12-7-19 Harris Creek Message


Hello Harris Creek Family,


The weather is getting a little colder and Winter is on its way! Be sure to write your child's name in their coats so if they end up in the lost and found, we can get them back to their owner! Every year we donate bags and bags of unclaimed coats after the Winter months.


Please read below for some more updates and important announcements.



BYOD- Bring Your Own Device

Harris Creek Elementary is a Bring Your Own Device school. Before students are allowed to participate in bringing their own devices to school, parents must experience a BYOD Parent Session. We have our next parent session scheduled for December 10 from 5:00pm-5:45pm, right before the PTA general meeting and Holiday Concert. 



PTA General Meeting

We will have our general PTA meeting this Tuesday, December 10 from 6:00pm-6:30pm in the gym, prior to the start of the Holiday Concert. Come and learn more about the PTA and how they support your children and teachers. 


Please consider joining the PTA!  You can show support for your school by becoming a member for only $6.00! 



Holiday Concert

Our Holiday Concert will be this Tuesday, December 10 at 6:30pm. The Harris Creek Chorus and Kindergarten will be performing, starting at 6:30pm. We will have a packed gym so we will have the doors open and cafeteria tables set up in the back for additional seating. We ask that you do not stand in the middle of the gym to film so everyone will be able to see their children perform. 


Track 1 has tracked out for the rest of 2019. They will return on Thursday, January 2, 2020. 

Track 2 returns on Monday, December 9, 2019. 


2020-2021 Assignment Strips

Assignment strips for 2020-2021 will come home the last week of school in December for Tracks 2, 3, 4. Track 1 Assignment strips are being mailed from Central Office in December. This will be your child's current school assignment for the 2020-2021 school year. 



Change in Front Office

Mrs. Cooper, our receptionist, has taken on a new role at another school. We will have a new receptionist in the Front Office in the next couple weeks. Please come prepared with your ID's and help us welcome our new receptionist to our school by being friendly and patient while the receptionist is learning all of the Harris Creek families.
