(If your child's math teacher is not one of their team teachers, he/she will make every effort to come to a portion of your scheduled team conference.) Please schedule separate conferences with your child's elective teachers.

Every year, in an effort to build our community, we offer Harmony Team gear for the kiddos. Normally it is a huge hit! This year is no different. For the next couple of weeks, kids (and parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc.) can order t-shirts, long sleeve t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies featuring our Harmony mascot, Monte! The shirts are a great way to show team pride. The gear is available to anyone who wants to order it. You can print it off and send it in with payment. The kids got order forms today in class as well. Thanks for all of your support.
Here is the link to the form:
