Build a career at Harmony Public Schools
We are now accepting applications from certified ESL and Bilingual Teachers.
It is with great delight that I announce the first ever HPS Parent Academy at Harmony School of Advancement, Technology, Enrichment on Saturday, January 13, 2018. Since we believe that each child is an individual of great worth, our parents need to be integral partners. We know that parents have a huge impact in their children’s lives and are in fact their children’s first and most important teachers. The HPS Parent Academy is a district initiative that strives more directly engage parents in their children’s education and prepare them to provide support needed in order for the students to be more successful in school.
The Academy consists of a series of inspirational sessions covering a wide variety of topics – from how to help your children in reading and math to bullying prevention, how to engage children’s cooperation and immigration FAQs. It is our hope that as you attend these sessions, you will gain valuable information regarding diverse tools, strategies, and resources that help nurture student’s academic, social, and emotional development.
On behalf of our organizing committee, I look forward to a wonderful time of learning and networking with you and other parents.
Child care will be provided (4 years and older).
Please contact Mr. Ersoy at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

Please support the Houston Fire Department’s (HFD) annual Operation Stocking Stuffer Toy Drive by donating a new, unwrapped toy in the box located in the lobby of the school. HFD along with their good friends at KPRC Channel Two and great sponsors like Harmony Public Schools have put together the largest holiday toy drive in the City of Houston. With Harvey, this year the need is going to be greater than ever. In 2016 Operation Stocking Stuffer provided toys and gifts to over 4200 families. Please help us make 2017 the biggest year yet.
Featuring 2 Studio Movie Grill theater tickets tucked in a beautiful card and envelope, ready for gift giving this holiday season, or to use with our friends and families during the school break, and we can even save them for other occasions as they have no expiration and can be used at any Studio Movie Grill location all over USA…
Attention Seniors! Senior pictures will be taken on December 15 from 8-12. Photographers will take pictures of each senior in both cap and gown and street clothes. Wear school appropriate clothes that follow the free dress guidelines in the student handbook. No off the shoulder. No short dresses or skirts. There will not be a picture makeup day, so be sure to be here for the yearbook!
Harmony staff, teachers, and administrators have spent countless of hours preparing our students for college and each year approximately 85% of our graduating class enrolled in a post-secondary institution.
But, despite these impressive enrollment numbers, far too many of our low income and first-time college students drop out as they hit financial and circumstantial barriers such as the cost of attending college, that has increased by 36% in the last 10 years. Harmony Public Schools has 5,033 graduates to date and is projected to have 11,686 graduates by 2020, current funding sources are unable to meet even the current demands of these programs. Clearly, additional financial support is required.
We are asking our Harmony community to consider going beyond educational efforts, providing even greater assistance to our graduates through generous Harmony Giving Day contributions to the Harmony College Fund. All your donations will go towards helping our Harmony graduates to complete their higher education dreams and achieve their career aspirations by providing additional scholarships and direct college and career support services.
Let’s come together to reach our target of raising $50,000 on our first ever giving day.
Thank you for your generosity.
