A busy time of the year here at New Hyde Park Memorial!
As we approach the last few days before the Holiday Recess, I am sure the students and staff will tell you that it is a busy time of the year here at New Hyde Park Memorial. A lot has been happening in the past few weeks and we are proud to highlight some of these events below. As you can see from the many photos and write-ups, the students have been not only winning awards for their outstanding academic and athletic accomplishments, but they also spend a lot of time giving back to the community. I could not be more proud to be their Principal!
The holiday season is a wonderful time to stop and thank others for the impact that they have on our lives. I would like to use this opportunity to thank students, parents, and staff for the dedication, support, and commitment in making New Hyde Park Memorial High School a school of excellence and a New York State Reward School.
I am very thankful that I work with such a dedicated staff, students that work hard and exhibit wonderful character, and supportive parents who encourage their child’s success.
On behalf of the entire New Hyde Park Memorial staff, we wish each family a wonderful holiday season and all the best in 2016.
Have an enjoyable week!
