Welcome to Hyde-Addison Elementary School @ Meyer!

I am truly honored to serve as the new principal of Hyde-Addison Elementary School. Hyde- Addison exemplifies the prowess of a diverse, inclusive school community, dedicated to educating the whole child. We are devoted to our students meeting high expectations academically and social-emotionally. We value curiosity, diversity, integrity, kindness and perseverance, which are integrated into every aspect of our school experience. These tenets align to our vision of empowering children to lead meaningful and purposeful lives.

The opportunity to lead such a remarkable school is humbling. I embrace my responsibility for student success and recognize how precious the gift of education can be to the lives of our scholars. As a team, we have the power to truly transform how students experience school. All students should feel valued, nurtured and equipped with the skills necessary to become productive global citizens. Together, we can make that notion a reality.

As part of my commitment to collaboration and communication, updates will be available on the Hyde-Addison website,  school newsletters, my personal Twitter account, @DrCalvinRHooks, or the Hyde-Addison Twitter account, @HydeAddisonES.

I am enthusiastic about an amazing 2018-2019 school year and look forward to seeing you soon!

Kindest Regards,

Calvin R. Hooks
