Kindergarten Orientation is Coming
SAVE THE DATE!
Thursday, May 19th, 2016 marks the big day that Harbor Heights welcomes our 2016-2017 Kindergarten students and families in style!
Please plan to join us from 5:15-7:00 pm when our newest Orcas will have opportunities to tour the school, "ask the teacher", meet our community partners, sign up for PTA, take a bus ride and so much more! This is a night you will not want to miss.
We look forward to seeing you there!

PSD Students Getting Ready for Spring Testing
English and math: Students in grades 3-8 and 10/11 will take the Smarter Balanced state assessments in English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics this spring. These are computer adaptive tests that measure a student's career or college readiness or progress towards being career or college ready. Over 220 colleges, universities, technical schools now use the high school Smarter Balanced assessment results for college course placement, eliminating the need for costly placement tests or remedial coursework in English and/or math.
Science: Students in grades 5 and 8 will take the MSP Science test and high school students in Biology will take the end-of-course exam.
Read and Lead!
Our Read and Lead program kicked off February 26th and will run through April 8th. Students are off and reading and excited about the program! Please be sure to track your student's progress on the recording sheets so they qualify for all of the awards! If you misplaced the recording sheets, we've attached them below:
