Harrison held its annual Veterans’ Day Program on Thursday, November 10. Parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents of our students who had served in the military or are currently serving in the military were honored. North High School ROTC students were the color guard. Students of Harrison staff members took turns reading poems to honor our guests. The Harrison Harmony Choir sang. Each guest introduced themselves, telling which branch of military they represented and which Harrison students belonged to them. Mr. Picht, Harrison principal in the 60s, told about particpating in an Honor Flight. He presented the book Saluting Grandpa to the school.
First 4th Grade After School Group rehearsal in our NEW ROOM! Yah!
Harrison families did a great job in helping North High School to participate in the Student Hunger Drive. Look at all the food we collected!
4th and 5th graders had the opportunity to work with the members of the Re-FL3X hip-hop group. They learned some moves and then had the opportunity to show off their skills to other classes the next day. We appreciated the grant from ArtsBasics.
The Fifth Grade Band has been having fun practicing their beginning marching skills! These marching musicians can be heard playing Hot Cross Buns in the Harrison halls on Tuesdays after school.
Solo artist Paige Hernandez had everyone dancing as she led students in an artful experience that explored hip hop and salsa!
One of the students in Mrs. Robertson’s third grade won a drawing and Chick-Fil-A brought sandwiches for the entire class. Yum!
