Book Fair Is Coming to Harrison!

Book Fair is coming to Harrison October 12-15. Extended Hours Family Night will be October 13 from 4-7 p.m. Now is a great time to pick up stocking stuffers! We will be collecting spare change for a worthy cause. The money we collect will be used to buy books from the book fair that we will send over to Children’s Medical Center in Dallas for their children’s library. This great idea came from one of our 5th grade students, Eliana Wade. Her brother Xander is in this hospital there and they use the library frequently. I’m so excited that we can help Children's Medical Center in Dallas through our book fair.

Students should not be placing calls, receiving texts or calls, texting during the school day unless asked to do so by an adult in the building.
