*Be positive about the outcome of the test, especially to your child

GOOD LUCK!!! WE BELIEVE IN OUR STUDENTS!!!

Please help us by dropping off your child on time so the testing can begin promptly. Electronic devices will not be allowed in the testing rooms. Students may bring a paper book but Ereaders, cell phones, tablets, and Chrome Books will NOT be allowed.

*THERE WILL BE NO MORNING OR AFTERNOON TUTORIALS APRIL 21ST- 25TH*


Administrative Professionals Week

In 1952, Harry F. Klemfuss of Young and Rubicam recognized the importance and value of the position of secretaries to a company. His goal was to encourage more women to become secretaries. Using his skill and expertise in public relations, he promoted the values and importance of the job and created recognition for secretaries. The week of April 21- 25 reflects the appreciation we have for our "administrative professionals" and the invaluable role they play in their place of work.


Chromebook Study

As you know, with the funding from Race to The Top District grant, Harmony Public Schools started a 1:1 technology initiative in the beginning of this school year, and handed a chrome book device to every single student and core subject teacher in grades 6 thru 12. All Harmony educators and leaders see this initiative as a tremendous opportunity to personalize student learning and radically improve achievement. With the right approach, leveraging technology can yield promising academic results and boost performance both for students and teachers. In an effort to assess effectiveness and improve our technology initiative, Harmony Public Schools intends to conduct a scholarly research on how technology integration into classrooms impacts students, teachers, and parents. This research will help school and district leaders at Harmony to make sound research-based judgments about future design and refinement of our technology programs. It will also give us a chance to get input from our most valued stakeholders. The researcher will keep participant identities confidential and will not release it to any Harmony employees, nor will he link any identities to survey inputs. We are excited about this research opportunity and would definitely like to see all our teachers, parents, and students participate as much as possible. Thank you for your continued support!

COLLEGE PEP RALLY


College Acceptance Day Pep Rally 2013

This is a video of the second annual College Acceptance Day PEP Rally held on May 3rd, 2013 by Harmony Public Schools (HPS) at Rice University in Houston Texas. More than 4,000 middle school and high school students from 15 Houston-area HPS campuses attended this exciting event to celebrate our 150 Graduating Seniors as they announced publically for the first time what College they would be attending in the Fall of 2013. Many of the Graduates were either the first-in-family or a first-generation family member to be accepted to a 4-yr College. More than 50% of these graduates went on to major in Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) fields in College.



i-READY

In order to prepare our students for the upcoming STAAR test, students will be working in an online program called i-Ready during school hours. After finishing an initial diagnostic test, students will be given additional assignments. The more questions that they get correct on an assignment, the more credit they can earn to play games in the program. We also encourage students to visit i-Ready at home for even more practice and play. i-Ready is available at www.i-Ready.com.
Here is some additional information about i-Ready:
