Parents

Harwood family,

I would like to be the first to welcome you to Harwood Career Preparatory High School. I am Mary Gries, Family Engagement Coordinator here at Harwood Career Prep. I count it as an honor and privilege to be a part of the Harwood family!

Family and community involvement in our schools is very important for a student’s success in school and in life.  We recognize that in order for our students to be successful in school they need support from both home and school. With a great level of involvement, we can expect students to have higher grades, good attendance, increased motivation and self-esteem, and decreased discipline problems, to name a few. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. And it is my duty as Engagement Coordinator to help make this happen.

I’m excited to see the support thus far from everyone that has come through our doors, sat at the table with us, and helped develop innovative and creative ways that will open the door to some wonderful opportunities for our students to build upon as they make their journey to educational excellence and future success.

I welcome all to drop by anytime to visit the family room and see what we’re up to, here at Harwood. I look forward to building a partnership with you!

 

Mary
