All the classroom teams competed with other classroom teams during the Chamionship and all were well prepared and showed good sportsmanship. Thanks to all teams and teachers!
In honor of Dr. Seuss and Read Across America, students are invited to participate in Read Across Harrison by joining the Dr. Seuss Reading Challenge. The Contest starts on Monday, March 3 and lasts until Tuesday, March 11.
Read as many Dr. Seuss books and Dr. Seuss sponsored books as you can for one week. Write them all down on the reading log provided by your teachers. On Tuesday, March 11, turn your Dr. Seuss Reading Logs in to the Media Center.
If you are the student who has read the most Dr. Seuss books in your whole grade level, you can win one of the Dr. Seuss books or stuffed animals featured in the display case in the Media Center. Oh, and don’t forget to get an adult to sign your Reading logs! Good luck and enjoy reading!

Information will be provided so that parents can go online to activate their PowerSchool Parent Portal account, once the parent verification process has been completed.
As a reminder, go to the "Parents" tab on the website, then go down to "Volunteers Needed" to fill out the application. Remember that the process is now entirely online. If you do not have access to a computer, please contact the school so that we can assist you in completing the process.
If you anticipate chaperoning a field trip for your child at any point this year, please complete the application as soon as possibile, as the turnaround time for approval of some applications may take longer than others. This is something that neither the school nor the district have control over. As soon as you receive the approval email, please let you child's teacher know.

We anticipate that students at stops other than Briar Chapel will be delayed approximately 20 minutes, but please know that drop-off times may vary depending on traffic, number of passengers, etc. Estimated stop times were sent home with students yesterday. We know that some families with students at both Harrison and Pollard will be impacted, but please know we're working on a long-term solution in that regard.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but thank you for bearing with us as we work with the Chatham County Schools Transportation Department to smooth out our routing issues. If you have any questions, please contact me at the school at extension 35232 or via email at email@example.com.
As is the case with many schools across the district, we are very limited in terms of our substitute driver options. If you are aware of anyone in the community who may be interested in part-time employment as a substitute driver, please encourage them to visit the vacancy listing on the district website or contact John Heath, assistant principal.
