My name is Sarah Navin and I am grateful for the opportunity to represent Hopkinton’s Parent Teacher Organization as President for the 2023-2024 school year. Previously, I served on the board as HPTO secretary and also have volunteered for numerous organizations in town including as President of the Hopkinton Moms Group and on the Communications Team for the Hopkinton Education Foundation.
My husband and I moved to town in 2011 and have raised our three children here; a rising fourth grader, rising second grader and rising kindergartner. In other words, for the first time in our house, all three of our kids will be in school full day AND walking the halls of 3 out of the 5 schools in town which will be new for us to say the least.
It was important for me to represent and help grow the PTO because I understand how
important this nonprofit is to our school system and for the families of our town. We strive to allow access for our children to learn in the best school system possible and the PTO is an incredible resource to help provide the additional tools necessary to make that goal a reality.
Our Hopkinton PTO provides a gateway for teachers and administration to access programs, special events, and learning devices, all while allowing parents more knowledge and opportunities to play a larger role in their children’s academic lives. In addition, our PTO is special as it is one of very few in the state that spans 13 grades and therefore, we really work hard to provide events that raise money for our schools while offering opportunities for the entire community to come together including the end of the school year carnival, the HopSwap and Wizards basketball games just to name a few.
One of my main goals for the upcoming year is to provide better communication about the HPTO, what we do, how we do it and ways families and community members can get involved. Please feel free to reach out and let us know how we can help you or if you or your business would like to get involved.
Thank you so much for this opportunity. I look forward to hearing from you and appreciate your support.
