PTO President Post – Vol. 8 / Issue 07  

            <div class="paragraph" style="text-align:left;">

Hello everyone!
Please try and join us for the PTO meeting tonight. Kate Leary and Ginna Reeder from the Hardy School committee on the challenges of overcrowding will be presenting some of the information that this committee has gathered by attending all sorts of meetings. Also, Bill Hayner from the school committee will have a short presentation on how the school committee does the budget.

Also, the Beach Party has been rescheduled for the 1st day of April and it’s no April Fool’s. Unfortunately, some organization had already reserved the gym for the whole month of February…

Check out the note by Jen Lewis-Forbes about AEF. It would be fun to have a group of trivia savvy parents from the Hardy school form a team to represent our school.

Lastly, do not forget to sign up for the Cause + Event race either as a volunteer or to run to benefit Hardy School.
