If students work in their online courses during March 6-10, the completed assignments will be included in their 4th quarter grade.

Re-enrollment Starting Soon
Enrollment for the 2023-24 school year will begin in February. Be on the lookout for an email about re-enrollment coming this month. 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: Wasatch Homeroom / Attendance
Be sure to have your child respond to the weekly discussion post in the Wasatch Homeroom in Canvas. The question is posted each Friday, and you have until the following Friday to answer the question. Doing so provides WLA a weekly “attendance log,” and this is an important part of your child’s enrollment with WLA.

Spotlight: Spelling Stars
Did you know that Harmony provides Spelling Stars accounts to all students? Students use the games to learn to spell in an easy and motivating way. Games include some classics like Fill in the Blank, Mouse Maze, and Word Search, as well as some fun unique games like Crazy Fish and Bink Bonk. 

You are encouraged to use this program with your children as best meets their needs. There are no expected number of activities, and students are not required to use this program.

A new Spelling Stars section has been added to Harmony’s Curriculum Orientation, and you can find it here.

Note: Students in the Wasatch Connect program receive other supplemental programs.

Staying on Pace
Please be sure to stay on pace with your submissions, as well as online coursework. Contact your mentor if you have a question or issue regarding your student’s courses.  Your mentor is your main point of contact at Harmony and is available to help with any issues and concerns you may be having about courses, ordering, grades, etc.

Harmony Portfolio Courses
Be sure to submit learning logs each week for your child’s Harmony Portfolio courses.  This helps to stay on pace and to tell what your child has been working on during the week.

Once a quarter you will submit a portfolio for each core subject that shows that the student has been learning.  Here are the quarterly portfolio submissions dates for 2nd semester:

  • Feb. 10: 3rd quarter portfolio due
  • April 28: 4th quarter portfolio due

If you have any questions about portfolios, please contact your mentor.

Resource Ordering
Resource ordering is now closed for the 2022-23 school year. This includes resource orders for learning materials, Internet, and 3rd Party in which Harmony pays directly for the orders.

You are also able to submit a reimbursement request each month from now through May for each child. You can now submit multiple files per reimbursement request, so you no longer need to combine receipts into one document.

You can check your student’s funding balance by going to your parent dashboard and clicking on the Funding tab.  

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.
