Dear Harriton Community,

I am pleased to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year! I hope this smore newsletter finds you well, enjoying the end of a relaxing summer, and eager to start the new year. Though we continue to address the health needs of our school community, we are eager to engage in a year of in-person learning experiences. Very soon we will be in classrooms witnessing our students and staff partner in exploration and innovation. Harriton High School affords students so many opportunities to delve into their interests and pursue their passions. We look forward to working with our families to make the school experience as meaningful and educationally fulfilling as possible for all of our students. It is our hope that this resource provides you with the necessary information for you to start this school year.


Sincerely,

Scott Weinstein, Principal

Students will have an Advisory period daily from September 9th through September 20th. During this time they will attend grade-level meetings with administrators, counselors, and teachers. They will build community with their advisor and fellow advisory members, learn about supports, programs, logistical information, and attend an activities fair called Ram Day on September 17th. After September 20th, Advisory will then meet every "A" day from 11:32 till 11:52 am throughout the year.
