    Harrison Harmony Choir

    Harrison Harmony Choir presented their winter program “The Incredible Reindeer ” on Tuesday, December 16, in the afternoon for the students and then again that evening for their families. The students gave up many recesses to practice. It was especially fun that it went along with our school-wide superheroes theme!

    Veterans’ Day

    (Open to see slideshow)

    We honored those currently serving in the military and veterans on Monday, November 10. We were so lucky to have a beautiful day to be outside. The North High Color Guard presented the colors. Our special guests introduced themselves, told what branch of the military they had served in, and who they were related to at Harrison. Our guests and their families gathered for a reception hosted by the PTA. We are grateful for those who have served or who are currently serving in the military.

    Unique Creation

    As you know, the theme at Harrison School this year is Harrison Heroes – A Legion of Learners, Acquiring new super powers every day. Two of our very talented staff members have made a unique creation for the library. Custodian Brad Lange made our version of the batmobile and art teacher Laura Carter and some students painted it. See how our Harrison hawk is driving the car?

    Sweet Plantain Quartet

    The Sweet Plantain Quartet performed for us. We enjoyed hearing their unique sound of hip-hop, jazz improv, and Latin rhythms.

     

    Children’s Literature Festival

    Thirty-five Harrison third, fourth, and fifth graders attended the annual Children’s Literature Festival at the River Center. During the day-long event they listened to different authors and illustrators talk about the art of writing books. The students learned a lot. We were very proud of them.

    Thank you Harrison families for your generosity in contributing food for the Student Hunger Drive. We collected over 2600 items. The North High students who picked up our boxes reported that we collected more than all of North High, Wood, and Truman together.  The area food banks will really benefit from our efforts. Thank you so much!

     

    Firefighters Visit Harrison

    The kindergarten and first grade classes learned a lot about fire safety when members of the Davenport Fire Department came to talk to them. Then they went outside and learned all about the fire truck.

    Mo Mallard visits Harrison!

    (Open to see slideshow) 

    Mo Mallard, the mascot for the Mallards hockey team, came for our Olweus kickoff. Olweus is our anti-bullying program. These are the four rules of the program:

    1. We will not bully others.
    2. We will help students who are bullied.
    3. We will include students who are left out.
    4. If we know that somebody is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and an adult at home.

    Each student that signs the anti-bullying pledge will get a ticket to a Mallards game for February 7, 2015.
