H.W. Harkness Elementary
Our mission is to ensure EVERYONE learns at HIGH-LEVELS in a safe, supportive environment.
Week of 2/5 through 2/9, 2024
"Math instruction at Harkness is rigorous and fun! The top picture was taken in Ms. Martinez's room where her students were playing War with a focus on place value and greater/less than. The bottom picture was taken in Ms. Nguyen’s room where her students were working in collaborative partners and teams to multiply two-digit numbers by breaking apart. Hearing Ms. Nguyen's students encourage each other in their teams literally brought tears to my eyes." - Ms. Scheeline

Volunteers/ Chaperones NEEDED- We desperately need parents/ guardians to become official volunteers so you can be chaperones on field trips. We would like to take our students on more field trips but cannot do so without YOU! Please stop by the office to pick-up a volunteer packet and talk with Ms. Debbie or Ms. Larissa about the process.
Open Enrollment- Open enrollment begins Monday, February 5th and ends Friday, February 23rd! If you are interested in enrolling your child in our school, but do not live in our attendance boundaries or have a student entering TK next school year, please call our office to schedule a visit so you can tour our classrooms and meet our team. We will have no space in 3rd grade next year, but all other grades have just a couple of spots available. Click HERE to complete open enrollment online.
Harkness Yearbook- Mr. P and Mr. Vue are bringing back yearbooks this year and are running Yearbook Club each week with our intermediate students. You can purchase a yearbook for the pre-sale price of $15 until April 19th. Click HERE to purchase yours today!
