Hyde Weekly: 11/14 – 11/20

Bath Highlights:

  • MAISAD Champions!: The Girl’s Varisty Soccer team beat Hebron Academy 1-0 to capture the league championship. Mid-fielders Olivia Chance ’10, Sage Harris ’11, and Brittney Harris ’10 worked hard to control the ball and were critical to offense all game. Mid-way through the half, Hannah MacMillan ’10 scored the first and only goal of the game on a great volley from the top of the box. For the rest of the game, backs Scout Gauld ’10, Katy Duchesneau ’10, Shannon Vize ’10 and sweeper Alyssa Thomas ’11 did an outstanding job dismantling Hebron’s attempts to score. Other outstanding players for the game were Cece Jackson ’10, and Zoe Dorian ’10 on the offense half of the pitch and Tierra Williams ’10, in goal. (Below is a list of all of the athletic award recipients for the fall season)
  • Civic Duty: The senior government classes recently completed an assignment in which each student had to complete at least four acts of civic duty. The idea was for the student to be “active citizens” for the betterment of their community. Some examples of civic duties performed were:
    • Volunteering in a special education classroom
    • Soup kitchen
    • Giving blood
    • Starting a recycling project in conjunction with Lowes Hardware
    • Registering for the draft
    • Picking up trash/recycling in Bath
    • Making a movie advertising Hyde
    • Volunteer work at a nursing home
    • Writing a letter to the President
  • Academic Recognition: With the fall term coming to a close, we took time to honor the hard work and academic achievement of our students. Two students were honored for each discipline, one being a MIL (Most Improved Learner) and the other a MVL (Most Valuable Learner- a combination of outstanding effort, achievement, and collaboration).

Woodstock Highlights:

  • Dawes Dazzles! – This week, veteran Hyde faculty member Mike Dawes was a guest lecturer in the 20th Century History classes and did a presentation on the Stock Market. Faculty member Donna Dubinsky explained, “We were beginning to cover the Great Depression and the students wanted to know more about the reasons for the Stock Market Crash of 1929.” Mike discussed the theory of laissez-faire and bank regulations. He also talked about the latest economy slump and reviewed the different responses from government and the private sector. Adam Carreau ’11 summed up the thoughts of many in the group by saying, “I always wanted to know what led to the crash and Mr. Dawes explained it so that I could understand it.”
  • JV Football Magic – Hyde Wolf Pack faced off against Pomfret’s JV Football team last Wednesday and went into the game with a 0-5 record. The contest was phenomenal. Coach Jenkins said, “It seemed like something magical had happened on the field, and that a feeling of brotherhood and synergy overcame all the selfish and quitter attitudes. It was a truly selfless game.” After the game, Michael Cannon ’11 was in the locker room and said, “I feel as though we came out of an undefeated season.” Although the season record was 1-5, the team faced several tough opponents and tough attitudes throughout the season and never once did they throw their hands up in defeat. Coach Jenkins added, “We always came off the field with our heads high, awaiting the next challenge with positivity and optimism. This to me is an “undefeated” season, one in which the chips tend to be down but you always play the next hand as if it is the winning one. I was extremely proud of the team this fall and look forward to coaching them again in the coming year…. attitudes and all!”
  • Sports Wrap-up – Thursday night, the school donned our fanciest dress, had a wonderful holiday meal prepared by Michael Stone and this staff and then headed to the theater to celebrate the lessons learned through success and failure during our fall sports season. Our athletic director, Sean Saucier told the school, “I believe we’ve accomplished a great deal through the journey to understand the value of hard work and the relationships that form as a result of high expectations. A special congratulation goes to our women’s cross-country team for their SENE championship; your teamwork and camaraderie made us all proud. The following athletes were honored:
