HOP is the Haynes Organization of Parents: an organization of parents and guardians of children attending the Josiah Haynes School. We interact with teachers, professional and administrative staff of the school; we foster, enrich and otherwise support the educational programs and related activities conducted by the school; we present cultural and science programs and activities that aid and supplement the curriculum; and we raise money to fund professional development programs, technology purchases, classroom supplies, playground equipment and much, much more.

Welcome to Haynes 2017-18!

On behalf of the Haynes Organization of Parents (HOP), welcome to another year of fun-filled events, programs and opportunities. A special welcome to new families and staff!

HOP has open committee positions to fill. Whether you have a lot or a little time to give, there’s something for you. Get a friend and join together – all positions are easy to share and perfect for new families or those who’ve been at Haynes for a while! We are looking forward to a great year!
