As you are reading this newsletter, Spring Break is approaching quickly, and from that point until the end of this school year there are only slightly over eight weeks of school remaining. This year certainly has gone by quickly; however, there still are many activities left on the calendar at Harrison High School. Our spring athletic seasons will be in full swing in April and May, our bands and choirs will have their final concerts of the year in early May, our seniors (and parents) are busy making final plans for graduation, and we will recognize our academic scholarships and awards with our annual program on Monday, May 13th, at 7:00 PM. Many of our individual classes, programs, clubs, and groups also have special events to commemorate the end of the school year as well.

With the many activities, both at school and in the community, and the improvement (hopefully) in the weather, everyone wants to be outside. This is the time of year when completing homework and projects and studying for quizzes and tests becomes difficult as practices run into the evenings and other more "fun" activities attract our attentions. Please assist us at school by insuring that your student is keeping up with the homework and other assignments at Harrison that go into these final weeks. A strong finish over the next eight weeks will help lead to a very enjoyable and restful summer break. Thank you for all of your support!
