Principal Message

Principal Kevin Rupprecht

Happy New Year Harrison Prep Families!

This message is brought to you by Assistant Principal Lund, filling in for Principal Rupprecht, while he enjoys a well-deserved vacation this winter break! I have enjoyed my first several months at HP, and am thankful to the students, staff, and families for being so incredibly welcoming. I am excited to continue the work here at Harrison Prep, making our school one of the best in the state!

January is great time to reset and set goals for the year. I enjoy setting goals, and especially enjoy accomplishing them! If New Year’s Resolutions have been difficult to achieve in the past, start with small, attainable goals. The celebration when you meet small still feels wonderful and can set you up to reach your larger goals the next time. Just take the first step!

With the new year comes the end of first semester, Friday January 24th! Finals, projects, and other summative assignments will be due soon. Please check-in with your student and their teachers to make sure everything is completed on time. One of those final projects might be due in an art class, and then will be displayed at our annual Art Showcase on January 15th, 5:30-7 PM, please join us for this fun event, where creativity and personality shine! Also remember that Skyward is a great resource to view current grades and missing assignments. There will be no school on January 27th, which is our semester break.

On January 17th, our Black Student Union Club will be presenting the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Assembly. Please join us at 2:15 PM to celebrate the life of Dr. MLK, Jr. The will be no school January 20th in honor of MLK, Jr. Day.

This month we will be hosting two informational evenings to share information regarding our enrollment process for the 2020-2021 school year. The events will be January 16, here at HP, at 6 PM and on JBLM at Meriwether Elementary School on January 23, 6 PM. Please share these dates with your friends and neighbors who are interested in learning more about HP and having their student attend.

For our current families, we will be requesting your students’ Intent to Return to HP, beginning in February. Your intent to return helps us to forecast just how many students we are able to bring into our learning community for the next school year. We always want our students to stay with us from their first day at HP, all the way to Graduation, but we do understand that life, family, and Military Orders do happen and we want to work with you during those transitions.

Families, please don’t forget to join us for Coffee with the Principal at 8am on the first Friday of each month, and PTO meetings the first Friday evenings, 5:30pm. This month, these are January 10th, due to the first Friday being over winter break.

Let’s start 2020 strong together!
