Welcome Back To School 2014!
HES Shining Stars
Dear Harrison Families,
Welcome Back! I was happy to see all the smiling faces on Back to School Night and during the first two days of classes. When I visited the classrooms and saw the children engaged in relationship building activities with their peers, as well as their teachers, I was thrilled! Learning how to communicate and collaborate with others are key 21st century skills.
Relationships with family members are also vital ingredients in the children's recipes for success. What better way to celebrate the crucial role grandparents play in the lives of children, than by having a tea party in their honor? I hope our Harrison Elementary School grandparents will be able to join us for "Tea for Two" on Friday, September 12th.
Accountability and responsibility are words that you hear more and more in today's world. As you know, an essential factor in preparing children for college, work, and life is teaching them to be responsible citizens. Children illustrate responsibility by arriving to school on time, being prepared for class, by participating in class activities, and by completing all assigned work, including homework. Please note children will have 10 points deducted from their homework grade per day for every day it is late. After the fifth day, the children will not receive credit for any missed homework assignment. This may negatively impact their final grades.
I am looking forward to a great 2014-2015 school year! Our theme at Harrison Elementary School will be accountability! We are all accountable for our children's success! Remember s_ccess cannot happen without u!

Yours in education,
Dr. Lissette Gonzalez-Perez
