Greetings Harvie Family!

I am thrilled to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to each and every one of you as we embark on the new school year at Harvie Elementary. As your principal, I feel honored and proud to lead such an exceptional community of students, parents, teachers, and staff.

Our commitment to your child's academic and social/emotional growth remains unwavering. We are dedicated to providing a nurturing and inclusive environment where every child can flourish and reach their full potential. Together, we will foster a love for learning and empower our students to become compassionate, resilient, and well-rounded individuals.

To achieve this vision, I invite you to join hands with us in the educational journey of your children. Your active participation and support are integral to their success. Let us work in harmony to provide them with the best possible learning experience.

I urge all parents to partner with us and make a commitment to sending your children to school each day, on time and in uniform, with a positive mindset. Consistent attendance and punctuality are vital for their educational progress and overall well-being.

Our school's mission revolves around the acronym F.O.C.U.S, which stands for:

Forming strong caring relationships with and between students, staff & families. We believe that a supportive and compassionate community is the foundation of a thriving educational environment.

Operating with high expectations and clear targets in place. We set ambitious goals for our students and equip them with the tools they need to succeed academically and beyond.

Creating engagement through meaningful experiences. Learning becomes truly enriching when it's relevant, inspiring, and tailored to individual interests.

Utilizing data strategically to inform instructional planning. By carefully analyzing data, we can tailor our teaching approaches to meet the unique needs of each child.

Supplying specific and timely feedback to ensure each child achieves his or her personal best. We celebrate growth and progress, providing constructive feedback to help our students grow.

Furthermore, we encourage all families to get involved and join our fabulous Parent-Teacher Association (PTA). The PTA plays a crucial role in supporting school initiatives, organizing events, and fostering a sense of community among families.

Our school theme for the year is "Adventure Awaits... Explore, Engage, Empower." This theme embodies the spirit of discovery and empowerment that we aim to instill in our students. Let us embark on this adventure together, fearlessly exploring new horizons, engaging in meaningful learning experiences, and empowering each other to reach new heights.

Together, we can make this academic year a resounding success. I am excited about the journey ahead and the opportunities it brings for our students to shine. Let's embark on this new school year with enthusiasm and determination.

Wishing you all a wonderful year filled with joyful learning, meaningful connections, and unforgettable adventures!

Warm Regards,

Tonya Holmes, Proud Principal
