Peek at the Week
September 27, 2015
Thank you so much for your attendance last week during early release conferences! We appreciate you taking the time from your day to come in and talk with us about your child. I heard such positive comments from teachers and parents; it was a wonderful reminder of just how important our partnership is to the education of our Harbins' children.
Don't forget that Harbins Days is coming soon! I am looking forward to seeing you there.
It is GREAT to be a Harbins Tiger!

Updates from Harbins Cafe
As of Monday 9/21 if you haven't updated your child's/children's free and reduced status the child will become full pay.
Harbins Cafe is now offering Vanilla milk along with our other milks.
Teachers and staff are engaged with children from 7:45 a.m. until 3:15 p.m. Please help us preserve that time. We ask that if you need to speak with a staff member, you set up a time with that person. This way, we can ensure we are devoting our attention to the children in the building and making sure we meet your needs.
Last year we earned over $3200 from Box Tops, which helped us purchase much needed technology for our school. Our first contest of the the year ends October 1.
