A Message from Dr. Susan Kick
Harper is an elementary building that serves children from
Kindergarten through fourth grade. Harper enrolls approximately 425
students. Harper provides students with a warm, nurturing environment
that focuses on the social, emotional, and academic development of all
children. The majority of our students have attended at least two years
of preschool before beginning kindergarten, and our students
consistently score well on national, state, and local assessments.
Within the building we offer a team of related arts teachers (PE,
library, music, art, technology, Spanish), as well as learning behavior specialists, speech pathologists, a school psychologist, an occupational therapist,
a differentiation support teacher, reading teachers,
and English language teacher, and more. These positions are in place to ensure
that we are meeting the needs of all the children in the building.
Our PTO is an integral component of the building. Through countless
hours of volunteer work and fund raisers, the PTO helps support a
variety of programs and activities such as Book Fairs, Great Books,
Student Council, Yearbook, Chorus, Civics and Safety, and Environmental
Awareness. Additionally, the PTO funds and organizes the Student
Enrichment Program which supports the curriculum by giving students the
opportunity for field trips, guest speakers, and fine arts performances.
We, as a school, are very thankful for the efforts of our PTO. These
enrichment activities have a significant impact on the educational
experience of Harper children.
Our MISSION STATEMENT is as follows:
Harper School is dedicated to creating a climate that meets the needs of all children
and helps them to become successful and responsible lifelong learners.
