2014-2015 School year student transfers
As we prepare for the re-districting of our elementary schools and make plans to accommodate the explosive growth taking place in Gig Harbor North, new out-of-district transfer requests will be impacted as follows:
- No new out-of-district transfers will be accepted at grades K through 5
- No new out-of-district transfers will be accepted at Harbor Ridge Middle School
Fillable transfer forms and school district transfer policies are available online at www.psd401.net at the Family scroll down menu under the Transfers tab. Completed forms must be returned to the District office via email, post, or drop-off, no later than April 30th. If you have questions, please call Roxann Tallman at 253-530-1007.

Read and Lead 2014
Welcome Back to Read and Lead, our wonderful 11-week reading program, sponsored by the PTA, that encourages family reading time while modeling consistent reading behavior. While the program is voluntary, we hope all families will choose to participate. Among other benefits of Read & Lead, our teachers see first hand the enthusiasm and improvement in student reading.
Reading Minutes. If you are new to the program, it's really quite simple. Over the next 11 weeks, your child will read 1,000 minutes aloud to you and you will read 1,000 minutes aloud to your child for a total of 2,000 minutes of reading. (Kindergarten students and parents read 800 minutes to each other for a total of 1,600 minutes of reading).
As you complete a Read & Lead recording sheet, return it to school. Please return the sheets in order. We record and return sheets on Thursdays. Prizes are awarded on Fridays.
Harbor Heights works best when there is active participation by our parents... PTA has a variety of opportunities for you to get involved in your school.

Another way to help is by using Escrip. PTA earns about $3500 a year from Escrip and we have an opportunity to increase those dollars if our users purchase online through the portal. For more information on this program, please go to:
