Principal's Message

Greetings and Salutations Harrison Families and Community Members,

It is hard to believe the 2016-2017 school year is almost over! Now it is June and it is a jam-packed month so please be sure to check our marquee, website, and your children's folders for HES happenings.

June got off to a great start with our Field Day on June 1st. We had terrific weather, awesome activities, and wonderful support from our parents, staff and  community members, and our very own ACHS scholar volunteers! On June 2nd the fun times continued with our school-wide field trip to the Paper Mill Playhouse to see Seussical the Musical. The children enjoyed seeing familiar stories brought to life! On June 3rd, I was thrilled to see Harrison Elementary School scholars represent our school at the district-wide spelling bee. I was so proud of our super s-p-e-l-l-e-r-s! Congratulations to Serra Recana for winning 1st place!

In the upcoming weeks we will have our Talent Show, Career Week, 2nd Grade Play - Beauty and the Book, L'Oreal Volunteer Day, Slime Night, and of course, our 4th grade Celebrate Your Success Brunch and Moving On Ceremony. Fourth grade parents if you have not called to confirm your attendance at the brunch, please do so. Please remember only 2 adults per family (no infants or children allowed). 

This summer I encourage you to visit the library with your children to borrow books. We will provide you with your children's lexile levels at the end of the school year, and you can use this information to select books that are appropriate for their reading levels. Also, please use i-Ready to practice math and reading over the summer. The passwords remain the same. 

In June
 the character trait that we will focus upon is integrity. Parents please speak to your children about the importance of integrity and how to exhibit this trait! We'll be presenting lessons on the topic and talking it up during morning announcements. 

If you haven't had a chance to listen to our new HES song please click on the link -> song. It is wonderful! Thank you Ms. Nagy and Glee Club members for writing this song.

It's been a fantastic year at HES! I wish all of our graduates and their families SUCCESS in all that they do! I also wish Ms. Simpkins-Armour, Ms. Wood, and Ms. Philippeaux happy retirements! We will miss all of you! I welcome our incoming 1st graders, as well as our rising 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders! I also welcome our new staff members! A very special thank you to Asha Rivas, Jennifer Reyes, and all our PTA parents! They have worked so hard to get our PTA off the ground!I look forward to working with everyone to make the 2017-2018 school year the best ever. I'm sure that working together we will be unstoppable!  See you on Back to School Night on September 5th! Have a great summer!

Yours in Education,
