Dodgeball is coming.
December is DODGEBALL time for Harmon!!
Each year, Harmon works together to raise money for our Harmon Hearts campaign. During this time, we raise money to go towards the Violet Township Fire Department Toy Drive. This toy drive directly benefits families not only in our community, but also in our school. One of the ways that we raise money is to PLAY DODGEBALL!! Packages start at $5.00 and go up to $20.00. The $20 package includes a custom Harmon Dodgeball shirt AND a game of dodgeball against PARENTS, STAFF, and FIREFIGHTERS!
Yes, you read that right. PARENTS may come in to play dodgeball against their child. Now is your chance for payback for your kid not unloading the dishwasher when you asked the first three times.
More information will be sent home in the next 2 weeks about packages, shirts and dodgeball games.
Mark your calendars for December 15th- that is when the games shall be played.
This month's classroom lesson will be on Empathy and Perspective. We will discuss the following topics: disagreeing respectfully, active listening, different perceptions, etc. The 5th-grade students will also be participating in the digital citizenship lesson, "What is Cyberbullying?" This lesson will happen in your child's technology class during the week of Nov 6-10.
If your family is in need of holiday assistance, please email me at email@example.com. Requests for assistance with a Thanksgiving Meal are due by 11/9/23. The holiday assistance request is due by 11/20/23.
