Harmony Public Schools honored with National Above and Beyond Award for service to our students and community by the National Alliance for Public Charter School program.
At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Harmony Public Schools assessed the needs of students, their families, and the community, and quickly mobilized. To date Harmony Public Schools has donated more than 3,000 face shields and served 350,000 meals to children in Texas. Above and Beyond Award was earned by schools that took the extra step to serve not only their own students, but also   the broader community—during the coronavirus pandemic, despite all the challenges that came with transitioning to online learning.

“When schools nationwide transitioned to distance learning, it became clear to us that charter schools were setting a model for the rest of the nation on what it looked like to step up and care for their communities in the face of a global pandemic,” said Nina Rees, president and CEO of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools. “There are many public schools that served their students well in the face of COVID-19, but the exceptional work of our Above and Beyond Award winners embodies compassion and caring for people outside their school community who also needed help. Their work is a model of servant leadership for the rest of the nation,” she added.

Harmony Science Academy- Lubbock third grader, Trinity Wright, created and submitted a stop motion animated film about bullying to the DISTCO Digital Story Telling Competition, sponsored by the University of Houston. Trinity learned about stop motion animation in her 3rd grade ELAR class. She worked on the plot of the story while classes met face to face, but filmed the movie on her own at home. The name of the film is the Blue Knights.
Members of the 4H Clover Kids club from Kinder through 2nd grade collaborated with the middle school garden club students and l earned about the science of fermentation, pickling, and food preservation. They sampled pickled cucumbers, celery, cauliflower, and jalapenos.  Our goal is to continue to grow this club on our campus, have elected officers, and work and learn in the garden learning center about horticulture and food preparation through the framework of the Texas Agrilife 4H program.
The 4H Clover Kids Club pledge:  
I pledge my head to clearer thinking,
My heart to greater loyalty,
My hands to larger service,
and my health to better living,
for my club, my community, my country, and my world.
