Freedom families, we are three days in to our Fun Run Fundraiser and we have already raised $18,005 for our school! The bulk of funds being raised will be dedicated to a new outdoor classroom here at Freedom. We are in the process of reviewing designs from several landscape architects. A few important notes to pass along: * We surpassed the $15,000 amount last night so everyone has earned our first school incentive - Pajama Day! All learners can wear pajamas tomorrow (Thursday, May 6) to celebrate the milestone! Our next school-wide incentive is a school grill out (hot dogs) if we reach $20,000. We should reach that goal soon! * Our next challenge will be to get 85% of our learners registered at www.funrun.com. This video (https://vimeo.com/450225749/c34f4d436d) walks you through the process if you haven't done so. We are at 77% percent now, but if we reach our goal we'll have a Hat Day/Crazy Hair Day on Friday! * Our actual run will be held Friday, May 14th. Due to Covid protocols in place, we are NOT allowing any visitors on site to watch the Fun Run. Instead, we'll be posting lots of photos and videos all day on our Seesaw and social media accounts.
Mrs. Goedtke's 4th grade class has been pen pals with Ms. Cardillo's National Honor learners. They got to meet in person yesterday on the path between the High School and Freedom!
Freedom families! I wanted to let you know that registration for the Freedom Fun Run fundraiser has officially begun. This is the same fundraiser we did last fall and it was a HUGE success! A piece of paper will be sent home today with more information. You can also register on funrun.com today. Our goal is to raise $30,000 for an outdoor learning center. We are so excited about this fundraiser because it will be fun for all of our learners—they’ll take part in a character program, all participate in the Fun Run and get a needed boost of school spirit, too! Our school has always relied on solid fundraising to provide an excellent educational experience for all our learners, as well as provide a community building experience. And this year, we need more support than ever. I’d like to ask for your family's support through this fundraiser by sharing your child's fundraising link with others. You’ll learn more about how to easily do that on funrun.com as we get closer to our start date, which is on Monday, May 3rd. The race will be held on Friday, May 14th. Thank you for your support this year! Go, Tigers!
Each year, in partnership with Sanford Health, Harrisburg School District recognizes the outstanding work of educators. Harrisburg staff members nominate individuals from their respective buildings that they feel go above and beyond for learners and families. An independent review committee scores the applications and helps to determine the annual winners of our Teacher of the Year and Classified Employee of the Year. This year, we are proud to award HHS Family & Consumer Science Teacher 𝙈𝙧𝙨. 𝙏𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙮 𝙆𝙚𝙧𝙣 (Teacher of the Year) and District Registrar 𝙈𝙧𝙨. 𝘾𝙖𝙧𝙤𝙡 𝘽𝙪𝙘𝙝𝙤𝙡𝙯 (Classified Employee of the Year) for their dedication to helping all learners find success. #TigerProud 🐾🏆

We noticed that our Freedom pick-up needs a little work! No worries, we have a graphic that can hopefully eliminate some of the problems. Please make sure to keep the left lane (red line on the map) open at all times. Many cars are double parked as they wait for pickup and that backs up the entire line of cars. We also have kids walking through lanes of traffic to enter those double parked cars which is a huge safety concern. Please share this graphic with anyone that is picking up your child (including older siblings) so we are all on the same page.
A reminder there will be NO SCHOOL February 11 - 15th. 🐾
