Harlem Elementary School

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Welcome to the Harlem Elementary School web page. I am proud of our dedicated, experienced staff and enthusiastic student learners!

As demands and complexities of teaching children increases, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to ensure that our children reach their full potential. It is our belief that all of us- the school and community-must work together in an extended family environment to promote success for all students.

We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible. At Harlem Elementary, we utilize the MBI principles and practices to teach and reinforce positive academic and behavioral expectations. R.O.A.R tickets are awarded to those students who are caught demonstrating the R.O.A.R. Guidelines, which can then be turned in for a weekly prize drawing.

It is our desire to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school. Up-to-date and additional information will be sent to you through the monthly newsletter and will appear on our school web page. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. We look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family.

Michelene Edwards – K – 6th Grade Teacher

How long have you worked at Harlem Elementary?  I  have been working here since 2005, so a total of 12 years.

What did you do before you worked here?  Before Harlem, I worked at the Rockport Colony/Pendroy School District, teaching 1st through 4th grade. I taught there for three years and it was an amazing experience for a brand new teacher. Before that I was at Northstar Dodge in Havre working as a Title Clerk.

What is your favorite thing about working at HES?  My favorite thing about working at HES is the kids. I love coming into the building in the morning seeing their faces.

If you could vacation anywhere in the world, where would you go & why?  I would love to go to Europe and travel; like on The Amazing Race, where you could go to many different places and see lots of different things.

Favorite Food: Cheese and Mexican Food          Favorite Color:  Red       

Favorite Music: There are many different genre’s that I like        Favorite Movie: Lemonade Mouth a Disney Original. Mara and I watch it ALL the TIME!

Tell us something about yourself that we may not know: I love the theatre. I have really found a love for acting. I have been in two different MAT shows and I was in one for the Halloween season called Horror Movie 101: Failing Can be Deadly. I hope to try out for a few more plays this year as well.
