Reading skills are foundational to educational success for all students.

Encouraging students to read more improves their skills and promotes a love of reading they can continue throughout their educational years and into adulthood.

That’s why Harmony Public Schools is hosting a fall Reading Challenge for all students in all campuses.

Join your classmates from across your campus and across the state from Monday, October 5, 2020 though Sunday, January 3, 2021 as together we show our love for reading and discover new and exciting ideas, authors, and stories through our favorite books.

Along the way, we’ll recognize our top readers and campuses each month, share favorite book picks, and ask for your reviews on some of your favorite reads.

The reading challenges by grade are:

Kindergarten – Grade 2
20 Books

Grade 3-5
10 Novels

We’re excited to be partnering with the American Childhood Cancer Organization and host a couple PJammin Days!

What’s PJammin Day?
Your child will have a chance to wear pajamas on Wednesday, September 16th and Thursday, September 17th with a $5 donation for each day. Donations can be made here: give.acco.org/HarmonySchoolOfExcellence

All pajamas need to be dress code appropriate (no spaghetti straps, midriff showing, short PJ shorts, short PJ dresses, etc – families can refer to page 19 in the handbook). Participation is not mandatory.

100% of the donations will go to supporting families of childhood cancer! Thank you in advance.

Dear HSE-SA Families,

When the COVID-19 pandemic first began in our state last spring, we promised our Harmony community that our response to the pandemic would always be focused on keeping our entire Harmony community safe, and our students focused on learning. As a school system that places a heavy emphasis on science and math, we also promised that all of our decisions would be based on the best science and data available.

Today, we wanted to share with you an important update about the reopening of our campus. Just as importantly, though, we wanted to share with you more detailed information about how that determination was made and what specifics steps toward reopening will happen next.

Please find our complete Back to School Transition Guide HERE: HSESA 20-21 Back to school transition plans.

Thank you for your support during these unprecedented times, and for helping keep our students safe and focused on learning. We will continue to keep you updated as new developments take place.

Sincerely,

Yusuf Kandir
Principal
