Week of November 23rd – November 27th

A Note From Ms. Sickler

  • During this time of Thanksgiving, I want to share my gratitude and thank you for being such an important part of our children’s lives.  We have asked you to take on roles in your children’s education in ways unlike any other year.  We are so very grateful for your patience, flexibility, and grace as we all navigate these trying times.  On behalf of the entire Harvest staff, I would like to thank you for your continued support and wish you all a safe and happy holiday.
  • In conjunction with our current model of 100% remote learning, our Saline Elementary staff has put together a Learning at Home Toolkit.  We were able to use tips and strategies from teachers and families who have been in this learning model all trimester to create the toolkit.

Original Works – Deadline Extended!

Due to the interest level and volume of orders currently being submitted through the Original Works At Home program that Harvest Elementary School and schools around the country are running, we plan to keep the program open for ordering indefinitely. We will continue to process and ship orders to the homes as they arrive throughout the season. This approach will provide families who have not yet placed orders the chance to order.

Directions for ordering here:  How to Order from Original Works.

Be sure to enter our school code: HARV (it is case sensitive) so we get the credit for it.  Money raised from this goes directly to classroom teachers to buy things like books that can be used in the classroom.

Thank you for supporting our school in this way!
