Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year

A Note from Ms. Sickler

The 2022-2023 school year is right around the corner. I’m excited to be welcoming so many students to Harvest this year. I will use this blog to keep you updated with all the Harvest Happenings!  Please be on the lookout for weekly updates each Sunday at 3:00pm. The cadence of this blog is consistent, with the following sections:

  • Note from Ms. Sickler
  • Save the Dates
  • PTA Points
  • District Notes
  • Quick Links
  • Sweet Tweets of the Week
  • Did You Know?
  • Ms. Sickler Reads

I hope to keep you informed on the most pertinent information about what is happening here at Harvest to keep all students safe, joyful, and able to thrive.  If that is not the case for your child, please reach out to me directly so we can meet.  I can be reached at sicklere@salineschools.org.

Our Harvest Handbook has a wealth of information.  Throughout the next few months, I will be pulling out pieces of the handbook to highlight in this blog. 

I am grateful for the important work to walk alongside families as students take some of the very first steps in their educational journeys.
