Mrs. Binkley's Weekly Memo To Parents - 09/30/18

Dear Harding Parents:

We are still in the process of fine-tuning our drop off procedures.  Since first grade is now on the Mountain side of campus, 1st grade students are asked to join the Kindergarten students for drop off on the Mountain side of campus.  Teachers will come to pick them up after the 8:30 bell rings.  

Also, kindly remember to park legally if you chose to walk your child into school.  We still have people leaving their car in the middle of the street blocking access for others and creating traffic for our neighbors.  We ask our parents to follow the IB Learner Profile too!  Please model being a principled person by respecting the parking laws.
  • ELAC Orientation
    • English Language Advisory Committee is a GREAT way to get involved!  Please join us in the auditorium on Wednesday to learn how you can impact our students and school!

    • This class will teach about the educational system and ways that you can get more involved.

  • Homework Club
    • Please remind your children that the library is open after school from 2:30 - 3:30 for Homework Club.
  • Lunch
    • Having the students eat in the cafeteria is much better!  Students are eating more and they are more conscientious about cleaning up after themselves.
  • Vision and Hearing October 2
    • The Vision and Hearing Team will be here to do our mandated screenings for 2nd Grade, 5th Grade, and any special requests.  Please let Mrs. Menegon know if you have concerns about your child’s vision or hearing.
