The Big Read - HHS Summer Reading

With the notion of self improvement and community building in mind, Harrison High School is continuing for a second consecutive year with the effort of a “Common Reading Program” where students in all grade levels read a common text during the summer. Upon returning to school in the fall, this text is used as a “cornerstone text” for conversations and activities that aim to unify the students, parents, faculty, and staff of the Harrison High School community.

June  2014

Dear Harrison Community,

In what seemed like an eye-blink, the 2013-14 school year is finished.

Words can’t do justice to the sense of gratitude felt for all the support and partnership received from the community this year and every year. In so many ways it was everything we had hoped for. Students at all grade levels encountered new expectations and challenges. With the support of an intensely-dedicated teaching staff along with consistent support of parents, students discovered their talents, grew their interests, and many achieved life-long dreams, including the incredibly high number of graduating seniors who were accepted into their “reach” schools.Our underclassmen are primed to build upon the foundations laid and take the next steps in their journey.

It’s gratifying to see how Harrison High School maintained a standard of excellence of which all can be proud. Thank you!

Enjoy the summer. Re-charge. Rejuvenate. Think big!

See you in September.



Dr. Steven T. Siciliano
