Dear Harrison Families,

It was wonderful seeing us gather as a community for our Fall Family Picnic! The efforts to make this event happen involved many members of our PTA and I know we thank them all for their dedication to Harrison School. It is events like this that not only raise funds that are used to benefit our children but also help us gather and celebrate as a big family!

On Tuesday we are having our student picture day. Classes have signed up throughout the day to take individual pictures. Picture retakes will be provided in November for those who don't like their picture or are absent for any reason. Class pictures will be taken during our Spring picture day provided we are able due to COVID.

Our virtual back-to-school night is scheduled for September 30th. A detailed schedule and links were sent out on Thursday. Please be on the lookout for information from your child’s teacher for any additional information.

Our APEX fun run is just around the corner! This school-wide event takes students through various lessons involving leadership and decision making but also serves as one of our biggest fundraising events of the year. The two-week program culminates with a fun run during the school day with pledges supporting each student. Please see the following brochure for more details!

Finally, thank you to all those families who have supported our efforts to keep the school safe. Students have done an excellent job wearing their masks all day and also socially distancing. Parents, if your child has symptoms indicated on the road forward document issued by the NJ DOE, please do not send them to school. Thank you for all doing your part to keep our community safe!
