Welcome to Hardy Elementary School
As members of the Hardy community we know and appreciate just how special our school is. From Principal Cook to all of the amazing educators and school staff, we are privileged to leave our kids in their capable and nurturing hands. Reciprocally, as the extended community, it is our duty on the PTO to complement and supplement the in-school experience with support and service. Through fundraising, volunteerism, and community-building activities we are invaluable contributors to the Hardy Experience. As such, we hope that you will find opportunities to contribute to this mission through both PTO activities and giving. And we hope that this web-site proves useful as both a parent resource and a vehicle to stay involved in the Hardy PTO community. Thank you for your engagement and support.

PTO Board Positions for the 2020-21 School Year
Feel like you could be a harbinger of positive change for your child? Have strong opinions you wish to express? Want to spend a little time engaging in thoughtful conversation with other Hardy parents? Hoping to meet new people in the Hardy community? Feel strongly about Hardy and want to continue to make it a wonderful place for your child and their friends? Want to get more face time with the incoming Principal? Looking for ways to give back to your community?
If any of the above apply to you, then consider joining the Hardy PTO for the 2020/21 school year. Many of the current PTO Board members have been gladly doing this work for several years, but will finally be moving on come June. It is time for others to pick up the gauntlet! We cannot stress enough how crucial it is for our children, teachers and families that we continue to have a full, thriving PTO.
You can find a list of Board positions by viewing this document. If any of these roles interests you, don't hesitate to reach out to Sabreena Kropp or Adam Meyers at email@example.com or any other current member of the '19/20 PTO. We'll be happy to chat with you and answer any questions you may have.
