Early release days provide better opportunities for our teaching staff to assemble and improve their craft. On these days, school will dismiss a few hours early. On these early release days (just like we do for a "traditional" ½ day), school buses will transport students home at the conclusion of these days. Parents can also choose to come and pick up their child (children) at the conclusion of these days. Further, at the earlier grades (PK/Kindergarten-8th Grade) there will be a reduced price childcare option ($20 per session) for those parents who need / want this for their children on these early release days. Lunch will be served on all early release days in grades PK/K-8th grade.

Mrs. Stewart - Office Assistant
The office would like to have ALL students keep a spare set of changing clothes (shirt, pant, socks, underwear) stored in their locker in case of an accident where the student needs to change. This will help with not having to make calls to home! Thanks for your cooperation.
Need to tell us that your student will be absent? Need help finding a form? Need Lunch account information? Any general questions can now go to email@example.com. This email will be sent to Mrs. Bekkala, Mrs. Stewart and Ms. Sickler, so answers may be sent back in a timely manner.
Meet Your Principal, Emily Sickler
Dear Harvest Elementary Families,
My name is Emily Sickler and I am delighted to introduce myself as your new principal of Harvest Elementary School. I am honored to be selected to positively lead, learn, and have fun alongside the students, staff, and families in this vibrant learning community.
My journey as an educator started at the University of Michigan when I student taught in Kindergarten. After college, I was able to long-term sub in Young 5s, 1st, and 3rd grade before settling into 5th grade where I worked for 8 years. I also had the opportunity to teach 1st grade for 3 years. In 2016, I was hired as the assistant principal for Saline Middle School.
Together, we will work collaboratively to provide ALL Harvest students the best opportunities to feel valued, safe, and invested in their learning. As principal, I will always be open to your input and feedback as we work together. Please connect via email, by phone, or make an appointment to meet in person. Weekly updates, our school’s Facebook page, and Twitter are additional ways to connect.
Want to know a little more about me? Watch this video where I introduce myself, share a few of my favorite things, and read a story.
The Harvest Elementary School community works to ensure that we are prepared to meet the needs of the students.
We collaborate to empower all students to reach their potential in a safe, productive environment that values diversity and encourages respect.
Together we provide a quality education so our students are prepared for their next transition and become responsible contributors in their complex world environment.
