Dear Harvey Parents,
Fall is rapidly approaching and another school year is almost upon us.
The Harvey School Parents’ Association sends warm greetings to returning Harvey families and welcomes our new families to the 2014 - 2015 school year.
Harvey is an exceptional place, where parents benefit from supportive relationships with faculty and administration and have the opportunity to develop deep and lasting friendships with other families. While all parents of Harvey students automatically become members of the Parents’ Association, we invite you to become active members by attending meetings, volunteering for opportunities of interest, and offering input on how we can enhance our programs.
Harvey is a place where the whole child thrives. As parents we stay involved in our children’s education by providing support and services outside of the classroom. Throughout the year, the Parents’ Association organizes programs and events that build a strong scholastic and social community that further support the School’s overall mission and goals. The Parents’ Association prides itself on open communication encouraged in a respectful environment where all voices are heard and all thoughts are welcome.

Basketball & Volleyball Courts
Our spacious facility includes two basketball/volleyball courts, a state of the art fitness room, athletic training room, Athletic Department offices, and locker rooms. The area includes 14,000 square feet of space that can be utilized by fall and spring coaches when weather makes outdoor practice difficult. In addition to serving our athletic teams, the athletic center is used throughout the day by students, faculty and staff for physical fitness and intramural activities. Completed in the fall of 2012 the Athletic Center is in constant use by our students, teams and outside groups.
In the new Fitness Center students, faculty, staff and alumni have the choice of using 10 cutting edge cardiovascular machines (Cybex Arc Trainers, Cybex Treadmills, Octane XRide Bikes and Expresso Bikes). Additionally, the room contains a TRX Multimount, medicine balls, barbells and a Precor universal. The room is designed for cardiovascular exercise and light strength and conditioning work outs. The room is open throughout the day and afterschool for our community to utilize.
The trainer’s room is located in the lower corridor of the Athletic Center and provides an excellent facility for student-athlete rehabilitation. It includes trainer’s tables, ice machine and a whirlpool/ice bath.
Located adjacent to Carter Hall, the McConnell gym provides a third basketball/volleyball court used throughout the fall and winter.
