Experience the power of public education.
Akoma- the house of Love, Grandeur- the house of Greatness, Sueños- the house of Dreams, and Rispetto- the house of Respect
These are the houses that Harris Elementary students were welcomed into Friday October 19, 2018.
The idea was sparked after the leadership team went to visit the Ron Clark Academy, in Atlanta, Georgia. There students were sorted into their own houses and were encouraged to build relationships with their teammates, push eachother to grow as scholars, and live up to the expectation of their house name.
Jeff Henderson, Rio Olympic gold medalist in the long jump, was an honored guest that spoke to students about dreaming big and working hard to reach their goals.
He is a McAlmont native, attending Harris and Sylvan Hills as a student. Students were able to hold his gold medal as they listened to his story.
