Science Is Cool - Discover, Invent, Experiment - Be Amazed! was the theme of this year's Elementary Science Fair for K-2nd grade. We were amazed by this years's projects. Students has very impressive tri-boards and had a great variety of projects demonstrating the scientific method. Fifth grade GT students were used as judges for first and second grade. They had a tough time picking the winners.

Dear Harmony Parenrs and Supporters,

This rally will take place at the Texas State Capitol in Austin, Wednesday May 8th, 2013 from noon to 3pm. The policies that impact charter schools will be deliberated during this legislative session. Hearing directly from charter school leaders, parents and teachers is one of the best ways for state legislators to understand how vital charter schools are to providing a great public education for Texas students. Join us as we stand together in support of Texas public charter schools! It is a great opportunity for you to meet parents from other Harmony schools. It will be a fun day!

|Four Harmony Campuses Made into the Challenge Index|
Washington Post has announced its Most Challenging High Schools list of 2012. Four Harmony high schools made the Challenge Index and three of them in the top 100 out of 1900 schools in the list.
The Challenge Index of Washington Post ranks high schools since 1998 based on the student achievement on IB, AP, and college level tests (SAT, ACT, etc.) and graduation rates. The index score is the number of college-level tests given at a school in 2011 divided by the number of graduates that year. Also noted are the percentage of students who come from families that qualify for lunch subsidies (Subs. lunch) and the percentage of graduates who passed at least one college-level test during their high school career, called equity and excellence, (E&E). A (P) next to the school's name denotes a private school.
See the detailed list here.

|Letter to Key Stakeholders Regarding The New York Times Article|
From Superintendent Dr. Soner Tarim To the Harmony Public Schools Community: A disappointing article on charter schools in this week's New York Times attempts to put Harmony Public Schools in Texas in a context that is not accurate, necessitating this brief response. Many of us at Harmony Schools cooperated extensively with the Times on this story over the last several months, providing documents, interviews, tours and dozens of detailed responses to specific questions in good faith. But, as sometimes happens, the end result was not entirely what we had hoped. See the rest of Dr. Soner Tarim's response here: http://harmonytx.org/news/122/letter-to-stakeholders-on-ny-times-article/
