PiE logo     Partnership in Education (PiE)

Students with maker space materials As parents/guardians of students at Hinesburg Community School, you are automatically part of PiE.  You are a Partner in Education. We work together - parents, teachers, staff, administration - to enrich our school community.


We partner for our own children, all HCS students, and for the community to create the best educational experience so our children can succeed today and beyond…

And, of course, there are special projects like the Garden for which some of us share our time and talents. Get involved!  We plan to meet every month on the 3rd Thursday at 6:30, check this page for details as sometimes the meetings change. Contact a PiE Chairperson.

The mission of PiE:


  • To support Hinesburg Community School.
  • To develop and nurture a partnership between Hinesburg families and HCS so that the parents/guardians and teachers may cooperate in the intellectual, physical, and social development of each child.
  • To build a strong and cohesive school community.
  • To enhance the educational experience of our students through grants and other donations.
  • To provide a forum for parents/guardians and other members of the community to discuss school policies, procedures, curricula, budgets, and other initiatives affecting the school as a whole.
  • To encourage the participation of parents/guardians and other members of the community in the decision-making process by offering their expertise and serving the school through volunteering on one or more of its Committees, activities or projects.
