The purpose of this announcement is to inform our HPS communities about changes to the Student Success Initiative (SSI) promotion/retention and retesting requirements for the 2020–2021 school year. In light of past and anticipated impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commissioner of Education has waived grade promotion requirements for students in fifth and eighth grade for the 2020–2021 school year. Notwithstanding anything the contrary in prior policy or procedure, Harmony Public Schools will comply with the Commissioner’s waiver of SSI requirements for this school year.

Friday before School Breakfast Week – March 5

Next week is School Breakfast Week 2021 and this year’s theme is Blast Off with a Healthy School Breakfast. We will explore the Gourmet Galaxy with Gravity Grains, Eclipse Egg, Meteor Milk, Martian Melons, and Galactic Greens. Eating breakfast every day is out of this world when it has milk, fruits, vegetables, whole grains or lean protein from Texas. Each day next week, after you stand for the pledge of allegiance, we will shine the light on Texas foods that taste great for breakfast.

Monday – March 8

Good Monday morning! Today kicks off School Breakfast Week. The theme is Blast Off with a Healthy School Breakfast. You can take a ride on the grain spaceship with healthy products like whole grains in bread, waffles and tortillas or whole oats in oatmeal. In the Grains Galaxy, Texas is one of the top producers of wheat. Texas can even boast about having its own toast. Texas Toast tastes great when it’s whole-grain rich. Taking time for breakfast fuels us to follow the 3E’s of Healthy Living — Education, Exercise and Eating Right.

Tuesday – March 9

We are celebrating School Breakfast Week as we Blast Off with a Healthy School Breakfast. Today we are going to meet Eclipse Egg. During a solar eclipse, the moon blocks the sun’s light. Texas overshadows many states in the number of eggs produced. An egg is a lean protein. Your body puts protein to work for everything from giving you energy to growing your hair and nails. Eat a breakfast with a lean protein today.

School Breakfast Week keeps blasting along with Meteor Milk. By drinking Meteor Milk with your breakfast, you can become a bright star in your school. Did you know that when you take a walk in the same day you drink milk you build better bones? It is easy to get Texas milk for a healthy Texas breakfast. Make milk part of your breakfast and have a “Dairy” nice day!

If you have six bags of Martian Melons and there are three Martian Melons in each bag, how many melons do you have? With the help a healthy school breakfast that has fruit, you might have been one of the first to know you’d have 18 melons. Whether it is citrus fruit, apples, strawberries or watermelon, it is easy to eat a colorful breakfast with Texas fruit. Just wash it and eat it whole or cut it or peel it and eat it. Blast off with a Healthy School Breakfast – it’s a smart way to start your day!

Friday – March 12

This week we learned how to Blast Off with a Healthy School Breakfast. At the end of School Breakfast Week we are exploring Galactic Greens. You can add greens like spinach to many breakfast dishes including eggs, burritos, and even smoothies. Other vegetables grown in Texas include colorful carrots, outstanding onions premier potatoes and top tomatoes. Vegetables are great for breakfast. There are tomatoes and other vegetables in the salsa you put on a breakfast burrito. A good breakfast provides you with enough fuel to Blast Off. That is what we learned during School Breakfast Week 2021.
