Welcome to the Harrison School PTA!
The Harrison School PTA is an active volunteer organization where parents and teachers work together to provide educational, fun and enriching programs for children and their families. We sponsor many wonderful programs during the school year that are organized solely by parent volunteers.
This Year's Basket Bonanza is on Thursday, March 27th at the Hanover Manor
Basket Bonanza is Harrison's biggest annual fundraiser! The funds raised from this event are used largely towards technology and for funding educational and fun programs for Harrison students year after year. In the past years, Harrison school has received Smart Boards, Document cameras, clickers, ipads, nooks, etc. We look forward to keep the tradition alive and make 2014 the best year yet. Doors open at 6:00pm. Download reservation form here. Must complete reservation form by March 17th.

Great basket themes are: Gift cards to local stores, Sports teams, hobbies, theater, electronics, kitchen, jewelry, handbags, home goods, kids stuff, weekend trips, Department Store Gift cards.

"Tasty Tuesdays" are Coming in March!
March is National Nutrition Month. In celebration, children will be encouraged to "Make a Healthy Choice." On Tuesdays during lunch, the PTA will display a popular food item that is high in sugar, fat or with artificial colors and preservatives alongside a delicious, nutritious alternative. The benefits of the healthy choice will be explained and the children will have the opportunity to sample the nutritious alternative and "Choose to be Healthy."
To celebrate St. Patrick's Day on Monday, March 17th, we will be offering green sprinkles during our ice cream sale (a request by the Student Council!). Frozen yogurt cups can be purchased for $1.00 or a white beverage ticket.
Our School Needs Your Help!

Cost of membership is $10 only, and with that, access to the first ever mobile buzz book! For new families, the Buzz Book is a child and family directory where you provide information (address, phone numbers, email etc.) so that people in our Harrison Community can contact you (or your child) for birthday parties, play dates or just to say 'hi'.
