Engaging in School
Teachers at Harris have been working hard to develop and offer new, engaging instructional content. They are prioritizing standards and student progress. There is so much great teaching being pushed out on slide decks or happening during live Google Meet sessions. We are grateful to the many families who continue to prioritize the learning when and how they can. If you need help, please reach out to us so we can make this manageable for your family. We look forward to more great days together as Harris.

Support with Be Well Indiana!
For many of our fellow Hoosiers, struggling with mental health issues or feelings like stress, grief or anxiety may not be something they’ve experienced before. As part of the Be Well Indiana initiative, we’re providing access to tools and resources that can help people identify what they may be feeling and connect to resources that can help them through it.
Since its launch one week ago, over 25,000 people have visited BeWellIndiana.org, and we’re just getting started with the resources and tools available.
Through BeWellIndiana.org, Hoosiers can take one of several Mental Health Self-Assessments offered by Mental Health America specific to their needs or what they may be feeling. These quick snapshots of mental health can help the user decide if they could better manage their feelings or if they should seek additional support.
At this time, GC still intends to host Camp Invention at JB Stephens.
Do your kids need something to look forward to this summer? Camp Invention is coming to J.B. Stephens Elementary on July 13-17! Watch this Camp Invention 2020 video to get a preview of what students will experience. The National Inventors Hall of Fame also compiled this At Home STEM Activity Guide for families.
We now have $100 scholarships available to help families send their children to camp! A huge thanks goes out to our community partners: Hancock Health, Duke Energy and Greenfield-Central School Foundation. Complete this Camp Invention Scholarship Form to receive scholarship support. (If we have to cancel or change camp dates, full refunds will be issued to parents.)
If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Leliaert at firstname.lastname@example.org or Krista Steeno at email@example.com
