2014-2015 District Calendar

 

This year, we are continuing to implement The Leader in Me at Harrison Elementary.  We are developing leadership skills in our students, starting with teaching them about the 7 Habits and incorporating them into our work with students.  Students are empowered to live the 7 Habits in all they do throughout the day, learn how to be leaders, and lead by example.  They are involved in giving ideas on how to make Harrison a better school and in participating in the betterment.  Students lead the pledge and announcements each morning, give tours to visitors, act as safety patrols for students crossing the street, clean the school grounds, help students solve problems and make friends during recess, shelve books in the library, deliver birthday bracelets, assist with monthly safety drills, take care of lost and found items, and the list continues to grow!  The community will be invited to our Leadership Day on April 3, 2015 so our students can showcase their leadership talents.

We are the proud recipients of the Idaho State Board of Education Distinguished School Awards for improvements in student performance.  Our ELL teacher, Ana Nail, was honored in September 2012 for the amazing growth she had with her students.  Imagine Learning, the computer company, named Harrison as a “World Class” school, their highest honor.  Harrison is one of only 23 in the nation to be so honored.

Our school hosts the district-wide developmental preschool, the district-wide extended resource program for grades K-1, as well as grades kindergarten through five.  We have 560 students in Kindergarten through 5th grades.

Our mascot is the Husky and our school colors are red, white, and blue.  Each Friday, we show our school spirit by wearing red and/or blue shirts.

If you have suggestions for items and information to include here, please email the  Webmaster and share your ideas.
