Thank you to all the families who were able to make it to the Wooodstock and Bath Fall Family Weekends! We enjoyed having you participate in class rotations, cheering on the students at their athletic competitions, and taking part in the Family Education component that makes Hyde so unique.
A special thank you to Qunhua Nong, (mother of Bill Ge), who spoke to the whole community about her experience as a young female athlete in the competitive environment of Olympic-level badminton. Nong is an Olympic silver medalist in badminton who surpassed her own hopes and vision for her success and dealt with much adversity as she rose to the highest level of the sport in the world. She told the assembly that the challenge continued when she became a parent. Bath faculty member Fan Luo said of the talk, “I was excited because for the first time we had a Chinese parent speak at community meeting. I used to watch her on TV and now I get to introduce her in a foreign country.”
