Hyde Park Elementary and Middle School students had an outstanding weekend at the PSIA (Private Schools Interscholastic Association) competition this weekend in Austin! The PSIA competition includes a wide spectrum of advanced curricula events in mathematics, science, social studies, reading, speaking, music, art and more! Hyde Park students competed with students from seven private schools from the Austin/San Antonio region. Forty Hyde Park Elementary students (1st through 5th grade) participated in fifty-three events. With outstanding results, twenty HP Elementary students placed in 1st through 6th place in twenty-two events.

Congratulations to all of our PSIA participants! Hyde Park has four students who qualified (by placing in 1st or 2nd place in district) to attend the State Competition at TCU in Fort Worth on April 30th. The students entering the state level competition include Abbie Seale (First Place: Ready Writing 3rd Grade), Connor Ellinor (Second Place: Spelling 2nd Grade), Isaiah Clayborn (First Place: Spelling 4th Grade), and Casey Otken (First Place: Spelling 5th Grade).
