Message from Principal Singley

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Can you believe that there is less than a month of school left?  Where has the year gone?  I am hopeful that all of our students and parents feel that this school year has been successful.  I have seen our students make significant growth in many areas.  At Harmon, we do place an emphasis on academics but we also want to be sure and help students develop in many other areas as well.  As each year winds down I  always like to reflect back on the year and I am always amazed by the amount of learning that has taken place.  Your children have been excellent to work with this year.

Message from FUSD re: Newtown Tragedy

By now you most likely have heard about the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. While Newtown is far away, Newtown families are near to our hearts. Early reports, not at all surprisingly, indicate that teachers and staff performed remarkably, putting themselves in harm’s way to protect their children, saving many young lives with their actions.

Although we cannot help but feel emotionally connected, there is no indication that this is anything but an isolated incident in a state far from Arizona, Even so, it is only natural that we look now at the security of those who are dearest to us.

Message from the J.O. Combs Unified School District Governing Board re: "Food Fight"

San Tan Valley Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting welcoming Scrubs & More Boutique to the community and into the Chamber

After careful review of all of the facts surrounding the cafeteria incident of May 17, 2013, the School Board of J.O. Combs Unified School District stands behind and fully supports the decisions of the Combs High School Administration. Policies and procedures were followed appropriately. There are many facts which were not initially presented, or announced by the media, which fully support the discipline invoked, which involve the suspension of twelve students. Only three seniors were involved, among whom only one may have been eligible to participate in graduation ceremonies. The consequence of suspension prohibits students from being on campus, participating in extra-curricular activities or competing in competitive events. A suspension received this time of year impacts all end-of-the-year events, including the graduation ceremony.
