A message from HSIC PTO

Hello fellow Harmony families & friends!

HSIC PTO is excited to announce our Box Top collection initiative this year!

Please help support our school by collecting Box Tops for Education. All you have to do is clip and save Box Tops from various products. Each Box Top earns $.10. (10 Box Tops=$1.00!!)

You can either send them to school with your child to be collected in the classroom or drop them off in the collection bins that will be located in the lobby. (Make sure to drop them in the correct bin as they will be labeled per house.)

To keep it fun, each house will be earning points for the Box Tops collected. For the month of September, we will award one point to each house for each Box Top collected!

Let’s see which house can collect the most Box Tops!!

Feel free to email the PTO @ PTOHSICarrollton@gmail.com w/any questions or comments about Box Tops.

Students can wear their house colors for spirit week next week. Every student has already been assigned a house and knows the color of the house they belong to. So all week students may wear their house color and earn points each day for their house.

**Spirit week attire must adhere to school dress code. ***

What are House Points? We are implementing a new behavior incentive program. Students were randomly assigned houses. Based on good and above and beyond behavior, students will be awarded points to their ‘house’. The house awarded the most points at the end of each month will have a party to celebrate. We are focused on positive actions and want to promote responsibility and citizenship through this program.

Important Message From Harmony School of Innovation- Carrollton

Dear Parents/Guardians,

This letter is to inform you that there will be a change in the schedule for Thursday, May 31, 2018.  The last day of school will now be Friday, June 1st instead of Thursday, May 31st due to the TEA not approving the waver for the makeup day for when we had the pipe burst incident in November.

Friday, June 1st will be a half day/ early release at 11:50 am, please be sure to notify your daycare facilities.

Thursday, May 31st will be a full school day and will follow the regular schedule.

Class parties will be held on the last day of school, more information will be sent out by your child’s homeroom teacher. Students will have lunch prior to dismissal, parents won’t be able to join them.

Please note that this change only affects Harmony School of Innovation – Carrollton AND NOT Harmony Science Academy (HSA) next door.

Public Comments on Proposed Bonus Redesign

Dear Educator,
Following TEA’s announcement of the new accountability system, we started a redesign process for our performance bonus structures to align with the new accountability measures in school year 2018-2019. Based on feedback collected through surveys and deeper discussions in our bonus redesign committee meetings, we came up with a set of proposed changes to the current bonus plan. We are now in the public commenting period to collect final recommendations on these proposed changes before the new bonus system is presented to HPS Board of Directors for approval in June. Please review this slide deck to see the proposed changes and click on the following link to leave a public comment. You may respond to the public comment survey multiple times to provide comments on different parts of the proposed changes. Public comment period closes on June 1, 2018. Thanks in advance for your valuable contributions.

Important Message- Update Campus Lockdown 2-23-18

Dear HSI Carrollton Parents and Guardians,

In our commitment to keep you informed, we want to make you aware of the precautionary lockdown that occured this morning in response to a written threat at HSA Carrollton. Students and staff followed protocol perfectly, and I could not be more confident in our ability to keep your student(s) safe. Harmony School of Innovation Carrollton temporarily went into lockdown, and nobody was allowed to enter or exit the building from 9:30 until 11:10. The local authorities joined campus administrators to investigate the matter, and determined that the threat was not valid.

Harmony School of Innovation- Carrollton is committed to the safety and well-being of all our students. We take this responsibility seriously and try to communicate with parents about safety issues when they arise as quickly and as clearly as possible.

We appreciate your continued support as we work to ensure a safe and productive learning environment for all of our students. Should you have questions or concerns about this letter, please feel free to reach out to me.

Yours in Education,

Clinton Barnes M.Ed., Principal

Harmony Giving Day 2017

Harmony College Fund Graphic


Harmony staff, teachers, and administrators have spent countless of hours preparing our students for college and each year approximately 85% of our graduating class enrolled in a post-secondary institution.

But, despite these impressive enrollment numbers, far too many of our low income and first-time college students drop out as they hit financial and circumstantial barriers such as the cost of attending college, that has increased by 36% in the last 10 years. Harmony Public Schools has 5,033 graduates to date and is projected to have 11,686 graduates by 2020, current funding sources are unable to meet even the current demands of these programs. Clearly, additional financial support is required.

We are asking our Harmony community to consider going beyond educational efforts, providing even greater assistance to our graduates through generous Harmony Giving Day contributions to the Harmony College Fund. All your donations will go towards helping our Harmony graduates to complete their higher education dreams and achieve their career aspirations by providing additional scholarships and direct college and career support services.

Let’s come together to reach our target of raising $50,000 on our first ever giving day.

Thank you for your generosity.
