The spring semester will be fast, furious, and fun and once again, many thanks to all of you and the work you do, invest, and pour into our students. I am truly amazed and honored to see the great work each of you are doing - please believe me when I say this!

Social Committee Greetings!

Welcome Back and Happy New Year from the Harmon Social Committee!

Fall activities included staff birthday cakes, birth/death acknowledgements (cards & plants) & Secret Santa.

We met prior to the break and have lots of great things planned for the spring!

A “potato bar” will be offered in January; February brings Mardi Gras themed cake and a rice & beans luncheon.

Rumor has it that in March the ice cream bar cart will make a return appearance along with a chocolate fountain.

Please contact Social Committee members with any ideas or suggestions you may have.

The Social Committee is working hard to provide a variety of opportunities for the staff to see one another and enjoy the treats, please participate in the upcoming events!

We are purchasing baby trees to be planted on the school grounds = each tree planted will celebrate the birth of a faculty member's child or will honor the memory of an immediate family member.

Building Awareness

Please be visible and actively monitoring the hallways.

Also, please question and/or escort any individuals to the office who do not have a LISD or Visitor badge!
