Husky Day a Huge Success
Fifth Grade students from Parsons, Purchase, Harrison Avenue and Preston Elementary Schools were welcomed to Harrison High School by members of the HHS Band and Drumline for Husky Day. Husky Day is part of the District transition to middle school program, and is designed to introduce 5th graders from across the four elementary schools to each other prior to arriving at LMK in the fall. Fifth grade students are split into teams made up of students from each elementary school and participate in ice-breaker and team building activities developed by the District’s K-12 Physical Education and Health faculty and facilitated by student peer leaders from the high school. Activities are based on building student interaction using a variety of group activities, such as hula hoop challenges, obstacle courses and indoor adventure games. Students make new connections while having fun!
