**MORE Exciting Happenings at Harvest...

Project Lead the Way - A hands on approach to teaching science. This is a grant that we are involved with which will help our students get involved with learning and creating. We received 50 New iPad Air 2's through the PLTW grant. These will be given to 3rd - 5th grade classrooms participating in PLTW.

UAH STEM Grant - Our school is partnering with UAH engineering students to participate in a STEM grant. This will fall in line with the new Maker Spaces students began doing in the library last school year. The UAH students are aiming to have the roller coaster done by March, 2017. Every student at HES will have an opportunity to work at this Maker Space.

Title I - Our school has officially been labeled as Title I which will benefit our students. The government will give Harvest Title I funds this fall which will be used for Professional Development, Technology, and other resources. We recently received 24 New iPads from Title 1 funding. The Library Media Center received a Promethean Board and Projector. Our students and teachers participated in a Writing Lesson provided by Title 1 funds, also.

NEW Webpage - We are using an Edlio webpage. You can access teacher canvas pages from this New webpage. However, please be patient with us as we have to rebuild our entire webpage. Here are the links below:
