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.

It was another great year for the Haynes community and we thank you for the many ways you supported our children, the teachers, and the Haynes administration. Experiences funded by our generous community include all school performances, science enrichment opportunities for each grade, festivals,crafts and the wish list items that directly support our classrooms. Thank you all!

Congratulations to new HOP Board Members Nalini Luthra (Co-chair), Colleen Whalen (Fundraising Co-chair), Ojas Tamhane (Treasurer), Dee Tupta (Assistant Treasurer, replacing Jenn Stone who is stepping off the board), and Cristina Phaneuf (Secretary).

We encourage you to look at volunteer opportunities for next school year by clicking here.  We are really in need of 1-2 volunteers to plan our Back to School picnic on the 1st day of school and for 1-2 volunteers to help put together the school directory.  Both of these committees require a little bit of work over the summer months and we want to ensure that we have teams in place now, so please consider volunteering.
