  Please contact Bhavna Lee at bhavna.lee@gmail.com or 410-294-6855 to discuss the co-chair position. It is a lot of fun and we look forward to getting some great volunteers involved to make this night a success!
