We will be having our Quarter 2 Awards Assembly on Thursday, January 18, 2017. The times are as follows:
6th-7th Grade:   10:10 am
8th-9th Grade:    1:30  pm
10-12th Grade:    2:20pm

“On January 11th Harmony School of Innovation-El Paso campus hosted it’s annual Alumni Panel–an opportunity for students to interact with college attendees from Harmony Public Schools, and to have their questions answered concerning the day-to-day of college life. Panel participants were HSI graduates Brittani West from Notre Dame University, Jazmin Campos from Emory University, Edgar Aldama from The University of Texas at  El Paso, moderator Keisha Sepulveda-Rivera from Texas Tech university and HSA graduates Mistue Yoshimoto, Genesis Barraza, Carolina Lopez, and Zaira Perez, all from The University of Texas at El Paso. Students benefited from a host of thoughtful questions that answered questions regarding the college essentials, how to find the best fitting school, and the financial do’s and don’ts of college, including loans and grants. The purpose of the assembly was to encourage Harmony students to seek opportunities that college provides-including why, and how to do so. After the assembly was dismissed, students with lingering questions were encouraged to come up to panelist and speak one on one to learn more and ask more personal questions. The event was a positive growing experience for all involved.”

Harmon School of Innovation- El Paso will participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) on February 1, 2018.  NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students know and can do in various subjects. It is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, within the U.S. Department of Education. NAEP is different from our state assessment because it provides a common measure of student achievement across the country. The results are released as The Nation’s Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public. If your child is selected and you do NOT want them to test, please submit your request in writing to the front office.


Attention all 9-11 grade students:

HSI-El Paso is arranging a University of Arizona at Tucson  trip for 9th, 10th and 11th  graders.  The trip will give students an early look at college life and the admissions process.  The trip will also give our  students the opportunity to bond as they are making their way through high school.  It is one of the many opportunities that HSI offers in order to enrich educational value.  Please see the permission slip for further details.

I attached the permission slip and picture to use for the website announcement.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
