I would like to welcome all Harnew families to the 2018-2019 school year. The Harnew Team has spent the summer preparing for a successful school year. Harnew is “Out of this World”. We will be celebrating being; Respectful, Responsible and Safe with a space theme. Working as a team between home and school we can ensure that our students will progress and be successful. Ridgeland School District 122 believes that “Challenge + Care = Success”. It is our goal to care for your children’s social and emotional needs as well as to challenge them academically.
Over the summer, Harnew was recognized for our efforts to provide a great place to learn. The Harnew Community earned a Platinum Recognition for our implementation of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. This great honor is on display on the front of the Harnew building. The banner celebrates the great environment that staff has created and students enjoy. PBIS is a way of teaching and instilling expectations and values in our children while working in a positive manner with the community when expectations are not met. The Harnew staff and students have done a wonderful job being Respectful, Responsible and Safe.
I look forward to working with all of you this school year. “A family needs to work as a team, supporting each other’s individual aims and aspirations.”- Buzz Aldrin
Be Respectful! Be Responsible! Be Safe! Be a Hawk!
Anthony Gill, Harnew Principal
