Greetings Harrison Super Stars,
I'd like to extend a heartfelt welcome to all of our Harrison Elementary School families! September is such an exciting time of year, we get to see the smiling and excited faces of all our learners! We get to establish goals for ourselves, and then we have a whole year to work towards, meeting and exceeding those goals!
This upcoming school year, each learner will have their very own Data Binder. In that binder, the learners will monitor their progress throughout the year, and make adjustments in order to meet their goals.
It is my goal to empower the children, and to help them realize that they are responsible for their success! Understanding, of course, that we (educators, parents, etc...) will be there to support them every step of the way. We all have a role to play in preparing our children for college, work and life!
This year we will continue to learn about good character, and doing the right thing - even when no one is watching! HES was proud to receive national recognition for being a School of Emerging Character, and international recognition for having a fantastic Promising Practice - our Taste of Diversity - Multicultural Potluck Dinner! HES families I hope in the upcoming school year, you will join our Health and Wellness Committee and our Character Committee.
This year's theme at Harrison Elementary School is Respect! We expect our learners to show that they respect the value of their education by coming to school prepared to learn every day. This includes completing all assigned class and homework in a timely manner, asking questions, and sharing their experiences! HARRISON STARS know that in order to succeed they must always Stay safe, Think and make good choices, Achieve excellence, and Respect themselves and others!
I am looking forward to a wonderful 2016-2017 school year! HES families, if you have any questions or concerns please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 908-298-2052. Hope to see you soon!
Yours in Education,
