Dear Parents and Guardians,

We hope this letter finds everyone enjoying a restful, short break as we enter into the final month of the school year. Memorial Day weekend is a time where we should enjoy the company of friends and families, but most importantly remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to allow us to live in the country we all call home. I also think it’s a time to recognize those who currently serve or have served in the armed forces. Thank you to all those in our community who have served in the armed forces or have lost loved ones in pursuit of freedom.

Thank you to all those who had made Field Day 2021 a huge success! Our teachers, faculty, staff, and parents made it possible to spend the day outside as a community practicing the themes of fair play and sportsmanship. Thank you to our fabulous Physical Education teachers, Mrs. DeVito and Mrs. Adams, for planning and preparing an event filled with activities to help teach our students valuable lessons.

Just a reminder, there will be no school on Tuesday, June 1st. This day is a giveback for an unused snow day.

On Wednesday, June 2nd, we will celebrate our annual Multicultural Day. Thank you in advance to all those parents who are preparing food and educational experiences for our students to visit different cultures all at Harrison School. Last week, this event was canceled due to weather, but as of right now the forecast looks positive. We hope to see you all there.
