Middle School News

Here we are again, approaching the holidays and the
exciting Follies. For those of you who are new to the
Harmony community, the Follies are our holiday show
where students and staff get to show off their talents
and interests. It is a variety show where students write
their own skits, perform music, sing songs, dance, and
do comedy acts. Students work with a teacher to write
their skits or practice. Many students are accompanied
by one of our many talented staff and Marty works with
a skilled group of students to MC the event. Please join
us on Dec. 20 to experience the magic of the Harmony
Holiday Follies.
Since the last newsletter there have been many things
going on in the Middle School, both with our curriculum
and as a community. As you know we went to the
Indianapolis Museum of Art. Students had a wonderful
time both seeing and experiencing art at the museum.
I was able to share one of my favorite pieces from
when I was there age that is still on exhibit. The Matisse
exhibition was amazing and has inspired our students to
create 3-Dminsional Matisse rooms. Students were split
into groups and given one of Matisse’s paintings. They
were then challenged to take these paintings of rooms
and recreate them in 3-D. You may have seen some of
them on display at the Open House in Ursina’s room.
We want to thank all of you who attended the Open
House, who contributed food, and helped us prepare
by cleaning. Also, thank you to all of the families that
attended the work days and worked so hard to clean up
the grounds and our rooms.
Enjoy this exciting time of year and please feel free to
drop by to see us on Mondays with any questions.
– Kelli, Marty, and Ursina
