Letter From Our New Principal...

Dear Harmony Leland Families,

I am so excited to introduce myself as the incoming Principal of Harmony Leland Elementary School! I have been an educator for 21 years and with Cobb County Schools since 2002. I am a resident of Cobb County and am proud to serve a school in the Cobb community.

In my 16 years with the district, I have held several positions which prepared me for this wonderful opportunity. I began my career as a special education teacher at Acworth Elementary School and then then moved to a fourth grade classroom. From there, I had the opportunity to serve several schools in the county as an Area Lead Teacher. I served as an Assistant Principal at Hayes Elementary, Argyle Elementary and Pine Mountain Middle School.

I am thrilled to bring my experience and passion for excellence in education to Harmony Leland. Together we will continue to provide quality education and meaningful experiences to ensure every student reaches their maximum potential. I look forward to working with you and your family this school year! 

Sincerely, 
Angela Whitehead

Title I

    Your Opinion Counts!...

Hello Harmony Leland Elementary School Families: 

Cobb County School District Title I Department appreciates the partnerships we have with our families. 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 family engagement program and activities in our schools and those provided by the District. 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 surveys are confidential and will be used to assist us with future planning for family engagement initiatives and events.

We appreciate your feedback and thank you for taking the time to complete both of the surveys.  You may complete the surveys online via one of the links below or by completing a paper copy of both surveys that will be coming home with your child the week of April 10, 2017.
