Dear Harrison Families,
Did you know a group of bobcats is called a pounce? Our pounce is excited to welcome your Bobcat and family to Harrison Elementary School. We’ll work together to fill this year with joy, pride, and growth! Whether you’ve been in our pounce for many years, or are joining us for the first time this year, we are committed to ensuring your Bobcat feels seen, heard, loved and meets their academic goals. This collective vision to reach and teach ALL students is captured in our mission statement:
Harrison is a place where families, students, and staff collaborate to create a safe, welcoming environment. We strive to provide a high quality, comprehensive education. All are empowered to become self-advocating, confident, capable community members.
Our dedicated staff at Harrison is eager to partner with you to create a meaningful year for your child. We do this best by checking in and communicating frequently. Please consider participating in our Remind app communication, following our FaceBook page, and signing up for emergency messages through Flash Alert. With a return to a mostly normal year, we are most excited about reigniting a collaborative community within and amongst our students and families. You are what makes Harrison!
We would like to extend an open invitation to all Harrison families to become involved in our pounce. Please consider participating by exploring our many opportunities for involvement available through our Parent Club, the office, your child’s teacher, or by accessing our school website. Our school website (https://www.slane.k12.or.us/Harrison) hosts a current school events calendar, volunteer applications, and other great resources.
It is both a tremendous responsibility and a tremendous honor to lead during this moment in time. Thank you for trusting your most precious child to our school community. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.
With warmest regards,
Principal Massie & Assistant Principal Sadiq
