HSS-Austin needs Bilingual and ESL Teacher. Click on this link to apply.
Dr. Sahin, of Harmony's research department has announced a new book focused on Harmony's approach to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education, is now available for purchase. The book is titled STEM Students on the Stage (SOS).
The STEM S.O.S. model is a rigorous interdisciplinary STEM teaching approach that is teacher facilitated, student-centered and directed through sequenced set of student projects. In contrast to the other PBL models in the market, this model is standards-focused and substantial part of PBL completion takes place out of classroom in a digital environment. The book provides insight into Harmony's practices. It also shares data with the education community on how this approach has impacted students.

Make the Pledge to Stop Bullying in Schools
October is National Bullying Prevention Month. During the month of October our school joined the anti-bullying movement by uniting together on October 22nd and wearing orange. Students also contributed to a unity chain that is now hanging in our cafeteria. In addition to our schoolwide efforts - the 7th grade character education class with their teacher, Ms. Hubbard, made anti-bullying pledges.
Although October is over, it is never too late to make your pledge to stand up and do the right thing. Click read more... below to check out our Facebook Album entitled "Stop Bullying" to see more of their pictures and pledges.
We are so excited to have so many people interested in volunteering on campus. In order to be a volunteer on campus we must conduct a volunteer background check on you. This is required annually - so if you filled one out last year, we need to do this again this year.
This background check is a safety measure in place to provide a safe environment for all our students. We truly value your participation and investiment in our students' education.
Parents - when your students see you here they see first hand how much you value their education! Thank you for all that you do!
