Good Evening Harris Creek Family,


Please take a few minutes to read over some important information about what is coming up at Harris Creek Elementary and how we can continue to work together to partner for your child's success!


T 3 & T 4 Splash & Dash- 

Tomorrow, August 28, is our T 3 & T 4 Splash and Dash! Make sure to enter your last few pledges on FUNRUN.COM tonight! Thank you  for supporting our school and helping us reach our fundraising goal! We can’t wait to celebrate your students and cheer them on. You’re invited to join us for the fun! The times are:

9:30am | Track 3

10:40am | Track 4

2:00pm | Track 3 & Track 4 4th & 5th Grade Color Dance Party

Students will get wet during the Splash & Dash. Send an extra change of clothes if you'd like them to change after the event. 4th and 5th graders will get full of color at the color party, with colored powder.  Allow them to wear clothes that can get colored. 


Tracks 1 & 2-

You still have a chance to pledge as well! Harris Creek is working together to raise $25,000 for 70" Classroom TVs for State of the Art instruction AND a school-wide dance party, so we need everyone's help!


Goodies With Grandparents-

The school and PTA will be working together to celebrate our wonderful grandparents in honor of Grandparents Day. We invite grandparents to come in to school on the following dates and times to have a treat together with their grandchild(ren). We will have a little activity to help our students get to know more about their wonderful grandparents. The event will be from 2:00pm-3:00pm to allow time for the grandparents to leave the parking lot before the start of carpool. 

Students in Tracks 1 & 3 will be able to enjoy Goodies with their Grandparents on Friday, Sept 6th from 2:00pm - 3:00pm in the cafeteria.
When signing up, please include your child's name and teachers name in the comments. We want to make sure 
we notify the teachers who will be attending ahead of time and make sure we have enough goodies for everyone!
Tracks 2 & 4, will enjoy Goodies with their Grandparents on Friday, Sept 13 from 2:00pm-3:00pm. The link will be sent out next week to sign up. 

T 1 Tracks Out after Friday, September 6.

T 2 Returns on Monday, September 9.

T 3 & T 4 Fall Pictures are on Wednesday, September 18. 


Parent Partnership Nights-

Partnerships between school and home are the foundation for student success. We invite you to start this partnership with your teachers on the following dates. Each evening will have a different focus so plan to attend all 3.


T 1- 10/8, 1/21, 4/21

Each evening will run from 5:30pm-7:30pm.


Teachers will run 3 sessions each. Parents only need to attend 1 of the sessions per child/teacher. The rest of the time families can eat, parents can network, and check out the venders on site that support our school. 

Session #1: 5:30-6:00

Session #2: 6:10-6:40

Session #3: 6:50-7:20


Top 5 reasons to attend Parent Partnership Nights:

5. Childcare is provided and dinner will be available for purchase.

4. Create parent-to-parent networks.

3. Connect to what the students are learning.

2. Build a partnership with your teacher.

1. Receive free materials to support your child at home. 

Have an amazing evening and ask your child to tell you about the Number Drummer Assembly they experienced recently!
