National School Breakfast Week 3/2-3/6

The first week of March is National School Breakfast Week. In honor of this week, we want to encourage students to eat breakfast at school. According to the NEA Health Information Network, "studies of school breakfast programs have found that students who eat breakfast at school show improved academic achievement – especially in vocabulary, math and standardized tests – have better attendance records, are less likely to be tardy and exhibit fewer behavioral and psychological problems. Children who regularly eat breakfast also have a better quality of nutrient intake and are less likely to be overweight or obese." So make breakfast time your favorite time and make time for school breakfast!


Spring Break Tutorials

This spring break, in an effort to prepare your child for the upcoming STAAR testing, we will be offering tutorials to all students in all tested subjects. Math and Reading tutorials will be offered from 8:30 AM-12:20 PM, and Science and Social Studies tutorials will be offered from 1:00 PM- 3:50 PM on Monday through Thursday the week of Spring Break. We strongly encourage your child to take advantage of this free tutoring opportunity!

Certain students will be mandated to attend tutorials based on their performance this year on Practice STAAR tests, quarterly District Assessments, the NWEA MAP tests, and on recommendation from the teachers. These tutorials will be essential for students’ success on their STAAR tests. Parents will be notified on Wednesday, March 4th if their child or children are required to attend.

Breakfast and lunch will be served Monday through Thursday. Breakfast will be served from 8:00-8:30 AM, and lunch will be served from 12:20-1:00 PM.

Please contact Heather Smith (hsmith@harmonytx.org) for questions related to the 6th-10th grade tutorial program, or Lindy Ermoian (lermoian@harmonytx.org) for questions related to the 3rd-5th grade tutorial program.
