From The Principal

The end of the 2016-17 school year is here, and this is always a time of reflection for our staff.  We are so proud of the growth we have seen from our students, which is the result of hard work, effort, and dedication on the part of our students, our parents, and our staff.    We look back on fond memories with friends, fun school events and Harvey traditions like Field Day, PBS assemblies, field trips, and of course a ton of learning.  We bid farewell to our superb sixth graders and wish them well as they begin junior high, and we are excited to welcome our new class of cute kindergartners as they start their elementary school journey.  Thank you for our Harvey community for a terrific year!

Now we will pause for a short time to enjoy summer break, which we hope will be full of rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation for all.  The staff and I are already busy planning and preparing as we look forward to the 2017-18 school year.  We are excited to start another wonderful year of teaching and learning together.

 Mark your calendars for our Back-to-School Picnic at Farmstead Park on Tuesday, August 22, from 6:00-8:30.  More information will come via email as the date gets closer.

We are in need of Lunch Supervisors for the new school year.  If you love working with children and are available to help us provide a safe and fun lunch period from 11:50-1:10, please contact the office.

If you are interested in a list of suggested school supplies, please hover over the "About Us" tab at the top of this page, click on "News," then click "Supply Lists."

On behalf of the Harvey staff, I wish you a safe and fun summer.  We look forward to seeing you on September 5 for the first day of school.

Take care,
Mrs. Pritchard

March is Reading Month so make sure you and your child are working to meet their reading goal.  Reading with your child every day helps to build their reading comprehension skills and helps to instill a life-long love of reading.  Enjoy spending time reading as a family not only during March but all year long!
