As you know, with the funding from Race to The Top District grant, Harmony Public Schools started a 1:1 technology initiative in the beginning of this school year, and handed a chrome book device to every single student and core subject teacher in grades 6 thru 12. All Harmony educators and leaders see this initiative as a tremendous opportunity to personalize student learning and radically improve achievement. With the right approach, leveraging technology can yield promising academic results and boost performance both for students and teachers. In an effort to assess effectiveness and improve our technology initiative, Harmony Public Schools intends to conduct a scholarly research on how technology integration into classrooms impacts students, teachers, and parents. This research will help school and district leaders at Harmony to make sound research-based judgments about future design and refinement of our technology programs. It will also give us a chance to get input from our most valued stakeholders. The researcher will keep participant identities confidential and will not release it to any Harmony employees, nor will he link any identities to survey inputs. We are excited about this research opportunity and would definitely like to see all our teachers, parents, and students participate as much as possible. Thank you for your continued support! read more . . .

Our School has started to use ROCKET MATH in grades 1-5 to fully address their math fact learning needs.
This is a paper based memorization tool that gives a one minute test to the students every day until they master all the facts about the four operations, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Teachers send these tests home for you and your child to practice together. Please take your time to practice with your child. Researches say there is a great correlation between knowing the math facts and being successful at Algebra. Your support is appreciated.
