Volume 5, Issue 2
Welcome and Welcome Back to Hardy School!
Can you believe we have made it through week one of school already! I hope everyone's summer was full of wonderful adventures and great family memories. Our upcoming school year is sure to be a memorable one as well. The PTO has set the calendar of events for the year and we are looking forward to having many new faces join us in enriching the lives of our wonderful Hardy community thorough community building events like the Ice Cream Social and the Hardy Hoe Down! These events take a lot of time and effort to put together so please look for emails and paper flyers asking for just a 1/2 hour of your time.
There have been many changes put into motion for this new school year, including a new principal, many new faculty members, a new music teacher and a new nurse. Our PTO structure has also changed to invite more families to become a part of their children's experiences here at the Hardy School. We now have 6 Vice Presidents, one for each grade level that will work closely with Room Parents and Teachers to sponsor one major event each year. We are hoping that this new structure will offer families the opportunity to take part in activities with their children and other families in the same grades so that more meaningful and lasting relationships may form within the grade levels. If you are interested in becoming a room parent, please speak to your child's teacher and more information will be available during Back To School Night on September 25.
Our website is currently under construction, but all info about upcoming events will be posted monthly in the outdoor glass bulletin board located on the playground by 2nd and 3rd grade entrance by the gym.
It has been wonderful to reconnect with old friends and meet so many wonderful new members of our Hardy community and I'm looking forward to meeting many more!
Enjoy your first weekend!
Jenn Irvine, PTO President
