We're Hiring

Harmony Public Schools is recruiting talented, compassionate bilingual teachers dedicated to helping every student succeed. Harmony offers a competitive salary, excellent benefits and a commitment to excellence in the classroom.

Interested applicants may read the job description, or apply online.

 Harmony Public Schools will allow each family to choose whether to continue learning from home or return to campus for in-person learning for the 2020-2021 school year, based on each family’s unique needs. Families can also switch between the two as local COVID-19 conditions or family situation changes.

The flexible learning plan was announced by Harmony CEO Fatih Ay in a letter to families.

“The best choice for Harmony in 2020-2021 is the choice that’s best for your family,” Fatih said. “While this flexible plan may be an uncommon approach, we firmly believe it is the right approach for families during these uncommon times.”

Families that choose at-home learning will have access to the same rigorous, academic environment that they have come to expect from their neighborhood Harmony campus, taught by teachers trained for educating and engaging students in a virtual environment.

Families who choose to send their students for in-person learning will find a safe and organized learning environment that they can feel comfortable sending their child to each day. This includes enhanced health  and sanitary protocols, as well as possible adjustments to daily routines to help keep all of our students and team members as safe as possible.

All students will continue to receive the same full academic and support services from their teachers, counselors, and school leaders that they would receive on-campus, including our English-language learners and students receiving Special Education services.

Helping to keep families connected regardless of their learning location is Harmony’s new, all-in-one learning management system Schoology. Through Schoology, students and families will have full access to instructional materials, assignments, grading, calendars, and parent messaging in one platform that follows them seamlessly from at-home to in-person learning and back, if needed.

Harmony Public Schools is a Texas-born, Texas-wide public charter school system with campuses serving PreK-Grade 12 students in 23 cities across the state, including Greater Houston, DFW, San Antonio, Austin, El Paso, Waco, Lubbock, Odessa, Bryan, Beaumont, and the Rio Grande Valley. Harmony’s curriculum places a heavy focus on STEM skills, Character Education, project-based learning, and college readiness. 

Harmony Public Schools is currently accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year for both students and team members.

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.

Good day, Harmony Families,

We hope this finds you and your family doing well.  As you all know, we are going through this pandemic and dealing with the inconveniences created the best we can. Since our students did not have a chance to take their belongings from their lockers, we created a schedule for this to occur.

This schedule is for 6th – 12th grade students. If you have any questions concerning the belongings of Kinder – 5th grade students, please contact Ms. Glovier via email at vglovier@harmonytx.org

Social distancing must be adhered to.  Student locker clean out will be according to the following schedule, alphabetized BY FIRST NAME. To ensure social distancing, this schedule will be strictly followed.

*Siblings in the same household may enter together at the scheduled time of either student.  Other than this, no exceptions to the schedule will be made.

*Remain in your vehicle until the scheduled time begins so that we do not have a congregation at the front of the building. 20 minutes will be plenty of time to remove all belongings.

 

ALL PERSONS ENTERING THE BUILDING MUST:

*Wear a face mask covering nose and mouth (even if it is a bandana or shirt)
*Not touch anything except their own locker and belongings

*Remain six feet away from all others at all times

*Be in and out of the building during the allotted 20 minute time frame

Dear Harmony Families and Team Members,
Earlier today, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced that all Texas school campuses will remain closed through the remainder of the current school year.
Accordingly, Harmony Public Schools will remain online-only. During this time, we will continue to provide free meal services, as well as chromebook access to those students who need them.
Information about ongoing coursework, grading procedures, end-of-year advancement, student counseling services, and documentation and resources for families with special education needs can continue to be found at HarmonyTX.org/AtHome. We will share more information about graduation for seniors as more information becomes available, and as the Texas Education Agency continues to offer its guidance.
Thank you.

Harmony School of Innovation – El Paso teacher, Henry Salgado, is one of only 28 high school science teachers that has been selected by the SETI institute as a 2020 NASA Airborne Astronomy Ambassador (AAA) and will fly on NASA‘s SOFIA. The teachers selected represent 13 states with only four teachers from Texas and Mr. Salgado is the only teacher selected from El Paso, Tx.

AAA is a professional development program for high school science teachers designed to improve science teaching and increase student learning and STEM engagement. Training includes a week-long immersion experience at NASA‘s Armstrong Flight Research Center Hangar with participation in research flights on NASA‘s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA). The program culminates in classroom delivery of a SOFIA science-oriented curriculum module.

The SOFIA is a Boeing 747SP aircraft modified to carry a 100 inch reflecting telescope that can fly into the stratosphere at 38,000 – 45,000 feet, which is about 99% above Earth’s infrared-blocking atmosphere allowing astronomers the ability to study the solar system and beyond in ways that are not possible with ground-based telescopes. SOFIA is made possible through a partnership between NASA and the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
“I am honored to have been chosen to be a part of this once in a lifetime program and represent Harmony Public Schools and the El Paso community,” Salgado said. “I can not wait to attend this training and conduct research experiments that will later turn into classroom modules for my students. I hope to inspire others and show them that they too can accomplish anything they set their mind to.”

Dear Parent/Guardians,

Starting Monday, April 6 we will move into phase II of distance learning; digital learning. Our dedicated teachers are ready to start the digital learning journey with you. Chromebooks have been distributed and Google Classrooms have been created to engage our students in continuing their academic excellence.
For your convenience, we have created a helpful video to guide you with Google Classroom. For English please visit https://bit.ly/34akJb9 or for Spanish please visit https://bit.ly/3dQv0xz
