  • Harbor City Elementary 

    Welcome to a new and exciting school year!  It is the intent of Harbor City's administration and staff to keep you well informed concerning our students, the school, and the community.  Research shows that parent involvement is high on the list of factors contributing to student success in school.  Our goal is to work with you to provide the best possible education for your child.  

    We feel parents are our partners in the important job of educating the children of this community.  Show you are interested and concerned--Be There.  Become a volunteer, actively participate in our Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO), or join us for School Advisory Council (SAC) meetings.  At home, take time each day to inquire about experiences at school.  Ask about homework assignments.  Your consistent interest in your child's progress and personal development in school will motivate him/her to want to learn.  

    Home and school, working together as a team, will make the school year a very successful one for your child.  We are looking forward to a wonderful and productive year at Harbor City Elementary.
