Over the last six weeks, fifth grade students have been learning the fifty states, capitals, and abbreviations. As a culminating activity, students in each class competed against one another on an interactive game. The goal was to see who could identify all fifty states with the most accuracy in the least amount of time. The winners from each classroom then competed against one another. The overall winner, Gretchen Mundy, correctly identified all 50 states in 62 seconds! Brayden White was the runner up. Nice job, fifth graders!
We are switching our current Harmony Parent/Student portal to the New Harmony 3 Family Access and all parents should have received an email with the link to log in, as well as instructions for the setup. Everyone needs to register with the new credentials, as we will eventually be turning off the current version of the program.
One of the advantages of the new Harmony 3 Family Access is that it allows parents and students to have separate accounts with their own user names and passwords to access information as well as set notifications. Because the accounts are separate, students will not be able to make changes to any of the settings made by parents.
In the new program you will be able add all your students into one login and to see the following:
The new site link is:
The link is also posted on the corporation as well as each building website.
We hope you enjoy the features of the new site.
