Happy Summer and Happy 4th of July,

We hope the Harrison Prep community is enjoying its Summer Break. HP is still open during the Summer to answer any questions and assist anyway we are able. Our hours are 7:30-3:00pm, Monday through Friday. We will be closed on the 4th of July in observation of our Nations birth as well as August 9th for our office staff training. I am well pleased with the HP staff as many are engaged in furthering there preparations for this new school year and your students by engaging in refining of the curriculum and instructional materials and practices, and receiving further professional development through several organizations we partner; International Baccalaureate World Organization, Washington Association of Career and Technical Education, and Solution Tree.

Teachers are preparing their new lessons for the year and are looking forward to the first day of School on August 28, 2019. Additionally this summer, we will have our 6th Grade Orientation on August 5th and 6th, from 9am to 12:00pm. This provides our 6th graders an opportunity to experience Harrison Prep classes and learn more about our mission to prepare all students to become caring, curious, confident, and college ready, graduates in our International Baccalaureate school.

Also on August 5th, our Diploma Programme Students are welcome to join us for another Extended Essay work session, from 12:00pm-3:00pm. I am pleased that nearly ½ of the HP Class of 2020 was able to attend our first EE work session on June 24th.

August 14th will be Puma Summer Orientation for 7th and 8th graders from 9-11am, and 9th through 12th graders from 12:00pm to 2:00pm. Come pick up updated schedules, get your locker checked out, visit with ASB clubs and activities and more. Come in anytime during your grade level window.

I am excited about this upcoming school year, the ASB leadership team is already planning another fantastic theme to engage our students in fun comradery. We will also welcome two new teachers to the HP community and our new Assistant Principal Tracy Lund. Please continue to enjoy your summer, and if your student needs something to do, encourage them to grab a book and read.
