Harrison School of Character

Principal's Message

Greetings Harrison Families,

Happy Spring! We kickoff April by introducing the character trait of the month, which is trustworthiness. We encourage our families to discuss the importance of being a trustworthy individual. Can others safely believe your words and actions? Can they rely on you not to let them down? I trust everyone is ready for a super Spring Recess! Please note the school will be closed the week of April 2, 2018 and will reopen on Monday, April 9, 2018!

Our annual schoolwide field trip is around the corner! We are very excited to take our children to the Philadelphia Zoo. Did you know the charter to establish the Philadelphia Zoo was approved and signed in March 1859. However, due to the Civil War, the zoo’s opening was postponed until July 1, 1874. The admission fee back then was 25 cents for adults and 10 cents for children. Today admission is $24.95 for adults and $19.95 for children. That’s quite a difference in pricing! Once again, thank you for helping us raise funds for this wonderful trip. I am sure it will be a fantastic experience for our children! On the day of the trip, Friday, April 20th, the children should be at the school by 7:45 am. We plan to leave by 8:00 am, and due to traffic and distance we cannot wait for any latecomers. Please be on time.

On the week of April 23, our third and fourth graders will take the PARCC standardized test to assess their progress in Mathematics and Language Arts. The children may feel nervous about the upcoming assessments. To calm their fears, I encourage you to remind them that they have been preparing for this assessment since Kindergarten, and that we already know they are GREAT! The results of the standardized tests will just help us identify how we are doing and how we ALL can get better!  In order to be 100% ready to take the PARCC, please make sure the children get a good night’s sleep, have a nutritious breakfast, and get to school on time! I believe our Harrison Stars will shine brightly!

As always, please contact me if you have any concerns. I look forward to meeting with you! My goal is to work with you to help or children excel!

Sincerely,

Dr. Gonzalez-Perez
