PTO President Post – Vol. 9 / Issue 1

            <div class="paragraph">

Hello everyone!

Welcome or welcome back to Hardy School. I hope that everyone had a wonderful and restful summer and is ready for another school year. Over the summer the PTO did meet and we have many events planned for this year starting with one this week, our fabulous ice cream social. Come eat some ice cream scooped by a Fifth grade buddy or a teacher. $2 buys you a bottomless cup. Ice cream is provided at cost from our local Chilly Cow.

I also would like to invite any interested parent to the PTO meeting on Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m. At every meeting, our principal gives us an update as to what is happening in the school. We also discuss upcoming events. The meeting promptly ends by 8 p.m.

For the PTO board, we are looking for another 2nd grade VP as well as a corresponding secretary. On our PTO tab found at the Hardy website, there is also a list of ongoing volunteering jobs. Please let a board member know if you can help us out.

I wanted to thank Stephanie Hodge for stepping up as our interim treasurer, and thank Lee Powers and Amy Reese, our former treasurers, for all they did. Lee and Amy bought a house in the Brackett district over the summer. Also, thank you to Bonnie Walsh, Terry Holt and their children for delivering and cleaning up the teacher luncheon.

Finally, thank you to all who provided baked goods, fruit and help setting up and cleaning up the welcome back to school breakfast. It was also lovely to meet all the new parents. Please note below the link to the directory for entering your family’s information for any new Hardy student.

Looking forward to seeing you all either at the PTO meeting or at the ice cream social,

Cedrine Bell, PTO President
