Athletic Club Volunteers Wanted

We are excited to being our Athletic Club in April! Before we open our Athletic Club registration, we must first secure volunteers. The amount of volunteers we secure determines the number of students we can have in Athletic Club. This is the highest attended club at the school so we are in need of multiple volunteers. If you are available to volunteer on Wednesdays, please sign up using the link below. You do not have to commit to every week, but please see what you can do to help this club run successfully.



Box Top Contest

We are having a Box Top contest and the winners will be announced at the end of this month. Please send in all Box Tops to your classroom teachers. Be sure to include your child's name and teacher's name so we can give the credit to the classroom. Let's see what we can collect over the next few weeks!


Coffee Talk- March 7, 2019 from 5:00pm-6:00pm

Please join Mrs. Sanchez and Mrs. Dolan for our next Coffee Talk on March 7, 2019 from 5:00pm - 6:00pm in the Media Center. We will continue to discuss inequities present at our school and how we can disrupt these inequities. We want to hear from you so we can ensure all children and parents are welcomed, educated, and loved at Harris Creek Elementary.

Our next PTA meeting will be on March 7 from 6:00pm - 7:30pm. Come check out what the Parent Teacher Association of Harris Creek Elementary is doing for our students and staff. Bring a friend!

Do you have a child that is coming to Kindergarten next school year?

If so, please register your child as soon as possible, if you haven't already. We are getting full for next year and once we fill up, your child is not guaranteed to come here. You must register by the end of February to guarantee he/she will get in to Harris Creek Elementary since we are a capped school. Complete the online registration here: 


Thank you for choosing to be a part of our school family.
