Harmony will be hosting an in-person, outdoor ceremony this Saturday, May 21, 2022, at 1:00 PM to celebrate the past, present, and future of the nearly 100 year old building which first housed Elm Heights School and which Harmony has owned since 1985. We feel it is important to honor the former Elm Heights students and families who, for the last 37 years, have supported Harmony’s programs and efforts to maintain the historic Elm Heights building and the school’s legacy.
Captain Kathryn Janeway, an alum of Harmony in its future form, will return to Harmony on her birthday weekend to deliver a message of inspiration, through a Harmony student, to the Bloomington community. Join us for this special time-bending event!

We will be dedicating a classroom to the Taylor/Suer family, which includes Jeri Taylor, the creator of Captain Janeway and writer for the Star Trek: Voyager series, and dedicating our elevator to Cleo J. Cook, Carl Cook’s grandmother.
