Harmony Public Schools Where Excellence Is Our Standard May 5, 2014 Dear Harmony Graduating Seniors and Parents, We are excited to announce our 3rd Annual Harmony Public Schools “College Acceptance Day Pep Rally”. This exciting event will take place on May 23rd at Rice University Tudor – Field house. All graduating seniors from each Harmony High School campus in the Greater Houston area will come together to celebrate and announce for the “first time” which college they plan to attend in the fall. ALL 7th-12th grade students from every Harmony campus in the Greater Houston area will be attending this event. We anticipate over 4,000 of our students will be in attendance. Local and statewide keynote speakers, media outlets, politicians, industry leaders, and local college representatives will be in attendance. This event will be professionally videotaped and sent to all parents, as well as made available through our Harmony Campus websites and Harmony Facebook page. So, get out your favorite college gear and get ready to “SHOUT”, “SCREAM” and “YELL” your favorite CHANTS and CHEERS. This is going to be a WILD and CRAZY frenzy of “COLLEGE-READY”, “COLLEGEBOUND” FUN. PARENTS- 1. Please purchase a college decal/flag/pennant/shirt or the like that your senior can unfold and display when they make the “Big Announcement” on Stage. 2.
