5th Grade Adventure Camp

Our 5th grade students will be attending the Collin County Adventure Camp on Nov. 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, 2016. Students will leave Harrison Wednesday morning, spend two nights at camp, and return to Harrison Friday afternoon before school lets out.

The cost of the camp is $165 per student and $100 per adult chaperone. Because we are going so early in the school year, we need to have paperwork turned in as soon as possible. If you are making a full payment, it is due by Sep. 21st, but please return the paperwork this week. We will not be able to accept any students after Sep. 21st. Please make checks payable to Harrison Intermediate or HIS.

If you have any questions about Adventure Camp, please contact your child's science teacher.

Tardies

Students that are arriving after the 8:15 am bell will need to brought around to the office. The drive that is to be used is on Ballard on the south side of the school.

Cell Phones

Students may bring cell phones to school; however, they are to be turned off during the instructional part of the day unless the teachers asks that they be used to support student learning and instruction. Students should not be placing calls, receiving texts or calls, texting during the school day unless asked to do so by an adult in the building. If your child is ill, he or she is to report to the clinic and the school nurse will call parents accordingly. Cell phones may be confiscated and returned at the end of the day if students are not following campus expectations.
