Harmony Public Schools implemented home visits over a decade ago now called HPS PATH program (Parent and Teacher Home visits). We are proud to announce that all six districts and 58 campuses are active participants in the HPS PATH Program.

Home visits are intended to develop a positive and impactful relationship with families. This is an opportunity to get to know you and your child in the comfort of your own home. Time is taken to share your Hopes & Dreams for your student, academic expectations, and share school resources. Home visits are not parent/teacher conferences.  They are meant to “get to know each other” and to build a viable relationship for the academic benefit of your student.

Studies show that this program has increased student academic achievement and improved parent engagement in schools.  It has brought teachers and families closer together and created opportunities for better communications between home and school.

We are excited about the HPS PATH Program and look forward to meeting with you and your student! To request a home visit, please click here:

In 1500 Spain conquered Mexico naming it New Spain. Life under the Spanish empire was harsh and many of Mexico’s natives (Mayans and Aztecs) were forced into slavery. Years later, on September 16, 1810 and under the guidance of priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla the Mexican people began their revolt against the Spaniard empire. Finally in 1821 Mexico defeated Spain. Nowadays Mexican Independence Day is celebrated every September 16 to remember the beginning of the Mexican struggle towards freedom.

In previous years our school has been characterized by its effort to continue supporting our Hispanic heritage. This year we want to recognize Mexican Independence Day for the importance it has for our heritage, reason why we ask for the continuous support of parents and students.

The Mexican Independence Day celebration will take place on Monday, September 16th 2019 from 4:00 p.m.- 5:00 p.m.  in HSA’s Main Cafeteria.   $1.00 entrance fee!! There will be food, candy, and lots of fun!! Please purchase your tickets with any of the Spanish department teachers.
