OUR SCHOOL WOULD FALL APART WITHOUT THEM!
Our students created this giant poster to show how much they appreciate and respect our custodial staff! We realize how hard they work everyday and we want them to know how important they are to our school. Students thanked them for all they are doing to keep us safe.
One student wrote, “Thank you for always cleaning up after us… I get picked up late after school and I can see that you clean all day long. I am not sure if you guys take breaks.”
Another student made a card that said, “Cleaning is your talent. Amazing is your personality!”
Our custodial staff truly is amazing. They help give our in-person learners the ability to relax so that our students can focus on learning. Our school community can rest assured that our school is being made clean and safe by our wonderful custodial team!

Student Assistant Form
Dear Harmony Families,
We at Harmony recognize the increase in challenges that many of our students and families are facing. As such, if there is any need, for example, a need for food, clothing, mental health support, or if your family is going through a difficult time and it is affecting your child, please let us know.
This year, we are offering parents the means to communicate any non-academic needs to the
school through a Student Assistance Form, better known as a SAF. By submitting a SAF you
will be alerting the campus administrators to your child's needs and will give us an opportunity to provide resources, support, or some form of assistance.
Fill out a SAF whenever you have some concerns about a student or they need help! Scan the QR code or go to www.harmonysaf.com
POSITIVE BEHAVIOR REWARD SYSTEM
PBA stands for Positive Behavior Awards. Students earn points by exhibiting the following five character traits: Helpfulness, Honesty, Kindness, Respect, and Responsibility
When a staff member sees a student making a special effort to exhibit one of the five traits, they will be issued a PBA point in Skyward. Each PBA point is worth 10 Harmony Bucks. These Harmony Bucks can be used to purchase items from our Awards Store on the final Wednesday of each month.
Awards will start at 50 Harmony Bucks for items such as candy, chips, and special pencils. Or, students can save their Harmony Bucks all the way to 3,000 Bucks for items such as an iPad, Apple Watch, bicycle, or a Pro drone.
When a student uses their Bucks, that amount will be deducted from their account and automatically recorded on Skyward.
As a family, start encouraging students to show Helpfulness, Honesty, Kindness, Respect, Responsibility at school - and they will begin collecting PBA points to earn some great awards.
