Greetings Hardy Students and Parents!

As we enter this new school year, I would like to continue setting high expectations for our students in regards to academic performance within the classroom and responsible citizenship at the school and in the community within our learning community.  Doing so will enable all of our “Scholars” to have a successful and enjoyable school year.

I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you as the school year progresses.  You will find that my door is always open and I am always here to support you in any possible way.

Our partnership is essential for continued success.  A proud panther prepares for progress!


Mr. Vertis Holmes
