​I just want to THANK each one of you for what you do to educate the students of Harvest Elementary. Your passion for teaching and learning along with the belief that all students can succeed is evident within our many discussions and our data!

As we end our semester, reflect on our school's mission...

How do WE and OUR students learn best?

In which ways can we ENGAGE our students in learning while developing a LOVE for learning?

How do we ensure that ALL of our students ACHIEVE and MASTER the what is being taught?

How can we DREAM and THINK OUTSIDE the BOX to not just IMAGINE the possibilities but make them a REALITY?

Let's continue to make GREAT things happen at Harvest!

Check out our STAR data!

What's Going on at Harvest

Instructional Rounds / Data Meetings

Beginning in January teachers attending the Instructional Rounds will secure their own full day substitutes for the day. The sub will also be used in the afternoon to rotate for data meetings. If you have any problems securing the person of your choice or any other substitute please see Ms. Johnson. See has a list of subs that have shown interest in working Harvest and have been with us for instructional rounds last semester.

Please note the tentative dates of your instructional round, if you have any conflicting dates, please e-mail jerwin@madison.k12.al.us so we can rearrange your schedule.
