The Skipper Scoop

Week of April 29th


We are back at it this week after a somewhat dreary weekend. The sun will come out at some point this week I am told...Hope you got to see family, relax, or see the Avengers this weekend.

Thanks you to the community groups and parents who have donated toiletry items for Harding's care closet. When this community pulls together for a common goal, there is nothing it can't accomplish. We are still accepting donations to the high school office. Thanks to those who can help.

Big news just in....Harding has been nominated for Fox 8 Cool School! This is a well deserved opportunity for this school and our community to show off all the good things going on at Harding! Please follow the link below and vote. Don't forget to share with family and friends far and wide!

Make it a great week Skippers.
