Greetings Harrison Families,
Time is just flying by! I know you are busy with all your spring activities, and with everyday life, but I hope you will make time to join us for our fantastic Open House on May 11, 2016.
On that night, our young scientists will exhibit the results of their science experiments! I can't wait to see all the marvelous displays at our annual Science Fair! I am always amazed at our students creativity, as well as their families creativity. The New York City Ghost Busters will be on hand that evening- helping students create slime! Please remember to submit your Science Fair proposal to Ms. Dubon!
Did you know that the first week in May is designated "Teacher and Staff Appreciation" Week? During that week, we acknowledge and celebrate our teachers' dedication to our students and families, and to their profession! This year we have set up a "Shout Out" board across from the main office! Please stop by and add a note expressing your appreciation!
Some other May happenings include our 2nd grade school play, our 3rd and 4th grade Spelling Bee, our Talent show, and our trip to the Bronx Zoo! Most importantly, teaching and learning will continue every day in every classroom!
Another very important May happening is Mother's Day! I hope everyone has a happy and relaxing Mother's Day, as you are showered with your children's unconditional love! Enjoy!
Lastly, as you know, this year's theme at Harrison Elementary School is Responsibility! It is imperative that your children come to school prepared every day. They should have their homework assignments complete and be ready to learn! Please check your children's homework every night, and sign their homework pads. Also, if you have any questions or concerns please e-mail me at email@example.com or call me at 908-298-2052. Hope to see you soon!
Yours in Education,
