Students will bring their fair tickets home on Thursday; tickets are good Monday-Friday, Oct. 6-19. The Harrison PTA needs your support. Please consider joining the PTA and/or volunteering with this wonderful organization. Membership dues are $7.50. News from the Harrison PTA: If you ordered PTA spirit wear for your child, the delivery has been delayed at the design company. The PTA apologizes for this inconvenience to your child and wants you to know they will get their spirit wear as soon as possible. Once again this year, you can help the PTA make a dime without spending a dime. Just cut the box tops from participating General Mills products and send them to school with your child. We have started our first contest of the year – Boys vs Girls – and the winning gender gets a Jeans Day! Students should write their gender on the bag of box tops and drop the bag in the collection bin in the front hallway. This contest runs until Oct. 5th. There are Spirit Nights planned for Chick fil-A, Orange Leaf, and Five Below. On these days just let the cashier know you are supporting Harrison Intermediate. The dates are: Chick fil-A (from 5-8pm): Oct. 27, Dec. 17, Jan. 29, Feb. 24, Mar. 23, Apr. 30, and May 20 Orange Leaf (from 11am-10pm): Oct. 9, Nov. 13, Dec. 11 Five Below: Oct. 5-12 College Thursdays – Thursdays are College Day in Wylie and students and staff are encouraged to wear a college shirt and jeans. Jeans and shirts must be school appropriate and a belt must still be worn. Students may only wear jeans if they wear a college shirt.
