Hardy PTO provides annual enrichment funds for grade-level field trips, assemblies, and in-school programs.


Past enrichment activities have included trips to Drumlin Farm, Wright-Locke Farm, Mass Audubon, Franklin Park Zoo, Concord Museum, and Museum of Science, as well as in-school presentations by the Acton Discovery Museum and Kidstock.


Grade-level volunteers coordinate with classroom teachers in planning field trips and presentations.
