Time for Chromebooks!! Library News!!

It is time to start getting the Chromebooks handed out. All students will need to fill out the Chromebook paperwork, which is available in the office, with parent and student signatures. All fees for insurance, any fees from last year, due to missing keys and chargers, must be paid in full before student receives their device.

If you are new to Harmony this year, you must attend a Parent Orientation to complete the process for your child to receive the Chromebook. We are having our next Parent Orientation this Thursday, August 28, at 5:30 p.m. in the small Cafeteria.

We do have chromebook covers for sale in the front office for $10, if you wish to purchase one. It fits the Chromebook perfectly and has a zipped pocket for flash drives, etc.

Library News

Please make sure you have filled out a Library Permission Slip for each child you have attending Harmony. This allows students to check out books when the library opens and use the library computers. Let's have a book-filled year!


IMPORTANT MATH PROGRAM INFORMATION

WHAT IS ALEKS??

Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics she is most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, ALEKS periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained. ALEKS courses are very complete in their topic coverage and ALEKS avoids multiple-choice questions. A student who shows a high level of mastery of an ALEKS course will be successful in the actual course she is taking.

ALEKS also provides the advantages of one-on-one instruction, 24/7, from virtually any Web-based computer for a fraction of the cost of a human tutor.

Please see Attached information for Harmony's Porgram read more . . .

If your child has not received the required immunizations, please take your child to their Physician, San Antonio Metropolitan Health Department or a medical facility of your choice to receive the required immunizations. Your child will not be allowed into school for the 2014-2015 school year until we have received proof of immunizations.

All entering seventh graders must have the following immunizations before entering the 7th grade.
