4 A Message from Our CEO Dear Harmony Community, At Harmony Public Schools, one of the many things we take pride in is our rigorous coursework. We don’t design our coursework to be challenging to our students to see if they might fail, though. We design it to be challenging because we know that our students can succeed despite the difficulty, and that through those challenges they will grow stronger. Together, as educators, students and families, we now face the toughest challenge perhaps anyone has faced in the history of modern education: COVID-19. Inside this document, you will learn more about how we will face this challenge together, and how the Harmony community already is growing to meet the needs of our students during these unprecedented times.
