Safety Fair!

Thanks to Sabina Suggs and Marci Bargeron for an incredible Safety Fair this year! We had a great turn out and a lot of great feed back! We had a fire engine, ambulance, firehouse, C.E.R.T., ident-a-kid, window safety, and many other participants! The K-9 unit also showed us how police dogs really work! Wow! Don't forget all the yummy food! Not only did we have hot dogs and chips available, C.E.R.T. provided baked goods! Yum! Many of our teachers also came to support us! Thanks to all who volunteered to make this year's safety fair a huge success!

Harvest Elementary Orchestra and Chorus!

Harvest Elementary is again excited to offer an orchestra and choir for our students this year! Last year was a huge success and all the students had a great time (while learning to play an instrument and to sing harmony)!
We have an incredible new music teacher this year by the name of Sandy Cox. Many of your students have already had the privilege of having her for their specialty class this term. She has expressed how excited she is to keep these programs running and can't wait to get started!
She is very talented musically and will do an amazing job as our orchestra and choir director! Don't forget to sign up your student(s) to experience all that our Harvest Elementary orchestra and choir have to offer!

6th Grade Barbecue!!

The 6th graders (and their teachers and parents!) planned a barbecue for today! Parents were asked for donations to help with supplies, food, etc. and to donate their time to help make it a huge success! Mr. Christofferson and his class provided the music. The 6th graders provided the entertainment :) including the chicken dance, the macarena, YMCA and lots of others. (See top picture!)
There were so many parent volunteers that we were able to count at least 30 volunteer hours! Wow! Dad's came with grills to help cook and mom's were there to help everything run smoothly!
There were a lot of different activies going on so everyone had something to participate in! Some sat around and talked, others played soccer, others danced (even one of our dads)!! We won't name any names but he was just as great as the kids!
The food was great thanks to the donations from the parents and to the careful planning from our incredible 6th grade team! The barbecue was a huge success and a tradition that I am told will continue on!

Teacher Appreciation Week

Our breakfast last year for the faculty was a blast! Kerri Ann, Emily, Leslie, and a million others did a fabulous job! They had picked a movie star theme and even created a "red carpet" for our incredible faculty to walk down! There were also paparazzi roaming around driving everybody crazy! I guess that's what they do best! Everyone involved definately went all out to let our teachers know that they are all "oscar" winners in our book!

Our New Blog

Hey all!

Well, here it is. Our new blog! Yahoo! A lot of work stills needs to be done but it is at least a start. I am still trying to figure it all out! I actually considered myself pretty computer savy until I decided to do this blog. Ahhhhh! Now I don't know what to think of my computer skills! :) I am always open to suggestions from all you "bloggers"!

I am hoping to be able to post activites and volunteer opportunites for our school when they are available! Who knows if anyone will use it but it is definately worth a try! Our #1 goal is to see how many parents we can get involved with their child's education! We will see how it goes!
