    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.

    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?
