Special Summertime Edition: Part One

Welcome to a special summer edition of the Harrison Happenings!


Beginning in September, our families will receive their Harrison Happenings weekly newsletter on Fridays at 3:30pm delivered to your email inboxes. These newsletters always contain important information about the 'happenings' around school so be sure to take some time weekly to keep yourself current.


When in doubt...check your newsletter.


Wishes for warm summer days that are filling up with lots of positive memories.
