SUMMER SCHOOL INFO

Dear Parents,

Harmony Science Academy West Houston will be hosting summer school for students in grades K thru 8th grade who need additional instruction in some courses. The four-week program, offered June 3rd to June 27th, will focus on Reading and Math skills and concepts.

Harmony Public Schools requires students who score below the 50th percentile in MAP Reading and/or Math; ESL students; students who fail Reading and/or Math course(s); students who do not pass STAAR Reading and/or Math; and students who are recommended by their teacher(s) to attend summer school. The program may also include students who are in jeopardy of failing because these students may have a “summer slide” and forget some of what they have learned during summer. Summer school will be an opportune time to intervene and to provide the extra support students need to meet new learning expectations awaiting them.

Summary of Criteria K-8
K-2ND • ESL Students
• Students with low academic achievement in classroom performance (Teacher Recommendation)
• Students scoring below 50th percentile in MAP Reading

3rd-8th
• ESL Students
• Students with low academic achievement in classroom performance (Teacher Recommendation)
• Students who failed ELA and/or Math
• Students who failed STAAR Reading and/or Math
• Students scoring below 50th percentile in MAP Reading and/or Math

High School
Failing high school students can attend summer schools in their zoned public schools and/or take an online course via Advanced Academy (contact the High School Counselor for more information).
Rosters and the program location(s) will be finalized in May after the STAAR test scores are received and grades are published.

Sincerely,
Recep Yilmaz
Campus Principal

SPRING SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR

Hi wonderful HSA-WH Parents!

It's almost time for our spring book fair am I am currently in the process of lining up volunteers to work the various shifts to make it as much of a success as our fall book fair was. As some of you may know, the book fair will run from Monday, May 5th through Friday May 9th. Right now, I am filling slots for the "regular shifts" which will be Monday through Thursday from 8-10am, 10-12pm, 12-2pm and 2-4pm.

If you are interested in helping, please let me know the dates and times that you are available to help and email me at barnes_elizabeth@hotmail.com. It's a wonderful idea to volunteer during your student's library time so that you are able to help them and their friends shop at the book fair!

Thanks ahead of time to all of you who are able to lend a hand!!


CHROMEBOOK STUDY

As you know, with the funding from Race to The Top District grant, Harmony Public Schools started a 1:1 technology initiative in the beginning of this school year, and handed a chrome book device to every single student and core subject teacher in grades 6 thru 12. All Harmony educators and leaders see this initiative as a tremendous opportunity to personalize student learning and radically improve achievement. With the right approach, leveraging technology can yield promising academic results and boost performance both for students and teachers. In an effort to assess effectiveness and improve our technology initiative, Harmony Public Schools intends to conduct a scholarly research on how technology integration into classrooms impacts students, teachers, and parents. This research will help school and district leaders at Harmony to make sound research-based judgments about future design and refinement of our technology programs. It will also give us a chance to get input from our most valued stakeholders. The researcher will keep participant identities confidential and will not release it to any Harmony employees, nor will he link any identities to survey inputs. We are excited about this research opportunity and would definitely like to see all our teachers, parents, and students participate as much as possible. Thank you for your continued support!
