Dear Harding Families, Happy holidays! This is a wonderful time of year, but also very busy and so can be stressful. As the adults scurry around preparing for the excitement of the holidays, children can also feel the stress and exhaustion brought on by this busyness. Please continue to support your child in his/her school success by ensuring a bed time is maintained at a reasonable hour. Adequate sleep supports learning, brain development, concentration, and mood and so directly affects children's success at school! 

Snow and ice are just around the corner. As a reminder, if school is delayed 2 hours, school begins for students at 9:45. Breakfast will not be served on any day that school is delayed. Please follow the directives given on television, through robo calls or the radio to know of any weather-related delays, or school closings. 

Thank you for your participation in the recent parent-teacher conferences. The teachers enjoyed meeting with you and learning more about your child. Please be sure to contact your child's teacher with any concerns that arise. Working together will help your child succeed. We value our partnership with you and your support of your child's learning. 

As winter break draws ncar, please remember that school is in session through Friday December 20th and attendance will be taken and monitored. We continue to work as a school community to ensure that every student meets the minimum requirement of attending school 94% of the time or better. School will reopen on Monday January 6th. 

Remember to mark your calendars with the following dates: 

Dec 3rd - Holiday Shop 

Dec 19th – Christmas Concert Grades K-4 

I wish you a safe, restful holiday season and a very happy new year! 

Teri Coward- Principal
