Week of February 7th – February 11th

A Note from Ms. Sickler

How did Black History Month come to be? | Explore | Awesome Activities & Fun Facts | CBC KidsAs we enter February and recognize Black History Month, there are a number of occasions throughout the month to learn about ourselves and others, to grow intellectually, and to uplift.

I hope that you are able to take advantage of the wonderful opportunities offered in the Ann Arbor and Detroit areas to engage in activities centered around Black History Month.

We would also like to wish our Harvest community members celebrating the Lunar New Year a Happy New Year on February 1st!

If your student is interested in participating, please complete the registration form either electronically via this form or by returning the paper tear-off section to your teacher or the office by Tuesday, February 22nd. 

The goal of the science fair is to encourage students to explore and enjoy science. The science fair is completely optional.

Did you know that coaches are needed for 2022 GIrls on the Run!

Girls on the Run is excited to bring this program to Harvest for another great year.  The program has been modified to accommodate COVID recommendations for 2022.  We are a few volunteer coaches (we have some great high schoolers ready to help you)!  You don’t have to be a runnerjust enthusiastic about building confidence in our 3rd-5th grade girls!  Girls on the Run provides all of the materials and training – we just need a few energetic people to deliver this great program.

Girls on the Run is an 8 week program for girls in grades 3rd through 5th that combines training for a non-competitive 5k event with a dynamic life skills curriculum. Twice weekly lessons and interactive activities are led by volunteer coaches who create a positive and safe environment for girls to learn about themselves, connect with their peers and contribute to the community. The program culminates in a non-competitive, celebratory 5k event (local to each site for 2021) that allows the girls a chance to shine with an overwhelming sense of accomplishment!   Participant registration will open February 22.

No prior experience necessary- we provide the training, supplies, support and inspiration! Contact info@girlsontherunsemi.org or site liaison Joyce Mueller (joycemueller@gmail.com / 734-972-7389) for more information.
