Volunteers  Calling All Harrison 5th Grade Parents!


Welcome to the 2014/15 school year!  This is an exciting, yet bittersweet year for our children as it is their last year at Harrison.  The 5th grade year is filled with many wonderful experiences.  Our children are assigned their Kindergarten Buddy who they mentor as the little ones begin their journey at Harrison.  There are trips, parties, gifts, service projects, and the culminating event of their Graduation/Moving Up Ceremony and end of year 5th Grade Celebration.  All of these things are made possible through the efforts of volunteers.  As of today, we have received a limited number of 5th Grade Committee volunteer forms.  Please consider volunteering your time by returning the attached form so that we will be able to provide our children with a 5th Grade year filled with wonderful memories!  Feel free to contact the 5th Grade committee Chairs with any questions!
