Dear HSS-H Parents and Families,
Please join us on Wednesday, January 23rd for STAAR Parent Night from 5:00 – 6:00. You will get a chance to learn more about the STAAR tests, and meet with your child’s teachers to discuss what you can do to help your child be successful. We can’t wait to see you there!
You’re invited to take our website survey to find out if our website is meeting your needs. At Harmony, we want to be “in touch” with our community, so opening a feedback mechanism is a great way for you to participate in making decisions about the future of our work.
In this case, we need your valuable opinions on the design and overall usability of the site for our upcoming redesign.
It’s easy to take part in the survey and should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete!
All we ask is that you be open and honest and give us your feelings on the website.
You don’t have to be a graphic designer, communications specialist, or even a web-developer to give feedback, all we want is your opinion as a website user – this will help us improve our communications and give us a chance to hear your ideas too!

In accordance with the Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted/Talented students, Harmony Public Schools will begin taking referrals for all interested students in grades K-12 for gifted and talented screening.
Anyone interested in the educational welfare of these students may nominate them for assessment. Students in grades 2 & up who were tested in the Fall 2018 are not eligible to test in Spring 2019. Referral forms are available at the front office and on the school’s web site.
The referral forms must be returned to the front office by Friday, February 8, 2019.
The 2019 Spring GT testing window is February 11, 2019 – March 29, 2019.
For more information about the screening and identification process, parents may contact the school’s GT Coach/teacher.

Dear HSS-H Parents and Families,
The end of the second quarter and the second district assessments are coming soon! Testing will be from Monday December 10th – Friday December 14th. These assessments are given as mock STAAR tests in tested grades and subjects. This gives students time to practice important testing procedures, and gives your teachers valuable data to better prepare your child for the real STAAR tests later in the year. Here are some ways to help your child do their best:
- Set goals with your child about their scores and discuss the importance of doing their best.
- Discuss proper testing procedures and behavior.
- Eat a healthy filling breakfast the day of testing, and get plenty of rest the night before.
- Arrive at school on time @ 7:50, testing will start promptly at 8:00 each day.
The testing schedule is shown below. Thank you for all of your cooperation and hard work! Please reach out to your teachers if you have any questions.
