Last week, 103 Hardy fourth- and fifth-grade students voted for their favorite 2014 Massachusetts Children's Book Award selection. Hardy results were tallied and sent to Salem State College, where votes from all over Massachusetts are counted. We will know the statewide winner in a few weeks. Hardy School's top choice was Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper, with a total of 26 votes.

Valentine Books Arrive at Hardy Library
Thank you to all of the Hardy families who donated a book to the Hardy Library in honor of their special valentine through the PTO's Another Chapter Book Donation Program. Hardy Library received over 40 new, beautiful hardcover books! The children have enjoyed seeing their names on the valentine bookplates and hearing their special books read aloud. Thank you again for supporting our library! http://ihearthardylibrary.weebly.com/whats-happening.html
