About HOP

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.

HOP CoChairs March UPDATE

WOW! what a fantastic night on Friday!!! Thank you to everyone who was able to make it out for one of the biggest HOP fundraisers of the year, it was so FUN hanging out with all of you.  Our amazing community of volunteers is really what makes BINGO NIGHT a success.  We were over 50 volunteers strong, from raffle donations to refreshment sales!  Thank you to our many surprise BINGO number callers.  Did you spot Ms. Spirito up there?  What a treat!  And we’d like to give an extra special thanks to our BINGO NIGHT CoChairs: Christy Dunn, Denise Forgie and Karen Walper!   Fabulous event!!

Coming up on April 3rd we will have MULTICULTURAL EVENING, another great Haynes Community Event,  right here in our Cafetorium 6-8pm.  Everyone is invited to attend!  Many Haynes families have already signed on to display countries and cultures from around the world.   There will be live performances and authentic foods from far away places.  We are still looking for families to display places like Ireland, Italy or any Latin American cultures.  Join us as a presenter, or as a guest.  Admission is free, thanks to our local sponsors including the Chinese-American Association of Sudbury.
