We have survived the first FULL week of classes at Harrisburg North Middle School. It has been a great start to the year already, with the introduction of a new advisory curriculum centered around the 16 Habits of the Mind, a new robotics course offered in our Encore rotation called Project Lead the Way, and the start of the fall Middle School sports season. As we end our first official week, remember there is no school on Monday, September 4th in honor of Labor Day.
According to the US Department of Labor, "Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country."
Enjoy your long weekend and thanks to everyone who is part of our Harrisburg family for making the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year here at HNMS a memorable one!
