    Dear Harrison Community,

    Our students have officially finished NJSLA testing in all grades! If your child missed a test for any reason due to absence, we will have them take it any time in May during the testing window. We will be pulling many students, so please make your child aware that we will be pulling them to test if they were absent! We will do the same with the teachers. 

    Our Harrison Multicultural Night is
    Wednesday, May 24th from 5:00-7:00 pm! Thank you to all the parents who are hosting tables to represent and teach our children about the diverse population that lives in our community! Students will be taking a tour and filling out their passports as they learn so much about what makes us unique and special. Please refer to the times and information for this event on this PTA FLIER. This event will take place primarily on the upper blacktop area and is a parent-supervised event. Cultural food will be served. Feel free to dress in cultural clothing or colors from a country you want to represent! 

    We are excited to announce that the application window is now open to express interest in both our Elementary Gifted and Talented Art Program and Gifted and Talented Music Program.  These programs are for students who will be entering grades 4 and 5 in the 2023-2024 school year.  Students previously enrolled in either GT Art and/or GT Music do not need to reapply.
