School & Office Hours

Parents, please note that first period will begin at 7:40 am. Students can be dropped off starting at 7:00 am. Breakfast will be available starting at 7:15 am.

If for any reason you need to visit/call our front office, the hours are as follows:

Car Tags

Parents please make sure that your student’s car tgs are visible for dismissal. The car tags are important to help dismissal run smoothly and efficiently. For the safety of your child, if you do not have your car tags, you will need to park and walk into the front office with your ID to pick up your child. Please make sure that your car tag is visible throughout the whole line.

Box Tops for Education

We will be collecting Box Tops throughout the year to help earn money for our school. Our school is now registered using the Box Tops for Education App. Click here to see how simple it is to earn money for our school while shopping! Remember, each box top is worth 10 cents!

Clubs & Tutorials

Information about clubs and tutorials will be sent home on Friday, August 23rd. If you wish to enroll your student in a club, please either visit the front office to submit payment or send a check with your driver's license number with your student to secure their spot. Clubs are first come, first serve. Payments will be accepted between August 26th through August 30th. Clubs and tutorials will start on Tuesday, September 3rd.

Payments will be accepted during office hours which are 7:35 am to 2:00 pm and again from 3:30 to 4:30 pm.

MAP Testing Next Week

From August 26th through September 11th, our Kindergarten through 5th grade students will be taking MAP assessments in various subjects. These are taken for tracking and identification purposes, not for a grade. These assessments aid teachers in the classroom by providing immediate feedback on the subjects and topics your child understands, as well as where they excel and where they may need more help. A letter is being sent home in their folders today to explain more about the assessments and where you can find more information. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Bradow at sbradow@harmonytx.org.

A Note from PTO

We are so happy to be back for the 2018-2019 school year! The main role of our school’s PTO is to build strong working relationships among parents, teachers, and our schools, in support of students. If this is something that might interest you, please do not hesitate to sign up! Click here to access the membership form. Once completed, drop it off with payment to the white PTO box located to the left of the front office windows.

If you are interested in helping out this year, please click here to fill out the HSA-KATY PTO Volunteer Interest Survey and return to the PTO box by August 30th.
