A Letter to Parents from our High School Counselor

Dear Parents,

As a parent, you want the best future possible for your child. In today’s world, that usually means a college education. It is possible for every child to go to college with the right planning, preparation and learning about financial aid opportunities.

I would like to invite all senior parents for their child future planning; a financial aid program is scheduled for the evening of December 17th, 2015, at 5:30 pm in the HSA –Euless. The presentation will explain the process of completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). This program will be most beneficial to parents when exploring the financial aid packages to assist with college tuition.

New Website!

Dear Parents,


It is our goal to keep you informed as we make changes that will impact your day-to-day interactions at Harmony Public Schools. Starting this week, we will be launching our new website at your campus. The changes to the structure of the website and its navigation are substantial. While initially daunting, the final product will lead to a better website for you and your student. We ask for your continued support during this transition and your feedback. Together we can create the best website for the Harmony community, but we can’t do it without you.


Thanks in advance for your patience and we will keep you updated throughout the implementation process.

Fruits and vegetables are among the most important foods for giving us enough vitamins, minerals and fiber. We should all try to eat 5 servings a day. For example, a glass of fruit juice at breakfast, perhaps an apple and banana as snacks and two vegetable at meal times. Then you have already reached your total. How many different kinds can you spot at the grocery store? Why not try new ones?

Flu season is right around the corner. The following are important tips that can help us stay healthy:

Hand Washing

· Before, during, and after preparing food

· Before eating food

· Before and after caring for someone who is sick

· After using the toilet

· After changing diapers or cleaning up a child who has used the toilet

· After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing

· After touching an animal, or animal waste

· After touching garbage

Handwashing is easy to do and it's one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of many types of infection and illness

Cover your mouth and nose

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick

Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth

Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.

WORKING TOGETHER WE CAN TRY AND KEEP EACH OTHER HEALTHY
