Sadly our annual MomBall tournament with softball teams from surrounding Beverly schools can not happen this year, but the fundraising part of the event still is! Harborlight has been assigned cereal! We have just this week to collect as many boxes of cereal as we can to benefit Beverly Bootstraps! We will deliver the boxes to the drop off location this coming Saturday. If you would like to donate cereal to the cause, we will have collection bins outside the main entrance beginning later today. Thank you in advance!
Several classrooms have shared stories based upon an Aesop’s Fable called “The Bundle of Sticks.” This story is a great tool for building community in the classrooms at the beginning of a new school year. Read more to hear one version shared in Lower Elementary this week.
Each Friday, the middle school students will present a brief snapshot of what they learned, saw, and experienced that week. Beginning next week, the students will be on a rotating schedule to write this snapshot, and hopefully create a fun “column” name.
Some things look a little bit different and some things look very much the same. One thing that will never change is how excited and ready we are for Harborlight's first day of school. #harborlightfirstday#engageyourworld
Thanks to the diligence, teamwork, and cooperation of our faculty/staff, children, and families Harborlight has been having a very successful summer program since June 29th. We are thrilled to be able to continue our dedication to the health and safety of all community members while planning for 5 day on-campus learning in September.
As if it wasn't exciting enough to be back on campus, the students spent the week getting ready to celebrate the 4th. Knowing that parades, fireworks, bonfires, and many backyard BBQs were cancelled, it was fun to watch them celebrate together. After making their own fireworks (on paper) students watched some firework displays on the smart TV and cheered loadly during the grand finale. Students decorated hats, made a giant (and very impressive Statue of Liberty), some torches and rockets...and even decorated their bikes and had a parade.
If walls could talk. If Harborlight's walls could talk they would tell you how exciting it was to have our friends back on campus last week! We were so proud of our students, families, and staff for how well everyone transitioned back to the classrooms.
Shortly after this year's Graduation Live Stream, our 8th grade graduates drove to campus where they were celebrated and received their diplomas. Congratulations, Graduates! You can watch that celebration here by clicking on the title in the grey box.
