Hardy PTO is a group of caregivers, teachers, and staff organized to support learning and positive relations in our Hardy School community in Arlington, MA. 


All members of the Hardy community are automatically a part of the PTO. There is no fee to join. We welcome you and your input at any time. Learn more here about Hardy PTO programs, events, and volunteer opportunities!



Hardy PTO Meeting May 16  6:30-8:00pm


Join the meeting in-person in the Hardy library or via Zoom:

Meeting ID: 350 551 3733

Passcode: 67JvJh


Join us at our monthly PTO meeting!

The monthly meeting is a great place to learn about Hardy events, curriculum, and issues, and to hear directly from our principal as well as our teacher representative(s). 


The PTO co-presidents provide an agenda which includes a budget update from the treasurer, updates from committee leaders, and new business (upcoming events, PTO-sponsored programs and spending). 


You can participate in the conversation or just listen in. All are welcome. All are encouraged to participate. All Hardy caregivers are officially voting members.  


If you have a question or topic you would like to discuss (time permitting), please email in advance.

School Supplies for 2023 Back-to-School

The Hardy PTO ordered $7,000 worth of school supplies for students. Supplies will be delivered directly to teachers.


Depending on the grade, some students may not receive any additional supply lists from teachers. Some grades may still receive a shortened supply list.


Families will still need to provide a backpack, lunch box if your student plans to bring lunch, snack, and a water bottle.
