Happy Sunday Harrington Families

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, especially yesterday. Saturday's weather was amazingly summer like and perfect for our Battle of the BOOs! We had an incredible turnout for this year's event. I was so pleased to see all the smiles and hear all the "trick or treats." It was so nice to be able to do this event in person, with everyone walking around, enjoying themselves and not as a drive through event. My hat goes off to both Harrington and Parker's PTO's for putting together an amazing event that will bring many smiles to everyone that attended. Below, you will find some highlight pictures of the event, I am sure there are many more out there for everyone to enjoy.


Please remember that if you are changing the way in which your student will be dismissed on a particular day please send in a note with your student, or call the main office. Teachers will follow the consistent plans of that day unless there is notification from a parent/guardian to them directly. Students can be confused on dismissal plans which causes extensive confusion and a delay in the dismissal process. Again, please send in a note or call the office if you change the way your student will be getting home on any particular day.

Thank you for your continued support of Harrington. We are an inclusive community, a special community, a community that will continue to support each other.

Please ensure that you are receiving all communications from the school and that your contact information is up to date. If at any time you have changed your contact information, please let the school know so we can update our systems.

As always, thank you for your continued support of our Harrington community. Please reach out to me or Karen with any questions or concerns as always.

Once again, remember to…"Push through your day, Smile, Be Happy, Stay Positive!"

Be safe! Stay well!

Rob & Karen

Costume for a Cause 2022!

We are excited to announce our 2022 “Costumes for a Cause” event! Students and staff who choose to wear a costume to school on October 31st are encouraged to give a donation (suggestion of $1.00) in order to participate.

We will be establishing an organization to donate in the next couple of weeks. In the past we have donated to local animal shelters and St. Judes Childrens Research Hospital.

Event Rules:

  • Costumes should be comfortable and safe to wear all day.

  • Costumes must be appropriate for elementary school (no monsters, zombies, etc.).

  • Costume provides no safety risk or distraction to the wearer or others in class. Must be easily set aside-nothing to trip over.

  • Absolutely NO weapons in the costume including, but not limited to: guns, swords/knives, chains, etc.

  • Students that do not plan on wearing, or do not have a costume are always welcomed to wear Orange and Black that day if they choose.


A huge thank you to everyone who donated treats to the treat monster and to those who participated and attended Battle of the Boos. It was a great success and so much fun thanks to all of you. Congrats to the winners!
