Friends of Hyannis West was created to celebrate the community partnerships at Hyannis West Elementary School. Many 'Friends' ... local businesses, organizations and individuals, provide financial resources and serve as volunteers and advocates for our school. We believe that strong, positive community partnerships enrich every student's educational experience and provide an opportunity for citizens' who share our passion for the vision of Hyannis West.
“According to Principal Kathi Amato, thousands of students have benefited from the support of these community organizations and businesses that stepped up to help. Such community engagement sends a strong message to students that they are important and valued. This can mean breaking the cycle of poverty that continues generation after generation. When students see new possibilities for their lives, the impossible can become the possible.”
