Dear Harrison Families,

This week many of our 3rd graders have finished their NJSLA testing! We are so proud of these students for working hard every day. The NJSLA starts this week for our 4th and 5th graders! If you have a child who will be taking this test, it is important that they get a good night's sleep and follow normal routines for coming to school! Students should also arrive on time. If they are late, they will not be able to take the test for that day and must make it up on another day. It is also very important for all students to bring their charged Chromebooks to school.

Also, parents of 4th and 5th grade students for the 2022-2023 school year (Current 3rd and 4th grade parents), we are excited to announce that the application window is now open to express interest for both our Elementary Gifted and Talented Art program and Gifted and Talented Music program. Students previously enrolled in either GT Art and/or GT Music do not need to reapply. All applications must be submitted electronically no later than Thursday, May 26, 2022. Detailed information for both the GT Art and GT Music programs, along with the applications for both programs, can be found in the links below:

Our Multicultural Night is just around the corner! This year on May 25 from 5:00-7:00 (rain date May 26), enjoy our community for a night of celebrating the many cultures represented at Harrison School. This event is successful due to parent volunteers! Thank you to all the families who have already volunteered to create a table displaying your culture/country! The PTA would also like to celebrate by having pictures or short video clips of our students in various ethnic attire or traditional clothing of their heritage. If you can, please send pictures to with the subject line MCE2022. In addition, we are looking for additional volunteers! If you are willing to help in any way, please email the above-mentioned address.
