Welcome To The Harrington Elementary School
Success is directly proportionate to effort.
Welcome to our website! Here at Harrington School we encourage each member of the community to become active participants in the educational process.
By working together as partners, we are able to develop and implement a quality educational plan to ensure the success of our students.
As the school year begins we encourage families to read the Harrington Student / Parent Handbook, and along with the staff, sign our Title 1 Home/School Compact. In this way, we show our commitment to working together effectively. We recommend that parents and guardians: meet with their child's teacher to discuss student progress, stay actively involved in school events, and monitor their children's attendance, school and homework throughout the year. We believe that open communication and consistent cooperative effort are key components for a successful school year.
The staff and I look forward to working with you and your family as we guide, challenge and nurture your son / daughter to meet his/her full potential.
Best Wishes for a successful year!

Harrington School's Mission Statement
The mission of the Harrington Elementary School is to nurture, develop and educate all students from early childhood to early adolescence, from a variety of economic and ethnic backgrounds and ability levels, and to give these students a solid educational foundation with the tools and understanding necessary to be responsible citizens and lifelong learners. We believe that all children can learn. We recognize that the Harrington School has the primary responsibility for providing learning opportunities. We also recognize that parents/guardians are our partners in this process. Ultimately, together, we must develop student learners who are motivated and responsible for their own education. The Harrington Home/School Title 1 Compact reinforces the student / parent / teacher team message that all members must work together for ultimate success.
