Nachos at the Life Skills Class!

To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, the Life Skills class made a traditional Hispanic dish: Nachos!

The students researched a simple recipe and created a list of things to buy and make. We made beef nachos with all the toppings!

It was a simple recipe that students can make on their own to enjoy!

Meals are no longer free for all students.

Students must either pay for school meals or qualify for free or reduced-price school meals for the 2022-23 school year. School meal prices for the 2022-23 school year are:

  • Student Breakfast (all grades) $0.00

  • Student Lunch (all grades) $3.30

There is a possibility that your child may qualify for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). To find out if the children in your household are eligible for free or reduced-price meals, simply complete the Application for Free and Reduced- Price Meals online at: https://www.schoolcafe.com/harmonypshoustonsouth

  • Login or create a new account

  • If you are new to Harmony but have a previous SchoolCafe account, make sure to change your district to Harmony PS Houston South

  • Only one application per household is needed.

Here is some important information about applying for free and reduced-price meals:

  • Any family can apply. There is no penalty for families who apply and do not qualify.

  • Families who have not qualified in the past may qualify this year, as income eligibility qualifications have been adjusted.

  • Qualifying for free and reduced-price meals may provide access to many additional benefits, including:

    • Pandemic EBT benefits

    • Reduced registration fees for AP, SAT, and/or ACT tests

    • Free or discounted participation fees for activities

    • Discounted rates associated with college applications

    • Discounted rates on internet services

  • The application and free or reduced-price meal status are completely confidential. Teachers, administrators, and fellow students do not have access to this information and will have no way of knowing throughout the school year which children qualify for free and reduced-price meals.

  • Children who qualify for free or reduced-price meals have the same food options as children who do not qualify. There are no “special lunch lines” or different menu items for qualifying students.

Las comidas ya no son gratuitas para todos los estudiantes.

Los estudiantes deben pagar las comidas escolares o calificar para comidas escolares gratuitas o a precio reducido para el año escolar 2022-23. Los precios de las comidas escolares para el año escolar 2022-23 son:

  1. Desayuno del estudiante (todos los grados) $0.00

  2. Almuerzo estudiantil (todos los grados) $3.30

Existe la posibilidad de que su hijo califique para comidas gratuitas o a precio reducido a través del Programa Nacional de Almuerzos Escolares (NSLP). Para averiguar si los niños en su hogar son elegibles para comidas gratuitas o a precio reducido, simplemente complete la Solicitud de comidas gratuitas y a precio reducido en línea en: https://www.schoolcafe.com/harmonypshoustonsouth

  1. Inicie sesión o cree una nueva cuenta

  2. Si es nuevo en Harmony pero tiene una cuenta anterior de SchoolCafe, asegúrese de cambiar su distrito a Harmony PS Houston South

  3. Solo se necesita una aplicación por hogar.

Aquí hay información importante sobre cómo solicitar comidas gratuitas y a precio reducido:

  1. Cualquier familia puede aplicar. No hay penalización para las familias que solicitan y no califican.

  2. Las familias que no han calificado en el pasado pueden calificar este año, ya que se han ajustado las calificaciones de elegibilidad de ingresos.

  3. Calificar para comidas gratuitas y a precio reducido puede proporcionar acceso a muchos beneficios adicionales, que incluyen:

    1. Beneficios de EBT pandémica

    2. Tarifas de inscripción reducidas para las pruebas AP, SAT y / o ACT

    3. Cuotas de participación gratuitas o con descuento para actividades

    4. Tarifas con descuento asociadas con las solicitudes universitarias

    5. Tarifas con descuento en servicios de Internet

  4. La solicitud y el estado de la comida gratuita o a precio reducido son completamente confidenciales. Los maestros, administradores y compañeros de estudios no tienen acceso a esta información y no tendrán forma de saber durante todo el año escolar qué niños califican para comidas gratuitas y a precio reducido.

  5. Los niños que califican para comidas gratuitas o a precio reducido tienen las mismas opciones de alimentos que los niños que no califican. No hay "líneas especiales de almuerzo" o diferentes elementos del menú para los estudiantes que califican.

What is for breakfast and lunch at the school?

Student and staff Safety

Dear Parents,


As you know we have three lanes in front of our building. The middle lane is not for parking but for passing only. There is an increasing number of parents who occupy that lane in the morning and in the afternoon.

Please do not occupy the middle lane at all times. Student and staff safety is our top priority and we want to avoid any incidents that might occur due to the violation of parking in the middle lane.


Thank you for your cooperation in this important matter.
