Principal's Message


Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! There is no comparison to the energy and excitement the start of the school year brings. Yesterday we welcomed approximately 1200 middle schoolers to Harvest Park.

I am excited to partner with the PTSA again this year for Coffee with the Principal. As we begin to plan our Coffees, I’d like to make sure that I am addressing topics pertinent to you, the middle school parent. Please take a moment and complete this survey and tell me the topics you’d be interested in learning more about and discussing with others. Feel free to add other topics as well. 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our staff if you have any questions or concerns. If you have specific concerns or questions about your student’s class or progress, please contact the teacher directly. In addition to our teachers, we have two Vice Principals and three counselors who work directly with our students. In an effort to create relationships with our families, our admin and counselors work with students based on the student’s last name. Here is the breakdown:

Vice Principals                                           Counselors

Caroline Fields (Last Names A-K)               Monica Wharton (Last Names A-I)

Jack Parsons (Last Names L-Z)                   Katie Poynter (Last Names J-M)

                                                                     Jenn Simpson (Last Names N-Z)


Here are some important upcoming dates/events:

Thursday, August 17th – School Photos in P.E. (forms went home yesterday)

Monday, August 21st – Attendance Automated Messages Begin (Families will now be notified in the evening by an automated dialing system of any unexcused absences from that day.) 

Thursday, August 24th – Back to School Night

  • 6:00pm New to HP Parent Information in MPR
  • 6:30pm BTSN begins (information will be coming up with your student)

We are looking forward to a wonderful school year! To stay up-to-date with the latest happenings at HPMS, follow us on Instagram @ Harvest_Park_Patriots and like us on Facebook. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions - we are here to support you and your students.
