Week of October 28th – November 1st

A Note from Ms. Sickler

Please read the following letter from Original Works Coordinator, Amanda Ledy.

Dear Harvest Families,
As parent coordinator, I’m excited for another great year of our Original Works fundraiser! This art-based program allows you to order customized products displaying your child’s art, all while making money for our school! The company offers everything from t-shirts to note cards and in between.

Your child created artwork, which has been uploaded to an online gallery for our school. For security purposes, only families of Harvest can view the artwork and student names are withheld. A custom letter is being sent home with each student. Please keep and reference the codes and instructions on your letter. These student codes are unique to each child and grant access to the gallery and allow you to place your order. Orders must be placed by November 6, 2019! 

Profits for this program go directly to your child’s teacher and the more participation we have the higher the profit. The teachers have appreciated the funds they have received from this fundraiser, purchasing furniture, books and needed classroom supplies. 
All orders are made online and will be shipped to the school directly. Orders can be sent home with students or picked up by parents before winter break. At that time, your child’s original artwork from the gallery will also be sent home. 
Please email me with any questions or comments regarding this program.  Have fun seeing your artist’s work and ordering some keepsakes! 

Amanda Ledy

Did You Know?

Did you know that Thursday is our first Early Release Day?

What is the difference between an Early Release Day and a typical Half Day?

  • Early Release Days occur 5 times a year.
  • On Early Release Days, students dismiss approximately 2.5 hours before the normal end of the school day (Half Days dismiss approximately 3.5 hours before the normal end of the school day).
  • On Early Release Days, students eat lunch at the school (on typical half days they do not).
  • On Early Release Days, low-cost childcare services are provided for K-8 students for the families that would like this service. However, you needed to sign-up for this service by the end of September.
  • On Early Release Days, teachers have Professional Development in the afternoon to work on improving the teaching and learning for all students.
