Hartsbrook Family Association

Volunteer, Resources, and Support

The Hartsbrook Family Association is a hub of connection and collaboration. We primarily connect parents with one another so we can share resources and support one another, which in turn allows Hartsbrook families to collaborate in our community — with teachers, administration, board, and the students.

Holiday Fair – Feedback!

Holiday Fair: Feedback form

The Holiday Fair was hosted by the Family Association and run by volunteer parents, faculty and staff. Classes chose to host activities as well as provide food, music and shopping. Thank you all for making this event a unique opportunity to connect and create a beautiful time together while rolling up our sleeves to work shoulder to shoulder to bring this beautiful event to students, alums, families, former faculty/staff/board, grandparents and friends.

For the next fair experience, we aim to make some improvements to our process of running the fair. Your feedback is very helpful to consider as part of the planning. Thank you for your time.
