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.
