On Sunday evening Harwood’s new National Honor’s Society members were inducted in a beautiful ceremony that reflected their service to our community local and afar.
In this season of Thanksgiving we want to express our gratitude for:
these leaders in our National Honors Society
our nurses who have contract traced on multiple weekends and evenings
April Rule - our new Administrative Assistant who dove in the deep end upon arrival and has been supporting our community
our student leaders who modeled the values of an upstander by working to keep “sports safe” in the face of homophobic and racist actions on Vermont’s sportsfields
our staff who are constantly working to create a climate of academic excellence and acceptance for all
our students who make Harwood an active learning environment each and every day
our families for your partnership, patience and support
Lastly, we are grateful and excited to announce Harwood Union’s Instagram account. As we seek to strengthen our communication with families and students you can find our posts here.
