Fun additions to the school from PTA

The Disbursement funds (money collected above our ’18-19 budget) we used to make some improvements to Hardy Oak this summer. The Cafeteria Stage has a brand new look thanks to Hardy Oak parent, Debbie Mulvehill.The three Filtered Water Bottle Filler Stations were installed. One was a gift from the 2018-2019 5th Grade class.

The Teacher’s Lounge got a fresh new look for the start of the school year.

Thanks to all Hornet families!!
