Whats Happening In August

Message from our Principal

I want to welcome back all returning students and give a special welcome to our new staff and 5th grade students. The first day of school is full of information and a sense of newness. The books smell fresh and the crayons and pencils are sharpened. This newness should extend throughout the year as each day should be a day for new learning.

If at any time you have a question about what is occurring in your student’s class, please contact your student’s teacher. Your child’s classroom teacher is always the place to start. If you still have concerns, then you should contact the administration staff for support. We all need to work together to benefit our students.

As in the past, both breakfast and lunch are FREE for all students. There are links to all of the forms required for your student(s) in the body of this newsletter and we ask that these be completed prior to your student coming on the first day.

I am excited to introduce the new staff at Harding. They are:

Mrs. Larissa Andrews - Intervention Specialist
Mr. Brenton Colabella - Math
Mrs. Amanda Coldabella - Science
Mr. Justin Davis - ELA
Mrs. Shay Greiner - Office Staff
Mrs. Brandi Kidwell - ELA
Mrs. Annie Lesiak - Science
Mrs. Jennifer Meyer - Intervention Specialist
Mrs. Cheryl Rubish - 5th Grade
Mr. David Sanders - Intervention Specialist
Dr. Rachel Tomon - Office Staff

Everyone here at Harding Middle School is very thankful for the opportunity to educate your child(ren). It is truly an honor that we take very seriously and thank you for your constant support.
