Adventure Camp

Adventure Camp is coming soon! Please refer to the packing list on our website for student packing needs. Watch the weather as we get closer to ensure the seasonal items are packed (coats, rain gear). Remember, students are responsible for carrying their own luggage at camp. Two items of luggage/bedding and a small backpack is preferable.

Box Top Challenge

PTA is collecting Box Tops until February 12. We are having a competition to see which class will collect the most Box Tops. There is a lot at stake for the grade levels. The winning class will receive alternate dress for a Month of Monday in March! Please drop Box Tops in the mailbox outside the office.

5th Grade elective flip is coming! We will switch to our new electives on Monday, January 24. Students will receive a new schedule during their first period that day.

Morning Drop-Off

Please be sure to drop students off in the carpool lanes in front of Harrison. This way we can ensure the safety of students.

Cell Phones

Students may bring cell phones to school; however, they are to be turned off during the instructional part of the day unless the teachers asks that they be used to support student learning and instruction. Students should not be placing calls, receiving texts or calls, texting during the school day unless asked to do so by an adult in the building. If your child is ill, he or she is to report to the clinic and Nurse Melissa will call parents accordingly. Cell phones may be confiscated and returned at the end of the day if students are not following campus expectations.
