Tune in to the School Committee
Meeting Tuesday Night (3/31)
Dear Hardy community,
There will be a School Committee meeting tomorrow evening at 6:30pm on public television and YouTube. Two important topics will be on the agenda - an update on remote learning plans and the latest on the HHU project.
We are aware of the questions and concerns that have arisen about remote learning during this unprecedented time and the SC meeting is your opportunity to not only understand the district’s plans but also to comment. Please read the agenda below (or click here) for information to find out how you can actively participate in the meeting.
Your Hardy PTO
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.
Support Hardy's Anna Garcia-Miller & Sam Steere in the Boston Marathon
2020 is off to the races for two members of our Hardy community! Anna Garcia-Miller and Sam Steere are running the 2020 Boston Marathon to raise money for Wellesley’s A Better Chance (ABC) Program, which has been active in Wellesley for over 45 years, providing academically talented young women of color from underserved communities “a better chance” through enrollment at Wellesley High School. Show your Hardy spirit by contributing to Anna Garcia-Miller's and Sam Steere's fundraising campaigns. Giving early allows them to unlock the generosity of an anonymous donor who has committed to matching what each of them raises up to $5,000!
Your contributions will support the remarkable young women of the ABC program as well as show the strength and pride of our Hardy community. Then mark your calendars for April 20, 2020 and come on down to Central Street to line the race course and make some noise! Thank you so much from both Anna and Sam for your support!
Monthly Wellesley PAC Coffee

The schedule for the remainder of the school year is:
Thursday, April 2
Thursday, May 7
Thursday, June 4
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the PAC. We hope to see you at an upcoming coffee!
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.
