Hello Harman Families!
I cannot believe it is almost time for school to start again! Pretty soon the days of my boys sleeping in and arguing about the amount of time they can play Fortnite will be replaced with complaints of homework and the sound of alarm clocks.
I really do love the beginning of the school year. I look forward to re-connecting with friends and hearing about everyone’s summer adventures. I am always exited to find out who our teachers will be and meet the families who are new to Harman School. August is a whirlwind for all of us I know. Fall sports, clubs and settling back into a routine seems to make the month fly by.
Whether you are new to Harman or a familiar face, the Harman School PTO is a great way to know what is happening at our school. If you haven’t joined yet, I encourage you to do so. You can join online or turn in the paper that will be coming home in your packet the first week of school.
Your PTO membership sponsors many school activities including Everybody Counts, Spanish Club and Grand Affair. You are also given access to the Harman School Directory. This year, our PTO is trying some new things. For one, we are going to utilize our Facebook page and Instagram to communicate with parents. We also plan to have a couple evening meetings to give all parents a chance to attend.
If you have other suggestions or comments, please reach out to me. The PTO is always looking for new ideas.
Harman School and our PTO are not successful without help from our parents. There are volunteer opportunities to fit everyone’s schedule. From being a room parent to chairing a committee, we are all here to support our teachers and our students. My favorite memories are helping serve lunch in the cafeteria or at the holiday parties. The kids get so excited to see parents in the school too! It is a definite ego boost!
Good luck on the first couple days of school. More information about school events will be coming home soon.
