Martina Mangan

It is my pleasure and honor to announce Martina Mangan as the principal of Harritt Elementary School beginning 2014-15 school year!  Martina comes to Harritt most recently from her Curriculum Assistant Principal role at West Salem High School.  Before that, she was at North Salem High School.  In both schools, she was the primary contact for the dual language program and worked with me and principals of other dual language schools on vertical articulation of the program.  She herself is multilingual, and raised her children to be bilingual and biliterate - English/German.  Martina has been a foreign language teacher and athletics coach but is looking forward to getting back to the elementary level where she started as an educator in Salem-Keizer at Morningside and Four Corners.


Please join me in welcoming Martina Mangan to Harritt!  Bienvenidos!  Herzlich Willkommen!


Es mi placer y honor anunciar a Martina Mangan como la nueva directora de la Escuela Primaria de Harritt empezando 2014-15!  Martina viene a Harritt de su posición mas reciente como sub-directora de curriculo en la Escuela Secundaria de West Salem.  Anteriormente estaba en la Escuela Secundaria de North Salem.  En ambas escuelas, era la responsible de coordinar el programa dual al nivel secundario.  Ella misma es multilingue, y educo sus hijos a ser bilingue y biletrado - ingles/aleman.  Martina ha sido maestra de idioma y entrenadora atletica pero esta emocionada para regresar al nivel primaria donde comenzo su carrera como educadora en Salem-Keizer en las escuelas Morningside y Four Corners.


Unanse conmigo en dando la bienvenida a Martina Mangan a Harritt!  Welcome!  Herzlich Willkommen!

Reminder: All Books Due June 3rd (Tuesday)

posted May 29, 2014, 12:05 PM by Harritt Elementary

This is a reminder that all books are due by Tuesday, June 3rd.  Students who bring back their books will be rewarded with a small prize (a sticky hand or bouncy ball) and each classroom who has all students returning their library books will get a free 30 minute recess!

Students who have not returned their library books will NOT be allowed to participate in Field Day on the last day of school.  They will pay restitution by helping to organize the library.  Another option for lost books is to pay for the book or purchase the same book and return that to the library.

Thank you for helping our library continue to offer great books!

Sr. Penhollow


Martes, 03 de junio, es el último día para devolver los libros de la biblioteca.  Los que devuelvan los libros sacados en préstamo recibirán "una mano pegajosa" o "una pelota" y participarán en un sorteo a ver si se ganan premios estupendos.

También, las aulas cuyos estudiantes devuelvan los libros de la biblioteca tendrán un recreo de 30 minutos.

Los alumnos que no hayan devuelto los libros de la biblioteca NO podrán participar en el Día de Campo.  Tendrán que ayudar a organizar la biblioteca.  Opción de los que hayan extraviado algún libro: pagar el libro o comprar el mismo libro y entregarlo a la biblioteca.

Muchas gracias por ayudarnos a garantizar que la biblioteca continúe ofreciendo una amplia variedad de libros.

Two days have been added back to the school calendar for 2013-14 for all students except graduating seniors.  These days were added by the interim superintendent to make up for the days that school was closed due to inclement weather.

June 11 and June 12, 2014, are now regular school days. June 12 is now the final day for elementary students.
