Happy 2020 Harris Community! I hope that you had a wonderful break and that your family is ready for the second half of this school year!
First and foremost, I want to thank the PTO and all the families that shared their love through gifts, time and talents for our Holiday Giving event last month. Our families were overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and sharing – thank you for making the holidays special for everyone at Harris. It reminded me of the African proverb, “If you want to go quickly, go alone – if you want to go far, go together – at Harris, we go together.
This month we will be kicking off our Social Media campaign. In your child’s Thursday folder, you will see a “Let’s Get Connected” packet. This packet gives you important information about how to access our Harris Website and Calendar, how to follow us on Twitter and how to join the Harris PTO Facebook Page. In the packet, you will also find a Scavenger Hunt page that allows you and your child to have fun learning how to maneuver these platforms. Your child can return it to their homeroom teacher for a small prize.
If you have a 5th grader, you know that they are entering a milestone in their lives – the transition into middle school. If you are planning to apply School of Choice to middle schools other than your neighborhood school, remember that you must have your application in by January 17th at noon. Please know that our staff is available to help with this process, just give us a call at the front office, 970-488-5200.
