Hyde Park Shares the Holiday Spirit
Thursday, December 10 at 6:00 pm, the school counselor, Tina Rich, organized the Third Annual Portrait Night. Three years ago Natalie Hodina, organized the first Portrait Night as an intern at Hyde Park, and now it has become a tradition at the school. Families are invited to the school for a night of spending quality time together. There is popcorn, hot chocolate, music, games, and clothes for the entire family and family photos are taken. Everything is free and the framed photos are sent home before the December break. Portrait Night was a success with 283 in attendance! Faculty and staff volunteer to make this event an success.
One of the teachers who volunteered in the clothing area shared that a mother was very touched by the generosity and kindness. She was there with her children, and when she was informed the clothing was for her as well she began to tear up. The mother said, "There is something for me too? My children always come first and I am last."
Thank you Tina, Natalie, and the staff at Hyde Park for impacting families in a meaningful way. Today I will...
DA Performance - Noodle Doodle Box
Share this information with the teachers at your school who may be interested in a fun inexpensive theater performance by a talented trio at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts.
Here is a brief summary of the 45 minute production, the main characters, Pepper and Zacharias, are two clowns. They each possess a box – a private space which they refuse to share with the other. Their boxes are unique in their own special way. An overbearing Drum Major appears and decides he likes both boxes. He pits Pepper and Zacharias against each other so that he can steal their boxes – until a magical new box appears which they learn to share and enjoy together.
And, here is a link to the flyer.
