Re-enrollment 2024-25
Enrollment for the 2024-25 school year has begun. You should have received an email with instructions on how to re-enroll. If you haven’t received one, please check your spam folder or reach out to your mentor for help. If you have younger children or friends who would like to enroll, you can complete a new student application now. We look forward to working with your family for the new school year!

Important: Corvallis Homeroom / Attendance
Be sure to have your child respond to the daily attendance question in the Corvallis Homeroom Course in Canvas. The question is posted each day, and you have until 10:00 am to answer the question. Doing so provides Corvallis School District #1 Montana with a daily “attendance log” and helps them to have a connection with students. This is an important part of your child’s attendance with Corvallis.

If you are only working a 4-day school week, please email your mentor and let them know to add your students to the 4-day spreadsheet. Your mentor will be able to excuse your Friday absences once you notify her that you only work 4 school days.

If you have any questions about the daily Homeroom question, please contact your mentor.

Portfolio Submissions for 3rd Trimester and 4th Quarter (Grades K-12)
For Harmony Portfolio courses, the 3rd trimester and 4th quarter portfolio submissions are due on May 3rd. All portfolios need to be submitted as soon as possible to give the teachers time to review and grade them. If you weren’t able to submit by the 3rd, please email your mentor.

The guidelines for portfolios are as follows:

  • 5-8 portfolio items per subject.
  • Items need to show student work, and examples could include worksheets, reports, tests/quizzes, science projects, etc.  Remember that portfolio Items need to be the student’s actual work, not a learning log or description of what the student has been doing.
  • Portfolio items need to be grade-level work.
  • Portfolio items need to demonstrate student work over the course of 2 months.

Reimbursement Requests
Reimbursements can be requested once a month. Be sure to select the PRE APPROVAL option when you request your reimbursement in the FRC (Family Resource Center). The last day to submit a reimbursement request will be May 31st, so be sure to get all PRE APPROVAL requests in by May 24th to be sure they are approved in time.

Please also remember that all purchases over $1000.00 will become assets of the Corvallis School District #1 Montana, when/if your student exits the Harmony program.

Resource Orders
Resource ordering is closed. If you have a link to request a resource order outside of the normal window due to late enrollment, you have until May 15th to place that order. 

Get Social
Are you part of our growing community of Harmony parents? If not, please join us and get social. It’s a great place to share what is working with your family, ask questions of other parents, and receive updates on Harmony news.
