Harris Weekly Update



Harris Community,

I wanted to reach out to thank everyone for your partnership here at Harris. We have had several evening performances as of late and it is inspiring to see so much family and friends supporting our students. You know we cannot be successful without your support as we all are partners in your child’s education.

I always say that breaks come at the right time and this year is no exception. Once they come back on Tuesday, January 4 we will be moving forward academically with high expectations for your child’s academic success as well as behaviorally. Please remind students the importance of school and the high expectations everyone at Harris has for them. Last quarter has been a bit of struggle in terms of behaviors and lack of effort so I am asking that everyone please have a chat with their child in an effort to ensure high standards of academic achievement and behavior will be firmly in place so that ALL have the opportunity to learn.

In closing, I hope everyone was able to rest, relax, and enjoy the time as it went by so fast. We look forward to welcoming everyone back in January as we dig deep to ensure we are doing our best to retain our “A” rating!

What Does It Mean To Be A Title I School?

Title I is the largest federal aid program for public schools. Schools can be designated as “Title I” if certain criteria are met. Title I is the federal government’s commitment to closing the achievement gap between low-income and moderate to high income students. These funds are used to help all students meet academic standards. Click the links below to learn more!
