Harrison Elementary Update

Posted on: October 7, 2022

Just a friendly reminder that next week is the end of our first quarter of school. Please make sure you are checking your child’s Progress Book grades to see that all assignments have been turned in. Students will be only in school next week Monday through Thursday. A teacher record's day will take place on Friday without students.

Don’t forget you can now follow us on Twitter and Facebook. Please make sure you are members of the correct sites. There were several “unofficial” sites created and we are trying to inactivate them. I have been posting a lot of pictures of events happening at Harrison Elementary. Feel free to send them out to family and friends. This is a great way to keep up on events in the school.

We have had a great start to the new school year. The students are demonstrating our Four Core Values – Trust, Respect, Ownership and Leadership – throughout the day.

Have a great weekend!

Building Character

October’s Character Trait is Trust/Trustworthiness: Be honest, be reliable-do what you say you will do, have the courage to do the right thing, be loyal, build a good reputation, and don’t deceive.

Please reinforce these monthly traits at home and throughout the month. 


Parking – Friendly Reminders

When dropping off your child in the morning or picking them up in the afternoon please make sure everybody is utilizing the crosswalk. Safety is our number one goal and by utilizing the crosswalk to get across the street students will be safe. The back of the school and near the school dumpster should not ever be used as a drop-off or pick-up location due to the number of busses that come into the area.

When in cue to enter the parking lots, please do not block the bus entrance on Elm Street. Parking on Broadway is a perfect location to meet older children after school versus entering the pick-up cue.

Please pull up to the next car when picking up your child in the drop-off area.

Please do not block the crosswalk area and be especially careful coming into the parking lot off Broadway. Students and parents walk across this area and have the right-away.


PTO Planning Meetings

You can now join PTO online simply by clicking the link below. Just your small membership fee of $10 helps us provide services for the kids! This does not require you to volunteer or attend meetings. It is all up to you how much you would like to be involved. If you have any questions, please reach out to a board member.

Joining the PTO is not a huge commitment and often looks like 1-3 service hours a year with opportunities in the evenings, during the school day or can be as simple as signing up to send in cookies for an event.  Everyone doing a little adds up to a LOT for our kids.

Next PTO meeting will be October 10, 2022 at 7 pm

Hope to see you soon!

We have staff members and computers throughout the day available to help you with this process.
