Hello Harbor View Vikings,

Welcome to another amazing school year to “Make Learning Our Adventure!

We are so grateful to have such an amazing community that comes together to do what is in the best interest of our kids! This year is a big year as we continue to implement two new programs in language arts and mathematics as well as Thinking Maps as part of our writing program, Write from the Beginning and Beyond! What excites me the most about a new school year is the opportunity...there is so much potential in each and every one of our students. With an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, arts and science (STEAM) coupled with a stellar reading, writing, history, PE, and mathematics program, there is no limit to what our students can achieve! We will continue to emphasize the character of our community by being BRAVE: Bold, Respectful, Accountable, Visionary, and Empathetic. I challenge our students, staff, and parents to find ways to better our community and each other. I am also extremely excited about the implementation of a plan five years in the making. Through the generosity of our parent community with their time and resources, we will be unveiling our newly refurbished INNOVATION LAB! We will also be utilizing Chromebooks in addition to our other technological offerings to enhance student learning and our teachers instructional practices. Harbor View will continue to find ways for hi-tech, lo-tech, and no-tech opportunities for students to develop the 21st century skills we need them to have to be productive and high-achieving citizens: communication, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration! I am so excited that we are bringing on so many new members to our Harbor View staff. I am confident that they will all make lasting impressions on our #HVEPride community! You will see a renewed focus on project based learning as it is a vital component of our children’s education because it allows our students to hone their skills and be even more amazing! Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! It is my hope that you will help us showcase the #HVEPride as we Make Learning Our Adventure!
