Hardy Elementary School is the proud new owner of a used short bus that is being converted into their new mobile classroom. Once tricked out and put into use this educational tool will be called The Passage. At the helm of The Passage is Colleen Ryan and Brittany Harris, teachers at Hardy. The kind of teachers you hope your child gets when they go to school. This was their idea. And they are going to volunteer their time to make a difference. And other teachers and volunteers as well. The Passage will help parents learn essential and effective strategies with their student and a teacher together. Their goal? Have 90% of third grade students reading on grade level.

They already had the bus, so how did we help? Oh you know, little things like Chromebooks, mobile wifi, a generator, a compressor, and some other supplies. We are pumped to fund applications from do gooders like Brittany and Colleen trying to make a difference in the education of our kids. Rock on, ladies.
