Harlan Husky Families,
I can’t believe that we just wrapped up the 4th week of school and it is already fall! It always seems to go by so fast. There is a lot of deep learning taking place and the kids seem to have all of their classroom routines down pat.
Thank you to all of the parents who helped with popcorn sales and Picture Day this week. We appreciate all that our volunteers do for us!
