Harrison Happenings

A Special Mid-Summer Edition III

Meet Mrs. Kim Cinaglia in Our Main Office

Welcome to Harrison Township School. I am excited for our Explorers to start their adventures for the 2021-22 school year. I am so delighted to be a part of this amazing learning community. I am excited to bring positive energy and dedication to the students and staff at HTS.


I have been a resident of Mullica Hill for 28 years. My husband, Lou and I raised 4 great kids. All who are HTS alumni! My oldest are twins, Nick and Brittany. Nick works for Republic Bank as a collateral specialist and Brittany is an esthetician at Hand & Stone. Shannon is my middle child and is a hair stylist at Beth’s Hair Salon. My youngest, Stephen, works as a multimedia specialist for ACI. We enjoy watching football in the fall with homemade charcuterie boards and binge watching tv shows and movies.


I will be starting my 21st year at Harrison Township. I started out as a general aide assisting the students at lunch and recess. I then moved onto a special education aide position, then receptionist and now secretary to the principal. I am so lucky to have been able to have all of these different positions. I feel that my experiences in these positions have helped me develop meaningful relationships with staff and students and I look forward to my continued adventures as an Explorer!
