We are proud to be celebrating our 8th year of Read on Hyer!  This beloved fundraiser, created by the Hyer PTA, has two primary goals: to foster a love of reading in our children, and to raise critical funds to support Hyer and the amazing programs paid for by the PTA.  Please join us in supporting Read on HYER and let reading transport you to a blockbuster hit!
