Staff is back learning and preparing for our students to join us next Monday! We launched with breakfast, then jumped into our focus on purposeful student engagement in support of students' future stories.#LifelongLearners #HornetNation

Schools of choice applications for 2023-2024 school year Under the Schools of Choice legislation (Section 105 and Section 105(c) of the School Aid Act), kindergarten through twelfth grade students residing within Clare Gladwin Regional Education Service District (RESD) and contiguous intermediate school districts, may apply to Harrison Community Schools for enrollment for the first semester of the 2023-2024 school year. Application may be made for grades 6-12 with unlimited openings. Applications for grades K, 4, and 5 are being accepted with limitations, applications for grades 1, 2, and 3 are not being accepted at this time. Applications for limited grades will be accepted from August 5, 2023 through August 19, 2023 and applicants will be notified of acceptance by August 20, 2023. Applications for unlimited grades will be accepted until the beginning of the school year. Enrollment must be made to the school district no later than the end of the first week of school. Transportation for these students is the responsibility of the parents or guardians.
A new "All the Buzz" is out, with important back-to-school information. #HornetNation #HornetPride https://www.smore.com/f91sx
As we prepare to welcome our students back on August 21, we have a few more updates for you: -- Grade-level teacher assignments for Larson will be shared as soon as possible. We are awaiting a Skyward "roll-up" with 2023-2024 information, and we do not control that timing. Once that does occur, emails will be sent to all those for whom we have an email address, and letters will be printed and mailed for all students. We believe you may also be able to see the assignment in Skyward itself once the system is updated. We cannot post lists due to federal and state privacy laws. -- Class schedules for grades 6-12 should be available at August 16 open houses; again, printing those are dependent on the Skyward roll-up. -- Any specific school supply lists will be posted on each school's FaceBook page and/or shared at open house. As always, we will supply any item a student does not possess. Keep checking this space for additional updates.
Thank you to Shelly Spayd (CGRESD) for leading learning with many of our Larson teachers this week. Both new and seasoned teachers are growing their craft around scaffolding skills for our young mathematicians. #HornetPride

**UPDATED** We are pleased to announce a new transportation partner - Auxilio Services. Already providing transportation to nearby districts, Auxilio is working with the bus staff to make a seamless transition, and on August 21, our families will see many brand new buses with "Harrison Community Schools" on their sides. If your child is a new enrollee in Harrison Community Schools, or was a student last year but did not ride the bus, please print and complete the attached form below to register for transportation in the 2023-2024 school year. IF YOUR CHILD RODE THE BUS LAST YEAR, AND THERE ARE NO CHANGES you do not need to fill out a form. Registration forms are available and will be accepted in our central office (old Hillside) through Tuesday, August 1, and then also in our school offices beginning on August 2. They may be dropped off in person or faxed. Forms DO NOT go to the bus garage. Our fax number is 989.539.7491. https://5il.co/207gx

As families may be pulling together clothes for the first day of school and beyond, here is a graphic to help understand our new dress code (previously shared). It displays the MINIMUMS for tops and bottoms.
Harrison 2023 graduate Malea Gardner played in the MHSSCA All Star Game on Wednesday, July 19th. She had a single in the game. She is the third Hornet to play in this all star game (Hillary Brewer in 2012 and Allison Lipovsky in 2015). Way to represent Hornet Nation Malea!!
