Principal’s Message

Greetings Hero Families,

Welcome to Harvie Elementary!  We are so excited to embrace our school theme this year “We Can Dig It… #LifeReady Heroes Leading the Way!”  Our theme goes along with the division’s vision by ensuring we are incorporating the Deeper Learning Model and Henrico Learner Profile into the learning experiences our students will have daily.


I am so proud to share that we remain a FULLY STATE ACCREDITED School!!!! The hard work and dedication of our students and staff shows!!!  With a sincere FOCUS, we will continue to make gains each year.


As a staff, we are dedicated to “FOCUS” on our five goals this school year:


  • Forming strong caring relationships with and between students
  • Operating with high expectations and clear targets in place
  • Creating engagement through meaningful experiences
  • Utilizing data strategically to inform instructional planning
  • Supplying specific and timely feedback to ensure each child achieves his/her personal best


With a sincere focus on each of these areas, our students will continue to lead the way!


As we begin another year of the Covey Leader in Me 7 Habits implementation, our heroes are making amazing decisions regarding their behavior and academics to prove they are leaders.  Our boys and girls will continue to grow as leaders and lead the way toward greater heights of excellence!


This school year we continue to ask our entire school community to embrace Harvie and spread the message that our number one priority continues to be student achievement.  My charge for my staff and myself continues to be for us to challenge our students intellectually, grow them socially, and continue to guide them toward independent critical thinking and problem solving.  This can all be done through quality planning, data analysis, and professional conversations, all rooted in what is best for our students.


Harvie continues to maintain a strong PTA and I ask that each of our family members support them by becoming a member.  Harvie is a community driven school, and we invite our families and community members into our school with open arms, knowing that it takes a true village to raise our children.


Let’s have an awesome school year!
