Peek at the Week

Affirming words from moms and dads are like light switches. Speak a word of affirmation at the right moment in a child's life and it's like lighting up a whole roomful of possibilities.

Don't forget...students will dismiss at 12:15 on September 24 and 25. Plan ahead.

Early Release Conferences

Parent-Teacher Conferences are around the corner! Please mark your calendars for September 24 and 25 for this important time with your child's teacher! We hope to have 100% of our parents attend a conference!

Lost and Found

Lost and Found items will be placed in the lobby during early release conferences. Please stop by and take home any items belonging to your child. All items will be donated to charity following conferences. Thank you for helping our lost items find their way home!


Please take a moment to complete the very brief parent perception survey that will be available online to our parents through the GCPS Parent Portal beginning September 24, 2014. The online survey will also be available to you at Harbins when you come for parent-teacher conferences. Your feedback is very important to us and helps us to continuously improve! We hope you will take a few minutes to complete the survey!
