Bell Schedule Information:

Harvest Park Staff is exploring the possibility of changing the bell schedule to provide tiered levels of support and extensions to all students within the school day. This includes a 30 minute FLEX period on Tuesdays and Thursdays that will allow teachers to provide reteaching, extension, and enrichment opportunities to all students. Please come to learn more about this exciting work. Please note that this will not change the beginning or end time of the school day.

 

Course Selection:

Over the next few weeks, Harvest Park counselors will be visiting 6th and 7th grade classrooms to present scheduling information for next year.  On these nights, counselors will present information and answer questions about next year’s scheduling, choosing electives and the online scheduling process for students.

 

We look forward to seeing you on the 13th or 15th. For those of you who cannot attend, the presentations will be posted on our website. In addition, there will be another presentation regarding the bell schedule before Open House in May. More information will be sent out before that evening.
