Principal's Message


Greetings Hardy Elementary School Parents and Students,


Summer is almost over and we are gearing up for another successful school year! I hope you were able to take advantage of the great summer weather and enjoy time with family. As principal of Hardy Elementary School, I am proud and honored to announce that Hardy Elementary




Hardy Elementary students continued to meet and/or exceed all state and federal requirements for the 2016-2017 school year!! http://schoolquality.virginia.gov/schools/hardy-elementary#fndtn-desktopTabs-snapshot


Hardy teachers are excited about continuing the wonderful work with our new reading program and implementing even more student-centered instruction this school year. 


Our reading theme for this school year is "Reading Rock Stars!" We have wonderful rocking surprises in store for our little mustangs this school year....stay tuned! 


Last school year the division embraced project based learning (PBL) by embedding state standards into project focused instruction. Students were able to think critically, collaborate with peers, tap into their creative energies all while learning to communicate and speak to wider audiences. It was a SUCCESS! 


We will continue our journey of deeper learning this school year by allowing our students the opportunity to explore more hands-on learning and participating in discovery field experiments. We invite you to join us on our journey of deeper leaning and collaboration within the classroom.
