Hyde Park Teachers Pitch In for a Cleaner Hyde Park

Roadside litter can cost untold dollars annually to control. Often, it is impossible to keep up with the trash that thoughtless people have dumped on us. Several years ago, the HPTA adopted St. Andrews Road in Hyde Park. We have received many compliments from the community on behalf of this effort. We need your help! When it is your school's month to clean - join your colleagues in this light physical activity that (believe it or not) is actually a little fun. If you have never tried it - consider getting some friends together and volunteer this year!

Some of the benefits for the HPTA include:

•Gain recognition from thousands of community members driving by our sign every day.
•Benefit from a favorable image in the local community.
•Leave an everlasting, positive impression on the environment and the community.


Several students from Mr. Daniels' Class were among those that donated coats for this year's Coat Drive.

HPTA Coat Drive Underway

The annual HPTA Coat Drive, in conjunction with Guardian Storage who collects for Dutchess Outreach, is a worthwhile cause. Please consider sending in any outgrown coats to your school's collection box. Together we can help keep others warm this winter!
