    Dear Harrison Families, 


    I am sure you have all looked at the calendar and have been shocked with how fast the year has gone so far! We are looking at a short week that starts with a 12:00 dismissal on Wednesday and then Thursday and Friday off for celebration of the Thanksgiving Holiday! Please enjoy this precious time with family and friends relaxing. 


    The book fair was amazing! I want to thank the PTA for organizing a fun event with Scholastic to make this happen! It took A LOT of organization on the part of our PTA co-chairs who ran the event and the volunteers who donated their time. The event benefited our kids getting excited about seeing new books while also supporting the school!


    Picture retakes are tomorrow, Monday, November 20th!  Any student who was absent on Picture Day will have their picture taken. If your child is getting a retake, please have them return the original to school.


    The Livingston High School's International Thespian Society is running a fundraising event on Saturday, December 1st that was communicated through the LPS Spotlight this past week. The event will give local elementary students an opportunity to create a short piece of theatre with current LHS students, in addition to performing on the LHS stage! All proceeds go to the theatre program! Essentially, it's an evening of childcare for elementary schoolers, where our high school students lead small groups through theatricalizing a fairytale. There will be a small performance for you when you pick up your kids! See the attached
    link for more information. 

     

    If you would like to help support decorating the school during the Winter Holidays, please contact Suchita Godhia at harrisoncelebrations@gmail.com. They are looking for parent support in decorating and  providing a small luncheon and would like to know who is interested. Please reach out if you would like to get involved.


    Tomorrow, the PTA meeting will be on Zoom at 7:00 pm! Please see the attached
    Zoom link if you would like to join.

    Nov 20 - Picture Retakes

    Nov 20 - PTA Meeting via Zoom

    Dear Harrison Families,


    I hope everyone had a long relaxing weekend with friends and family! We are back to normal this week, but Thanksgiving is quickly around the corner next week! Just a reminder that we have a 12:00 dismissal on Wednesday, November 22nd. We will also be off on Thursday, November 23rd and Friday, November 24th! Please enjoy that time with family and friends. November is always a short month, but this is important for all our families!


    Our Scholastic Book Fair starts tomorrow and will take place on November 14th and November 15th! We had rescheduled this for this week due to the error from Scholastic. Please reference the email on November 6th detailing all the information. I am attaching it
    here for your reference. Please make sure to load a child’s E-WALLET to make the process smooth for children to pick books. Thank you to the PTA for organizing the fair!


    Picture retakes will be on Monday, November 20th. Any student who was absent on Picture Day will have their picture taken. If your child is getting a retake, please have them return the original to school. 


    Last day to order for the PTA Pie Fundraiser for Thanksgiving! Fliers went home last Wednesday with details! Grab a yummy pie!


    The PTA will be doing a Thanksgiving snack sale on Wednesday, November 22nd. This was a very popular fundraiser that helps give our kids a special snack on half days but also supports our 5th grade events. Please see the
    attached form to place your order! Please place your order by Wednesday, November 17th.


    The Harrison Student Council is holding a fundraiser to provide fresh meals to families and people in need across Northern New Jersey through Table to Table’s
    Bag a Lunch, Help a Bunch campaign. Just one dollar, less than the cost of a lunch, can provide 10 meals! This organization works with restaurants and supermarkets to prevent food waste, and has provided over 227 million healthy and nutritious meals since starting in 1999. Last day of collection is Friday, December 15th. Please see the flier and lunch bag that will go home tomorrow for more details. Our student council will explain the initiative to all classes tomorrow.  As always, we thank you for your support and continued kindness!
