October is in the United States. Let’s deepen our understanding of this language-based challenge and try to raise awareness in our community.

 Eight-year-old Evan is one of the brightest children in his third-grade class. He has a wonderful vocabulary and knows everything there is to know about baseball—he can even tell you who played in each of the last ten World Series games and who won. But when it comes to reading about baseball—or anything else—Evan has a lot of trouble. It takes him a long time to read each word, and even longer to read whole sentences. He often has to guess at how you say a word—and sometimes his guess is wrong. Reading out loud is especially stressful and embarrassing. His teacher recently told Evan’s parents that she thinks he might have dyslexia.

 Most people assume that part of being smart is being able to read well. About 100 years ago, though, doctors figured out that some people, even some very smart people who do really well at many other things, have trouble learning to read. This difficulty with reading is called dyslexia.

Harmony parents,

On Friday October 7, all lost and found items will be donated. Please be sure to remind your kiddos to double check for any items that might be theirs.


Harmony parents: Please submit the 2022-2023 meal application for your student(s). The eligibility status derived from the meal application is not only used for your child’s meal status, but it helps determine how much state funding your child’s school qualifies for (for things like books and classroom resources), as well as helps determine if your student is eligible for discounts on dual credit, AP, or college applications (if a high school student). It also helps with qualifications for other community programs.
Meal applications may be submitted online through www.schoolcafe.com.
For questions or assistance, please contact the campus Child Nutrition Assistant.
