School Artwork Updates!

Over the summer, artist Dana Harrison was hard at work completing a beautiful Harding mural in the PE hallway and updating artwork in one of the courtyard areas of the building.We are continuing to brainstorm ideas for new artwork in the building. Please submit themes or ideas you have for Harding artwork here. We hope to add another mural next summer.

School CNXT

It is free and works similar to a social media account. You can catch up on what is going on and direct message staff. So far about 78% of Harding families have an account. Please be sure to check in regularly or set up notifications to stay informed. School CNXT will be our primary form of electronic communication to families moving forward.
