Principal’s Message

,

Greetings Harvie Family,

 

I am happy to welcome each of you to the 2020-21 school year! This school year will be a little different from previous school years, but we are still the Harvie Family, and we will continue to provide the best educational experience we can for each of our students.

This year’s school theme is “Better Together… Heroes, Get Your Cape on and Let’s Fly High”.  We would love to have our students back within the walls of Harvie, filling our halls and classrooms with their laughter, but until then, we will be ready to receive them each day virtually.

We also recognize that for our students to have a successful school year, virtually or in person, each family needs to feel they are informed, valued, and know that we are partners in educating your child.  We will continue to do this by focusing on strong home/school connections.

We are also 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 heroes will continue to fly high!

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 family with open arms, knowing that it takes a true village to raise our children.

Let’s have an awesome school year!

 

Sincerely,

Tonya Holmes

Principal
