SUMMER REMINDERS for parents and students...

1. Harrison recently joined the ranks of the other schools in purchasing books for an online library. Go to the school homepage and click on the purple word (Capstone). This will bring you to a selection of quality books that read themselves to you. Virtually all of them are also AR books and even have the quiz#. It's useful summertime fun on the computer.
2. Every child should practice keyboarding during the summer. ABCYA has several learning activities for keyboarding. 3rd and 4th graders were signed up at the beginning of the year and given several lesson on using They use their Accelerated Reader login. If they want to be prepared, they should practice.

On behalf of our entire staff, I would like to thank you for visiting the Harrison Elementary School Website.  We are the Harrison Hawks!

I believe that one of my favorite poems describes this "partnership" better than anything I could write:


I dreamt I stood in a studio,

And watched two sculptors there.

The clay they used was a young child's mind,

And they fashioned it with care.

One was a teacher, the tools she used, were books, music and art.

One a parent with a guiding hand,

And a gentle loving heart

Day after day, the teacher toiled, 

With a touch that was deft and sure.

While the parent labored by his side, and polished and smoothed it o'er.

And when at last, their work was done, 

They were proud of what they had wrought.

For the things they had molded into the child,

Could neither be sold nor bought.

And each agreed they would have failed,

If each had worked alone.

For behind the parent stood the school,

And behind the teacher, the home.
