Third graders participated in a Firetalking Writing Project inspired by author Patrica Polacco's books which are based on her grandmother's storytelling around a fire. The third graders wrote their own family stories and then shared their stories during a special "Firetalking" morning. Click here to see a slideshow.

The HPCSD Athletics Department and FDR Track Team are again sponsoring the Presidents' Running Club.
The goal of the Presidents' Running Club is to improve the general fitness of the Hyde Park Central School District Community by encouraging 4th, 5th, and 6th graders to be more active runners and walkers.
The Running Club will meet on a weekly basis after school at FDR High School beginning in the Spring. We will track our miles and work to achieve goals. Club members can earn rewards for reaching their mileage goals!
The Running Club will begin in late March/early April.
