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!

National History Bee Success!
On Wednesday, February 19th, Adithya Sreenivasan, Nickolas Minford, James Nguyen, and Tiffany Lourdraj competed in the Regional History Bee here at HSS. All four students competed with other middle-schoolers from all over Central Texas. Our kiddos did amazing, answering tough questions and outscoring many of their opponents.
We are both incredibly pleased and proud to announce that, due to Adithya's advancement to the championship round, and Tiffany's high scores in the preliminary round, both students have qualified to advance to the Nationals Level of the National History Bee. They will be competing with students from all over America for the title of National History Bee Champion the weekend of June 6th-8th in Atlanta, Georgia.
