ECP and Elementary Updates, Fall 2020

Harmony’s Early Childhood Program scaled back from our normal enrollment of 21 kids and started a pod of six children and one teacher in an outdoor classroom set up on our little playground. ... The Elementary is off to a great start with our distance learning. At this time, all the classrooms are meeting in small groups over Zoom for their lessons, routines, and themes. Each classroom is also providing opportunities for the kids to see each other during in-person time at and away from Harmony.

Middle and High School Updates, Fall 2020

The first two weeks the middle school held socially distanced classes outdoors. Our third week marked the switch to online learning. The students have all been given individualized schedules with times when they will meet with each teacher in large groups, small groups, and one-on-one when needed. . ... Perhaps the most exciting news from the high school this fall has been the departure of high school senior, Kobe Thompson, on his senior project: to swim the English Channel!

Marty Belcher, middle school teacher, retires after 44 years of teaching

Marty was one of Harmony's first teachers. He began teaching at Harmony in 1978 as a 5th and 6th grade language arts teacher. He made the transition to middle school ten years later, where he continued to focus on language arts and social studies. Marty coordinated Harmony's yearbook every year, and says, "publishing student work has been a fundamental part of my curriculum."
