Harmony Reading Challenge 'Read Learn, and Explore' is March 2-May 1, 2020.

This spring, Harmony is challenging our students to participate in a friendly reading competition across classrooms and other campuses.

Beginning March 3, students are challenged to read books and advance through pre-determined advancement levels in order to earn rewards at each stage.

With Spring Break coming up, we urge parents to help encourage their children to take advantage of this time to read books they are excited about.

You can find challenges for each grade level by clicking the link to our Spring Reading Challenge PDF below.

Parent-Teacher Data Team Meeting (conferences) will be held on Friday, February 28 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. These sessions will run similarly to our fall meetings. Parents will receive updated student data from their child’s teachers. We will also have a family night event running in the cafeteria at the same time. The topic of this session will be Mindfulness. Electives teachers will have mindfulness stations for families to visit together.

At each station, families can participate in an activity together and discuss how the activity allows them to refocus and relax. There will also be a set of activities that families can take home to extend the practices. Every family that completes all the stations and returns the evaluation will be entered into a drawing for a family fun night gift basket.

Dear Parents,

Practice STAAR is next week! Practice STAAR is used to collect student data to guide instruction. Please do not schedule appointments on testing days and encourage your child to do well on the tests and help them at home by doing the following:

  • Discuss the tests with your child. Talking about the tests will help ease your child’s worries and show him/her that you are interested
  • Make sure your child goes to bed early and gets plenty of rest. Students’ minds and bodies need to be ready for a full day of trying their best.
  • Make sure your child eats a good breakfast. It is difficult for students to think and do their best if their stomach is empty.
  • Arrive to school on time. Being late may cause your child to feel rushed and nervous. Arriving on time will help your child feel relaxed and ready to do his/her best.
  • Send your child to school with words of encouragement. Hearing, “You can do it!” or “I have confidence in you!” from you means a lot to your child.

Below is the Testing Schedule:

Harmony Families:
 
As you may already know, parts of the DFW Metroplex are under a Winter Storm Watch. Today’s weather forecast is calling for a significant drop in temperatures and a wintry mix with snow to fall into the area during the late evening/overnight hours and through tomorrow (Wednesday, Feb. 5).
 
Harmony Public Schools DFW is monitoring this weather event and will be sure to communicate any information on how it may impact school operations for Wednesday. Please be sure to check Harmony Public Schools DFW District Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/DFWHarmony/ and your child’s campus Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/HSICTigers/ frequently beginning tonight and early tomorrow morning for information.
 
Should weather conditions warrant a change to the normal school schedule on Wednesday, we will also communicate that information via our School Messenger system and through local media outlets. Our District Administrative Team will work as quickly as possible to make a decision on late starts or cancellations as soon as road conditions are evaluated.

The deadline for application for open enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year at Harmony Public Schools is almost here. If you are a current Harmony family that would like to change campuses next year, or would like to apply to become a first-time Harmony student in 2020-2021 here’s s everything you need to know about how to apply for next year.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

Every child isn’t the same. So why should every school be?

Harmony Public Schools believes each student can achieve their own unique, full potential through a caring and collaborative academic environment that emphasizes personalized learning and innovative instructional methods.

WHAT MAKES HARMONY DIFFERENT

Engaging Education: Our project-based learning engages critical thinking skills and makes learning fun with hands-on activities that educate and excite.

Skills for Tomorrow: Our curriculum has been recognized by the TEA & others for providing students the STEM skills they need for the in-demand jobs of the future.

College Ready: Harmony has a 100% college acceptance rate, and almost two-thirds of our students are the first in their families ever to attend college.

COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Does Harmony Public Schools charge tuition to attend?

Absolutely not. Harmony is a tuition-free, Texas public charter school. We believe every student deserves the opportunity to attend a high-quality public school that fits their individual needs regardless of income. 

Who is eligible to attend Harmony Public Schools?

All children residing in a Harmony school’s geographic boundary who meet registration requirements are eligible to attend. Unlike most other schools, though, Harmony’s geographic boundaries are much wider and generally include the entire community in which the school resides, meaning that all students in the area – regardless of neighborhood or family income level – have the same opportunity to attend a high-quality Harmony school.

What documents do I need to apply?

No documents are needed just to apply. However, if your child is selected for enrollment during the lottery process, you will need to provide a few basic documents that verify your child’s identity and home address.

I have a child in Harmony already, and would like to enroll their sibling for the first time. Do I still need to apply?

Yes. Siblings of current Harmony students still need to apply, but are given priority status if a campus lottery is needed.
