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.
