PTO President Post – Vol. 8 / Issue 12

            <div class="paragraph" style="text-align:left;">Hello everyone!<br /><br />As the <a href="http://www.hardyschool.com/hardy-family-barbeque.html" target="_blank">Hardy BBQ</a> is just around the corner, this Friday, June 17th, I would like to remind you to have your  <a href="http://www.hardyschool.com//uploads/2/1/9/0/21908944/2016-hardy-bbq_tickets.pdf" target="_blank">BBQ order forms</a> in as soon as possible. The food order needs to be in to Costco on Tuesday evening. At least send me a digital one by tomorrow night if you can. We will have some extra food, but not in huge excess. If you are a Hardy benefactor, the BBQ is free to your family.<br /><br />The  <span>Cake Walk </span>  has reached a minimum of cakes, but let’s make this a successful event. So please <a href="http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0f45aaa622a02-cake" target="_blank">consider baking or buying a cake</a>. The more we have, the better.<br /><br />​If you are not a baker, consider volunteering for one of our  <span>many open BBQ slots</span>. Just 30 minutes from one adult from each family makes all the difference. Thank you to those who have already signed up. <a href="http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0f45aaa622a02-hardy" target="_blank">Volunteer to Grill</a>!  <a href="http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0f45aaa622a02-hardy2016" target="_blank">Volunteer to play</a>!  Volunteer to <a href="http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0f45aaa622a02-hardy2016" target="_blank">set-up</a> or <a href="http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0f45aaa622a02-hardy" target="_blank">clean-up</a>.  <br /><br />Congratulations to all our newly elected PTO board members:<br />Treasurers: Amy Reese and Lee Powers<br />Corresponding Secretary: Stephanie Hodges<br />Recording Secretary: Sarah Evans<br /><br />Kindergarten VP: Michelle Marshall<br />1st grade VP: Terry Holt &amp; Patsy O'Brien<br />2nd grade VP: Bonnie Walsh (please volunteer to be co-VP with her)<br />3rd grade VP: <br />4th grade VP: Pete Gast  (please volunteer to be co-VP with him)<br />5th grade VP: Katie Garrett &amp; Melissa Jacobs<br /><br />I also want to thank all who served this past year.
