Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is amazing to see our community come together to celebrate our diversity! We had over 20 tables that represented cultures from around the world and from our very own Harrison community! Thank you to all the parent volunteers who made specialty dishes that represented their countries, designed activities, and made detailed visuals that taught all our children who participated. Children traveled with their passports and received stickers. They were excited to learn about people different from their own experiences. The time and effort that you all gave to provide this experience are appreciated by all the Harrison Community!
As we are moving closer to summer, I want to make sure everyone takes advantage of purchasing books for your child to read in the summer from our Virtual Book Fair. The sale ends on June 14th. Please see the details from our PTA newsletter for information on how to order. The secret to reading growth is very simple. Children who read continue to grow as readers. Make some book choices from the book fair that are engaging for your children and also support our PTA at the same time.
As it gets warmer and warmer please remember to have your children bring in water bottles they can access during recess and continue to bring in towels in a separate bag that children can use. It has been extremely useful and students are definitely used to the routine. Thank you all for your continued support to finish this year strong!
