Harrison County School District is proud to announce two PRE-K4 classes; this is the beginning of a great partnership with South MS PreK4Ward Initiative to help our children of the Harrison County School District. Early intervention is one of the single most important factors of a child’s educational progression. We are grateful that we have partners like Head Start, however, we would like to expand on the services provided for our PreK4 children. This partnership is allowing Harrison County to begin its expansion of services for our PreK students.
Early Childhood Education
PreK4Ward is now taking applications for 40 seats in 2 new classes that will be opening later this month in the Orange Grove/Three Rivers area of the Harrison County School District. PreK4Ward offers a free, high quality program to children that turned 4 years old by September 1 of this year. The hours of the classes are 8:30 to 2 pm on the days that the school district holds classes.
Parents, you may find an application at PREKRWARD or by going to our webpage at www.prek4ward.org.
Students living in the Harrison County School District that are qualified for Head Start but not currently enrolled are encouraged to apply, as well as all others interested.
Athletic passes can be purchased at D’Iberville HS, Harrison Central HS, West Harrison HS, D’Iberville Middle, North Gulfport, North Woolmarket, and West Wortham or at home athletic events.
Student passes are $20 and adult passes are $50.
|COMPASS LEARNING ODYSSEY|
Our district has chosen to use Compass Learning Odyssey®, a Web-based curriculum, to enhance your child’s educational experience. This program is linked to the Northwest Evaluation Association’s (NWEA) Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) to provide individualized instruction. The activities are designed to meet your child’s needs based on the MAP score in each tested area.
Your child will use his or her HCSD user name and password to log in. We are requesting that all students in grades 2—8 spend at least 15 minutes of home use per day working in this program. Summer usage will help maintain skills and prepare your child for the upcoming school year.
