Winter MAP Testing
Starting next week of Jan. 16th, your child will take tests called Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) for the Middle of Year (MOY). We give students MAP tests to determine your child’s instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year (beginning - BOY, middle - MOY, and end of year - EOY), and from year to year in the areas of Math (K-6th), Reading (K-6th), and Science (4th-6th). Your child will take the tests on a chromebook in their homeroom class. Please see the schedule below:
Tuesday, Jan. 17 - Math (K-6th grade)
Wednesday, Jan. 18 - Reading (K-6th grade)
Thursday, Jan. 19 - Science (4th-6th grade)
MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to be appropriate for your child’s level of learning. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. And with MAP tests, we can administer shorter tests and use less class time while still receiving detailed, accurate information about your child’s growth. Following each testing period, you will receive a report showing your child’s growth.
Teachers will be discussing middle of the year growth goals with students for each subject. Please talk to your child about their goals.

Hello Harmony Tigers ! 🐯 Our lunch and breakfast menus for the the month of September have been updated! Our families can now view what we will be serving daily as well as any nutrition label on each item.
Hello Harmony families!
The school year is in full swing, and as your principal, I’d like to thank you again for the wonderful privilege of educating your student.
In Harmony’s continued effort to build stronger relationships between our campus and your family, I encourage you to take advantage of our Home Visit program.
Harmony’s home visit program is nearly as old as the school system itself, beginning in 2001, just one year after the first campus opened its doors. If you volunteer for this service, your student’s teacher will come by your home on an evening of your choosing to provide you with educational resources and answer any questions.
Harmony’s teachers and staff have seen home visits improve the communication between families and their campus. Students realize their parents and teachers are working together for their benefit, often resulting in improved classroom behavior and academic success.
Harmony teachers visit more than 7,000 homes each year, and we want to make sure your student receives this helpful tool. To receive your own home visit, please fill out this form below. Please sign up before Aug. 10 and your name will go into a drawing for a book basket. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com
Start the sign-up process by clicking here: https://harmonyps.ezcommunicator.net/edu/harmonyps/ezcomm/VolunteerRegistration.aspx?app=0 and selecting a Username and Password for your volunteer account. These are the credentials you use to sign-in to your account after you have been approved to volunteer. Your Username can be your Email Address but is not required to be. Your Password must be a minimum eight characters, using letters and numbers only. Do not use any special characters.
Have You Registered Before?
If you registered as a volunteer last school year, or if you received an email from our RELATRIX ezVolunteer system in the past 12 months You Already Have An Active Volunteer Account. You DO NOT need to register again. In fact, all that will do is create more work to sort through your old and new registrations. Our system will notify you when to Re-Verify your volunteer profile and go through another background check.
By completing this registration process you acknowledge and agree that Harmony Public Schools will run a criminal background check as a condition to approving you to volunteer. Furthermore, you acknowledge and agree that Harmony Public Schools may periodically re-run such criminal background check for as long as you continue volunteering in our schools.
If for any reason we do not approve you to volunteer we will notify you and if you request, provide the information used in making our decision along with details of how to correct any inaccurate background results with the credit reporting agency that provided them to us.
If you are unwilling for us to perform a background check do not proceed with this registration.
