HARRY'S COLOR BLAST A SUCCESS!

A THANK YOU FROM PRINCIPAL JESSICA GRANDT

I want to extend a; heartfelt thank you to all the friends and families of Harrison Elementary who helped make our first ever color run such a huge success! We far surpassed our goal and raised almost $ 13,000! That would not have been possible without you! And thanks to Sheri Krogman, who organized the event, and all of the parents and staff who volunteered the day of the color run. It was such a perfect night!

  • Students need a medical excuse from a doctor to stay inside for recess or to sit out from P.E. class
  • For safety reasons, parents and guardians cannot bring in food to share at lunch with anyone other than their own child
  • Birthday invitations cannot be passed out at school unless the entire class is being invited to the party
  • By Wisconsin State Statute, parents can only excuse their child for a total of 10 school days for the entire year! Absences after that are considered unexcused.
