Harmony Leland Elementary School 2015-2016 Title I Parent Involvement Survey

Harmony Leland Elementary School is a Title I school, and as the parent/guardian of a child attending a Title I school you are an important part of the Title I team. Your input is vital in the planning and implementation of the parent involvement program and activities in our school. The focus of all Title I programs is to help eligible students meet the same high academic achievement standards expected of all children, regardless of their socioeconomic status and background. The following survey is confidential and will be used to assist us with future planning for parental involvement activities for the 2015-2016 events at Harmony Leland Elementary School. We appreciate your feedback and thank you for taking the time to complete this survey by March 6, 2015.

We Need Your Help!
Garden Supplies
Harmony Leland has a new outdoor classroom and garden area as well as new plantings around the school thanks to the generosity of General Electric.

In order to keep our new outdoor area and the grounds of our campus beautiful, the ASP students will be helping Mrs. Byrum to maintain our newly refreshed campus.

We need brooms (3-5), rakes (3-5), hand trowels (10+), shovels (2-3), watering cans (3-5), outdoor garbage cans (2), and long hoses (3-5).  We are asking you to look in your garages and sheds to see if you have old, spare items that you are not using anymore.

We would greatly appreciate any donations of used garden equipment.
