Re-enrollment Happening Now!

Re-Enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year for Harmony families has begun!

During this time of year each January, we ask families to complete a simple, online Re-Enrollment process, letting us know they’ll be joining us for another great year of learning and fun next school year, which starts in August 2020.

This simple step allows us to make sure each current student’s spot at Harmony is reserved for the following school year, and assess how many new student seats we have available for other applicants.

Re-Enrollment at Harmony Public Schools runs January 6-24, 2020. Look for more details in your email inbox, via Skyward, or on our Facebook page.

The first class to have all students re-enrolled will receive an ice cream party!

Only one week left to order Field Day shirts!

Order your Field Day shirts today! Order forms went home with your student or click here to order online.

All orders must be turned in by Wednesday, January 22nd.

'Pennies for Patients' is off and running!

We are excited to announce that we have officially kicked off our Pennies for Patients program yesterday!

Your child will have brought home with their own collection box and a flyer that explains all of the exciting Hero Gear students can receive by collecting money in their box. This year, we are strongly encouraging students to set up an online page to receive donations, so that our school can make our biggest impact ever for the Mission of LLS. All classroom teachers have a donation website as well. The class that receives the most donations will win a class party catered by Olive Garden.

Please help donate to this great cause by clicking here. All donations must be received by Friday, January 31st.
