Greetings Harbor Heights' Community,

I am extremely proud and grateful to be the principal of Harbor Heights Elementary. I taught third and fourth grade right here at Harbor Heights 15 years ago and returning as the principal this school year has been amazing! While I could not have imagined the challenges we'd face as a school community during the pandemic, I am grateful for the support and grace I have been shown as the new principal.

As we approach the spring, I am reflecting on the impactful work our staff do to support learning. Despite the many challenges we've faced our school community continues to thrive and shine in support of our precious students. Our students have been learning and continue to practice the habits of The Orca Way: Respectful, Responsible & Resourceful during learning and play.  Ask your student(s) to tell you more about these habits to encourage them to participate fully and successfully in their learning opportunities every day.

Now that health and safety restrictions have lifted a bit more there will be VPO and school-sponsored events like Book Fair, Field Day, Family Nights, and more to plan for the spring. If you are interested in volunteering or support, please connect with me at shepardaw@psd401.net or (253)530-1801.

Go Orcas!

Allison Shepard, Principal
