Back In Action
As the students traveled back to campus from the Thanksgiving break, the faculty spent the day working on themselves in both professional workshops and personal seminars. At Hyde, we do not ask the students to do anything that we do not do. In order to grow, we must continue to reflect on where we are and our vision forward. In that spirit, the faculty did many of the exercises that parents participate in during their Family Learning Center, FLC. Director of Family Education, Katherine Mondanero writes:
"We split into groups of five and each took a turn in the “hot seat.” The “hot seat” is an opportunity to receive feedback from others on strengths they see in us and challenges they either see us struggle with or want to offer us. While it can be uncomfortable to have all eyes on you and hear what others think of you, we are lucky to work in an environment that fosters safe and constructive feedback. Sometimes the things we hear are not surprising, and at other times, it can be enlightening to see yourself from someone else’s perspective.
After we received our feedback from the group, we each responded to our feedback and journaled on the following questions:

Boys Varsity Soccer takes home the NEPSAC Class D championship!
By Stefan Jensen, Athletic Director
Boys Varsity Soccer ended with a New England Championship after a 17-1-1 season! It was an amazing run. The team earned the #1 seed entering the New England Tournament after winning the conference championship for the first time since 2014. Hyde hosted the first two games of the New England Tournament at home. During the first round, Hyde played tough in the pouring rain, winning 3-0. The team then hosted Covenant Christian at home in the semifinals. Trailing 2-1 late in the match, Jason Wolf '24 scored a goal to tie it which ultimately led to PK’s where we ended up prevailing! After the win against Covenant Christian, Hyde advanced to play Macduffie School in the New England Finals. It was stiff competition but Hyde persevered, winning 2 - 1 in double overtime! To win the game Henry Pennell '24 kicked a beautiful cross from the corner to Lucas Uzquiano '24. who headed the ball into the goal for the win. The Boys Varsity Soccer team has won four New England Championships and finished runner up once in the past nine years. It was an amazing run, and we look forward to next year!
