Parent Invitation 2019

In accordance with the Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted/Talented students, Harmony Public Schools will begin taking referrals for kindergarten and newly-enrolled students in grades 1-12 for gifted and talented screening. Anyone interested in the educational welfare of these students may refer them for assessment.

Referral forms are available at the front office and on the school’s web site. Here are the links for the forms;

Parent GT Referral Form in English

Parent GT Referral Form in Spanish

The forms must be returned to the front office by Friday, September 27, 2019. G/T assessment period will take place in October.

For more information about the screening and identification process, parents may contact the school’s GT coordinator or GT coach/teacher.

 

“We are very happy to continue to reward our staff for their dedication to excellence,” said Fatih Ay, CEO of Harmony Public Schools. “Every year our 34,000 plus students consistently exceed state education standards. Our teacher’s hard work is recognized annually by major publications, such as US News Best High Schools, and noted children’s advocacy groups.”

In addition to a base salary increase of between $3,500 & $5,000, teachers will be awarded a stipend of $1,000 if they have between 5 and 9 years of classroom experience. Those with more than 10 years’ experience will receive $2,000. “We see this as an investment not only in our teachers but in our students as well,” Ay said.

The new salary schedule follows Governor Greg Abbott’s signing of the $11.5 Billion school finance reform package. Harmony chose to target additional funding into pay & benefits for teachers and staff. These increases have been presented to the HPS Board of Directors, and will be up for approval after receiving regulations from TEA.

Harmony Proposed Pay Increases

Students who did not meet satisfactory performance standards on one or more STAAR End of Course exam(s) are required to continue testing as mandated by state law.  Below is the schedule for the next testing opportunity. Students who do not participate or are not successful in June, their next testing opportunity will be in December 2019.

Monday, June 24: English I
Tuesday, June 25: Biology
Wednesday, June 26: English II
Thursday, June 27: Algebra and US History
Friday, June 28: make up day

All testing will take place at HSA-Houston.  Please arrive at the check-in time specified above and enter through the front doors of the school.  Students must bring picture identification (school ID card, driver’s license, or state issued ID card) to the testing session.  Students are allowed to bring a quiet snack and a bottle of water. Cell phones will not be allowed in the testing rooms but can be stored at check-in with campus personnel.  Students may leave after completing their test.

Hi everyone!!!

Here is the summer reading assignment along with the myON supplement.
Thank you
Dear Students,
All students taking an AP course will be responsible for the AP summer assignment, and it will be graded as a major assignment in Q1.
Student’s participation in an official AP exam is an integral part of an AP course. Collegeboard will implement Fall AP Exam registration in 2019-20 school year, and HSA-Houston requires all AP Students to enroll in the exam. You can all AP Changes from this linkhttps://apcentral.collegeboard.org/about-ap/news-changes/ap-2019

HELLO EVERYONE

We created a website for our robotics team.

http://www.hsamomentum.com/

Each year we spend many hours organizing the master schedule. All of our students received their 2017-18 school year schedule on May 3rd. We have created a schedule change policy to enable our students and families to understand how to change their student’s schedule.

Schedule changes will not be made based on lunch, period, or teacher preferences. Your schedule reflects what you signed up for during spring course selection.

Ø  Level changes do not begin until week 4 of the new school year. Students are expected to seek support from their teachers prior to a level change.

Ø   No elective course changes will be made after May 31st, 2019.

 Schedule Change Requests will only be available by May 31st.

 Forms will only be accepted after this day for the following reasons:

  1. The student has already successfully completed the course, for example, in summer school.
  2. There is a duplicate course on the schedule.
  3. The course is needed to fulfill a graduation requirement.
  4. The student has been placed in an incorrect level of the course.
  5. The student is scheduled incorrectly as a result of inadequate or erroneous information.

Please submit the completed Schedule Change Request form to your counselor for consideration.
