Good day, Harmony Family!

We hope this letter finds you and your family doing well. The end of school year is here and it is now time to turn in any school owned items, specifically Chromebook computers.

Please see the schedule below for turning in school items. This event will occur on a drive through basis and you will not need to get out of your vehicle. The drive through will be entering from Rushing, passing by the Middle/High School exit, then proceeding out towards Fairbanks.

When you turn in items, please have Chromebooks charged, open and on so that HSI Staff can verify the Chromebook works and has no damage. If the Chromebook is not in this state, you will be asked to pull over to a designated spot so that the Chromebook can be plugged in and checked.

Any other items, such as books belonging to the school, may be turned in at the same time and location.

Harmony Public Schools has been honored with the National “Above and Beyond” Award for service to students and the community during this pandemic.

As part of efforts to celebrate National Charter Schools Week (NCSW), today, Harmony Public Schools joins a select group of 10 schools you may not have heard about from across America being recognized by the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools (National Alliance) as Above and Beyond Award honorees. At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Harmony Public Schools assessed the needs of students, their families, and the community, and quickly mobilized. The Above and Beyond Award was earned by schools that took the extra step to serve not only their own students, but also the broader community—during the coronavirus pandemic, despite all the challenges that came with transitioning to online learning.

Specifically, staff at Harmony Public Schools in Texas are producing face shields and medical supplies for local health-care workers and first responders on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19.

The school gave the team carte blanche to manufacture protective medical gear and equipment. Within a couple days, 100 Harmony staff members volunteered and got trained about how to make face shields using 3-D printers and they’ve since donated more than 3000 face shields in coordination with county and health officials across the state of Texas. Each face shield takes roughly five hours to manufacture and costs around $1 to make.

Additionally, Harmony Public Schools staff members have served more than 350,000 meals to children in their communities.

“When schools nationwide transitioned to distance learning, it became clear to us that charter schools were setting a model for the rest of the nation on what it looked like to step up and care for their communities in the face of a global pandemic,” said Nina Rees, president and CEO of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools. “There are many public schools that served their students well in the face of COVID-19, but the exceptional work of our Above and Beyond Award winners embodies compassion and caring for people outside their school community who also needed help. Their work is a model of servant leadership for the rest of the nation,” she added.

National Charter School week celebrates charter school achievements May 10- May 16.  For information on the national charter school movement, please visit the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools website at www.publiccharters.org.

Harmony Public Schools has made the decision to host this year’s commencement ceremony virtually, due to the growing COVID-19 pandemic, orders from the local government, and recommendations from public health officials.   
We would like to thank you, our Harmony family, for all you are doing to help keep your student focused on their academic achievement during these unique circumstances. We often talk about the importance of a collaborative culture between teachers, school leaders, students, and families. Throughout this crisis, you have continually shown what it’s like for a school system and its families to work as true partners in education. We’re glad you’re a part of our team!
 
We will continue to update you as specific dates, times, and other details for the virtual graduation ceremony become available.
 
Wishing you and your family the best,
