School group recruiting new members

The Hopkinton Parent Teacher Association is encouraging parents and teachers to become members of the organization, which they say provides more than $120,000 worth of volunteer hours to the local schools each year. Everyone who signs up to be a member of the group before Sept. 27 will be registered to win one of three gift certificates donated by Colella’s Supermarket on Main Street. In addition, members get a free copy of this year’s student directory, early access and discounts to extracurricular activities, school communications, and volunteer opportunities. For more information and to join the group, visit the association’s website, www.hptaonline.com.
