Have you heard your students talk about mindfulness? Harvest Ridge teachers have committed to allowing our students the opportunity to breathe, to calm, and to arrive every morning. From 8:20-8:40, all classrooms are practicing this technique to help our students get ready for their day. We would ask all parents to please respect this quiet time, and refrain from entering classrooms until after 8:40. If your student is arriving at school after the 8:15 whistle, please have them check in at the office first. Then they may walk around to the back and slip quietly into the classroom.

Lost and Found: Can you believe we've already started collecting? Labeling all of your students coats, water bottles, etc. can help us return them to their owners. We donated a number of items at the end of the year, and would prefer to return them to you!
Tablecloths Needed: Have any at home that you no longer use? Our selection has dwindled as items go home to be washed and don't make it back. We appreciate your donations, and so does our culinary crew!
