A Message from the Principal
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! Our theme this year isBreaking through Barriers with Unity and Excellence. This year we are uniting in a TRIBES Community which is focused on creating a dynamic and caring learning environment for all focused on an understanding of Human Development and Growth, A Caring Culture, A Community of Learners and Responsive Education.
TRIBES is not a program, but a “process-oriented approach that encompasses a myriad of factors that assure children’s whole development, authentic learning, well-being, and life success” (Gibbs, Preface toWhat is It About Tribes?, 4). Our hope this year is to connect with our community in meaningful ways and implement a supportive, creative, and caring learning environment in order to have a tremendous year of growth for our students. Join us as we begin to trust the process—it will transform Hyatt Park Elementary into a dynamic learning environment for all!
We encourage our parents and community members to get involved. We know that when parents are involved in their children's education, the quality of the school improves and children do better in school. We are seeking parent representative to reestablish our Parent/Teacher Organization in support of our students and dedicated teachers and to serve on our School Improvement Council. The commitment is only one meeting per month for either team. Your input is invaluable to the success of our school. Remember, everyone has something to contribute!
All of us at Hyatt Park are committed to bringing out the best in our students by setting high expectations for citizenship and academics with our Cougar ROAR: Respect, Obedience, Achievement, and Responsibility. Again, let’s have a great year!
