National Bullying Prevention Month

posted Oct 18, 2018, 6:55 PM by Megan Bentley

October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and during classroom guidance we have been talking about kindness, respect, empathy and ways to be a good friend. To piggyback several of the lessons shared through classroom guidance this month, Harrowgate Elementary will be participating in Unity Day on October 24th. Unity Day is a way for a school to unite and send a powerful visual message that bullying is never acceptable behavior. Many schools in Chesterfield County and beyond participate in this activity as a way to show solidarity, and take a stand against bullying. If your student has something ORANGE, please encourage him/her to wear it on October 24th to show that at Harrowgate, we stand for kindness, acceptance and inclusion of all students. Thank you for your support!

Top Ten Reading October

posted Oct 4, 2018, 5:07 PM by Megan Bentley

In an effort to be more interactive with reading, the 40 Book Challenge has been replaced by Top Ten Reading. This week, students will be bringing home a yellow "Fall for Reading" sheet for October. Each month, students will get a sheet with ten reading-based activities to complete by the due date on the sheet. One side is for grades K and 1, the other side is for grades 2-5. There will be 7 sheets this year, and if your child returns 6 or 7 sheets, he/she can celebrate at our Top Ten Celebration in June! If you have any questions, please email me at carrie_dupuy@ccpsnet.net.

Hello Harrowgate Family!
Students are working so hard to finish their artwork for the Square One Fundraiser!!

Soon I will be submitting their artwork to Square One, and in return I will receive pamphlets featuring each individual student’s artwork on a variety of different items!! In addition to the pamphlet, all students will receive a FREE full sheet of stickers featuring their artwork.

Please take a look at these items that are for sale!!!! We are counting on our Harrowgate families to support us, for this fundraiser enables us to raise money for our Art program here at Harrowgate!! All of the profits will be spent on much needed art materials and supplies that our students will need throughout the school year to make their masterpieces!

Once Square One pamphlets arrive, students will have only a couple of weeks to place an order so please do not wait!! Square One offers a wide variety of items that are perfect for gifts and keepsakes!!

THE DEADLINE FOR ALL SQUARE ONE ORDERS IS NOVEMBER 20TH!! I will send out more reminders as we approach this deadline.

Thank you!!!!
