Checking Grades in School Pathways
Be sure to check School Pathways for your child’s course grades. School Pathways is used to gather all online, Flex, and Portfolio grades into one place. Twice a month grades are updated, based on student progress and scores on assignments. Login emails for School Pathways were recently sent out for all students. Contact your mentor if you missed that email to have it sent to you again.

Introducing WhyTry
Harmony is introducing a new course, Growth Mindset with WhyTry! This life skills course aims to fill a student’s imaginary backpack with tools for life success. Through a combination of age-appropriate hands-on activities using creative metaphors, art activities, music, and journaling, students will explore strategies for life. WhyTry is a 16-week course for students in grades K-3 and 4-6. Look for more information in an email coming soon.

Options Day for 2nd Semester
Did you know that your child can still join Options Day for 2nd semester! Options Day offers 4 hours of fun, elective classes with other Harmony students. If you are interested in Options Day for 2nd semester, your mentor can help you and also answer any questions you may have.

Resource Orders
Resource ordering is now open again from December 1 to January 31.  Please note that orders placed in December are not guaranteed delivery before Christmas.

You are also able to submit a reimbursement request each month from now through May for each child. Only one document may be uploaded for each reimbursement request, but you may include multiple receipts in the document. 

You can check your student’s funding balance by going to your parent dashboard and scrolling down to see your child’s name. Then click on Student Funding Account. There you’ll see the remaining balance for your child. 

You can also check the status of your resource orders by clicking on each resource order link.  If there is an issue with your resource order, you can contact the ordering department by submitting a Help Desk Ticket.  You may leave comments related to missing items, provide additional information, etc.  Note: The Help Desk is only for resource order questions.

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 activities. 

We wish you a wonderful school year!
