September Lunch Menu

 

Each year the high school senior class plans some activities to celebrate their final year together in Harmony.  Today, they attended Senior Sunrise; they came to school at 6 AM. They were served breakfast, signed the Senior poster, and had fun.

Thanks,

Hello Huskies!

We would like to introduce to you the new COUNSELING team! We have three (3) faculty now on our team! We are: Michael Teegarden (Lead Counselor; contact him at mteegarden@harmonytx.org), Mr. Emrah Akay (College and Career Success Coordinator; Alumni Coordinator; and Counselor; contact him at eakay@harmonytx.org), and Mr. Metin Budak (Activities/Engagement Coordinator and Counselor; contact him atmbudak@harmonytx.org). Mr. Akay is in office #121; Mr. Budak and Mr. Teegarden are in office #105.

In accordance with the Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted/Talented students, Harmony Public Schools will begin taking referrals for kindergarten and newly-enrolled students in grades 1-12 for gifted and talented screening. Anyone interested in the educational welfare of these students may refer them for assessment.

Referral forms are available at the front office and on the school’s web site. Here are the links for the forms;

Parent GT Referral Form in English

Parent GT Referral Form in Spanish

The forms must be returned to the front office by Friday, September 27, 2019. G/T assessment period will take place in October.

For more information about the screening and identification process, parents may contact the school’s GT coordinator or GT coach/teacher.

 

“We are very happy to continue to reward our staff for their dedication to excellence,” said Fatih Ay, CEO of Harmony Public Schools. “Every year our 34,000 plus students consistently exceed state education standards. Our teacher’s hard work is recognized annually by major publications, such as US News Best High Schools, and noted children’s advocacy groups.”

In addition to a base salary increase of between $3,500 & $5,000, teachers will be awarded a stipend of $1,000 if they have between 5 and 9 years of classroom experience. Those with more than 10 years’ experience will receive $2,000. “We see this as an investment not only in our teachers but in our students as well,” Ay said.

The new salary schedule follows Governor Greg Abbott’s signing of the $11.5 Billion school finance reform package. Harmony chose to target additional funding into pay & benefits for teachers and staff. These increases have been presented to the HPS Board of Directors, and will be up for approval after receiving regulations from TEA.
