Principal's Message for the week of 12.04.17

Announcements for the Week of December 4, 2017

Good Morning, this is Jessica Emory the Principal of Harkers Island with the announcements for the coming weeks. This announcement can also be located on the school website on the main page.


Week Events:

For the week of December 4th:

  • Please be patient with us this week as we work to move into the new office space.
  • Wednesday – Friday the students will have the opportunity to shop in the PTO hosted Santa Shop.  The shop contains small, non-pricey items that students can purchase for family and friends for the holiday.  Students will be able to shop on either Wednesday or Thursday in their special with Ms. Kari and can return to the shop on Friday in case they saw something they want to purchase but were unable to earlier in the week.


For the week of December 11th:

  • Tuesday the 12th at 1:30 is the Harkers Island Holiday performance.  Family and friends are invited to come.  Santa and Mrs. Claus will be here too.
  • Friday the 15th is a half day with the student day ending at 12:00. 


Decoy Weekend

It’s Decoy Festival Weekend.  Come on by the school and join in the festivities.  Doors open at 8:30.


Collecting Clothing

We are collecting new packages of underwear for our kindergarten age and first grade age students as well as gently used shirts and shorts/pants.  These items will be used for emergency purposes when students have an accident and we cannot get ahold of a parent.  We are also collecting baby wipes.  Please drop off donations in the main office.

Holiday Break:

Students are on Holiday Break from the 18th of December through January 1st.  Students return to school on January 2nd.  The school will be closed during this time and workers will be working on the old office space.
