Dear Parent:
The following information was sent out via e-mail from the Harmony Public Schools central office. If you did not receive the e-mail about the parent/family communication survey, please read below.
One of the factors that contributes to the success of Harmony Public Schools is our relationship with our students' parents. While we may instruct your children during the day, their intellectual, social and emotional growth continues under your roof. As such, you play a critical role in their success here at Harmony. In an effort build stronger parent/school partnerships, we encourage you to complete this brief survey to help us gauge the effectiveness of our campus' level of communication with you. We ask that if you have children that attend more than one of our campuses, please complete a survey for each campus they attend. Please complete the survey no later than October 28, 2014.
For the English survey, click below:
• Parent-School communications survey

Estimado padre de familia:

Como tal, usted juega un papel critico en el exito de su hijo aqui en Harmony.
