Welcome to Hyde-Addison Elementary School!

We are excited to continue building a school community where students feel valued, nurtured and equipped with the skills necessary to become global citizens. 

Last school year was a monumental testament of how dedicated staff members, engaged families and supportive community stakeholders could collaborate to provide the time and resources necessary to ensure our students thrive.  We appreciate a school community which believes in not only identifying the gaps, but partners willing to personally fill those gaps.  We hope to continue that type of community engagement as Hyde-Addison returns to Georgetown.   

We stand firmly by our core values of curiosity, diversity, integrity, kindness and perseverance, which are aligned to our vision of empowering children to lead meaningful and purposeful lives. In addition, we fully understand and appreciate our responsibility in embracing diversity, promoting equity and educating the whole child.

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.  In addition, I personally invite each of you to share your aspirations for Hyde-Addison Elementary School and how you believe you can best partner with the school team to achieve those goals.  If you would like to share your thoughts or schedule a personal meeting, please feel free to email me directly at calvin.hooks@k12.dc.gov.

I am enthusiastic about an amazing 2019-2020 school year and look forward to seeing you soon!

Kindest Regards,

Calvin R. Hooks
