Well, it’s that time of year already! As summer winds down, I want to wish all of our students a wonderful and fun filled end to your summer. To parents, the beginning of the school year is near! The first day of school is August 17, 2016 with orientation for our 6th graders and students new to Harmon on August 16, 2016. This partial day of orientation will begin at 7:55 a.m. with busses picking students up at their normal pick up time. The orientation will end at 10:00 a.m. with students being returned home on their bus. Students need to bring their schedule and can bring their supplies if they would like to. This is a great opportunity for our new students to get acclimated before all students begin on August 17th.
Harmon School is a place that our students will flourish and thrive during their middle school years. This year will be no exception. Our outstanding administrators and staff are second to none. They are devoted every day to make sure that our children here receive the nurturing and encouragement, both academically and socially, that they need and to lay the foundation for their future success.
I want to thank our parents and community members for their continued support of our schools and our students. This amazing Aurora support network has an immense impact on our children that my staff and I are fortunate enough to see on a daily basis. It touches our students and helps them flourish and succeed in so many different ways. This encouragement is invaluable to the success of our students. Thank you!
I look forward to enjoying another year with the incredible students that will soon fill our hallways. They will grow both mentally and physically as the year progresses and with those changes will come challenges and rewards. Together we will end the year having learned so much more. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I am always available to help no matter how big or small your concern may be. To stay up to date, you can follow my Twitter handle and check the Harmon webpage (and the Morning Announcements) frequently.
