One School, One Book
Hello HTS Families~
I am happy to announce that we have two big events to celebrate at HTS this school year- One School, One Book and a visit from author Elana K. Arnold!
The goal of the One School, One Book initiative is to have our whole school community reading and talking about the same book at the same time. Our book choice for this year is A Boy Called Bat. We will kick off the event in school sometime after the new year in 2024. Our entire school is encouraged to read the book and celebrate with discussions, activities and contests throughout the winter. Many teachers will be reading the book aloud in class. We will have our final celebration on Thursday, March 14, 2024 with a visit from Elana K. Arnold!
If you would like to purchase the book for your child to read, please complete THIS order form and return it to your child’s teacher by Thursday, November 30, 2023. Purchased copies will be distributed in school in January.
We are excited to celebrate reading as a school community and look forward to your child’s participation in the event. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

A Note Of Gratitude
Harrison Elementary staff and students continue to Explore-Grow-Soar while reflecting on what we are grateful for in class. We would love to hear from our valued families and greater educational community about what and who you are grateful for at Harrison Elementary.
Please take a brief moment to express your gratitude to our staff HERE. Your words of appreciation make a great impact on our school culture and climate. The responses will be compiled and shared with staff at the end of December before the break. Thank you for being a wonderful part of who we are.
