Tree Dedication :: DedicaciĆ³n del arbol













Dear Hornet Families,


Last year we lost one of our own. Alex Chavez was a great student, joyful friend, enthusiastic athlete, kind brother and an amazing person. We are dedicating one of our beautiful trees in his honor. The tree is in the middle quad of the school and there is now a plaque with his name on it. We invite you all to visit Alex’s tree and send him your positive thoughts. We will be having a dedication ceremony in June that will coincide with the Alex Chavez Cup, the soccer game played between the 5th graders and Hyde Staff. Hope to see you there.

Principal, H. A. Hyde Elementary


Estimadas familias de Hyde,

El año pasado falleció uno de nuestros estudiantes. Alex Chavez era un gran estudiante, un amigo lleno de alegría, un atleta entusiasmado, un hermano mayor muy bueno y una persona maravillosa. Estamos dedicándole uno de nuestros árboles de la escuela en su honor. El árbol está en el patio en medio de la oficina y la biblioteca. Tenemos una placa junto al árbol con su nombre. Los invitamos a visitar al árbol de Alex y le pueden mandar pensamientos positivos. Tendremos una celebración de su dedicación en junio cuando juguemos fútbol por La Copa de Alex. Este juego se juega con los estudiantes de 5to en contra del personal de la escuela. Nos vemos.

A Trip to Wilder Ranch

              Ms. Islas' and Ms. Rigler’s 3rd grade students recently had the opportunity to visit and participate in Wilder Ranch State Park’s Ranch Day to experience what life was like on the ranch 100 years ago. The teachers were given a grant to help pay for the transportation and State Park Ranch Day activities. Students were offered traditional dress, and invited to participate in four activities: cooking (including making butter and corn bread muffins), laundry, blacksmithing and the horse ride.  Volunteers at the park and parent chaperones all helped to make this day one of the best to learn local history of the Santa Cruz area.  Wilder Ranch State Park was one of the main dairy ranches on the Central Coast, and provided milk to residents in Santa Cruz and the surrounding areas.
