We are joining our campus next door for a Special Event for our Parents/Guardians. This year has been very different for our students and families; please join us in a Parent/Guardian Zoom Session on Mental Health. See the attached flyer. The zoom link will be sent before the event. We hope to see you there!
Join Middle School Student Council as we support the Marine Corps mission to bring joy to underprivileged kids during the holidays.
As an HSA Middle School Student Council, we are planning to host a Fireside Reading Night event on Thursday, December 3 from 6:00 to 7:15 PM in order to give back to our Harmony community, We have designed this event in a Zoom meeting format, and there will be two breakout rooms for two different grade ranges. One of the middle school teachers sponsoring the Student Council will be in each breakout room and will ensure that the event goes smoothly.
As our target audience is elementary school students, we would like for the flyer and sign-up sheet for this event to be shared with the K-5 families at HSI. I have attached the flyer to this email and linked the google form below. Could you please have it included in the HSI Wednesday mail or distributed to the students and families another way?
