Welcome Letter from the PA President
Dear Harvey Parents,
2016-2017 is sure to be an exciting year, as we welcome the new Head of The Harvey School, Bill Knauer. There will be many opportunities to meet and get to know Mr. Knauer, and I hope you will try to attend as many events and activities as possible to give him a warm welcome!
Whether you come to the monthly Parent Association (PA) meetings, volunteer on a committee or simply attend some of the events--including the popular informal parent socials--I know you will find that the PA offers many ways to connect with the Harvey community.
The year gets off to a quick start with our first PA meeting September 14, Back-to-School Nights September 20 (US) and 21 (MS), then Homecoming October 14 and 15, so get out your calendar and note the following PA events. Be sure to check the website regularly for updates (and the full schedule):
