Hello Harrington Families
Happy Monday! The leaves are changing colors, actually seems like it started overnight! It was a great Patriots win yesterday, a nice shut out for Zappe! We have a short week ahead of us, the students are doing amazing work thus far into the year. We will begin to schedule out intervention supports for Math and Reading in the next week, based on the data from our benchmark assessments.
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.
Always remember to…"Push through your day, Smile, Be Happy, Stay Positive!"
Be safe! Stay well!
Rob & Karen

Costumes 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.
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.
