    Teach a Parent to Play Night

    Pictures from the 4th grade String Orchestra Event-Teach a Parent to Play Night held at Wood on Monday, 4/10.  Enjoyed by all! 🙂

    First Place!

    The Harrison 5th grade ELA Talent Development Group participated in the district Conservation Tag Line and Logo contest.  This was an opportunity to use PBL (Project Based Learning) to address a real world problem, create a product and present to an authentic audience.  They focused on using critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity to complete the project.  The students placed first in the elementary division and received $200.  Our next project is to decide how to spend the money for the benefit of students at Harrison.

    Beginning String Orchestra for 3rd Graders!

    Harrison 3rd grade students have the opportunity to begin playing a String Instrument next fall at Harrison School.

     Students saw a string orchestra demonstration by 4th Grade String Orchestra Students and were able to try out instruments. 

     An informational sheet was sent home with each student that included a String Orchestra Registration.
