2. Develop growth mindsets for our students, teachers and community

As Volunteers: Research shows students do better at school when parents take an active role in their child's education. Parents are able to assist teachers with copy machine work, bulletin boards, art projects, special programs, field trips, tutoring and many other tasks. Many of you have special talents that can be used to enhance the programs and facilities at Harrison Elementary. Please consider becoming a ROOM ENGINEER who can mobilize and coordinate each grade level's parents.

PTA: Please plan to attend the first PTA meeting and as many after that as possible. Join the PTA and give them your support. We are happy to have you and your family at Harrison Elementary.

We are a growing school that provides a quality education. Our staff of teachers is dedicated to providing every child an opportunity to be successful. We look forward to working with you, and continuing a committed partnership to ensure success for your child.

Sincerely,

Wendy Jung, Principal
