Hyde School has a long tradition of working with the Salvation Army to host a Christmas party, dating back to 1994. On Saturday, December 9th, families were treated to an evening of holiday cheer in the Mansion that included story time in the Living Room, cookies and hot cocoa under the chandelier, and a special visit from Hyde’s very own Santa Clause. When this Santa isn’t busy at the North Pole, he is in the dean's office or teaching chemistry! Student elves volunteered by wrapping gifts, baking cookies, and being hosts on the night of the event.
The Salvation Army Christmas Party is a time when students, staff, and faculty come together to give back to the community. This beloved tradition of Hyde School is one we look forward to each holiday season, and brings us so much joy to be able to create lasting memories for Maine families. On behalf of the Hyde School, we want to wish everyone a wonderful holiday, and a happy and safe New Year!
