    Parent Survey

    Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) requires states to report the percent of parents with a child receiving special education services who report that schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving services and results for children with IEPs.

    The Iowa Department of Education is gathering these data as a census for both students with and without an IEP using a brief survey. If willing, click on the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2018AEA9

     

    Dress Like Your Favorite Idiom!

    Throughout the  third quarter, the Fifth grade students worked on the following standard: L.5.5b Recognize and explain the meaning of common idioms, adages, and proverbs.  As a culminating activity for third quarter, several students dressed up as his or her favorite idiom. Can you find “I’ve got a chip on my shoulder,” “at the drop of a hat,” “break a leg,” and “all eyes on me”? Teachers Allison Jump and Sheila Ehlers dressed up “like two peas in a pod”. Oh, no, “it’s raining cats and dogs!” Look, there’s a “dust bunny”.

    Protect Our Watershed Expo

    The North High School Art and Science departments invited Harrison students to participate in the inaugural “Protect Our Watershed Expo”. This event was presented by the City of Davenport and North High School on March 10, 2018 from 10am – 3pm at the River Center. The theme for the expo was “Getting Ahead of our Watershed”.

    During their art periods, Laura Carter’s students learned about the watershed and why we should care about it. First grades through fifth grades reflected on what they discovered about our local watershed and how we all depend upon a healthy watershed.  It was a great collaborative effort putting our ideas and artworks together to create a wonderful mural titled, The Life of the Watershed.  The mural was well received and Harrison students are very proud of this project.
