As you know, with the funding from Race to The Top District grant, Harmony Public Schools started a 1:1 technology initiative in the beginning of this school year, and handed a chrome book device to every single student and core subject teacher in grades 6 thru 12. All Harmony educators and leaders see this initiative as a tremendous opportunity to personalize student learning and radically improve achievement. With the right approach, leveraging technology can yield promising academic results and boost performance both for students and teachers. In an effort to assess effectiveness and improve our technology initiative, Harmony Public Schools intends to conduct a scholarly research on how technology integration into classrooms impacts students, teachers, and parents. This research will help school and district leaders at Harmony to make sound research-based judgments about future design and refinement of our technology programs. It will also give us a chance to get input from our most valued stakeholders. The researcher will keep participant identities confidential and will not release it to any Harmony employees, nor will he link any identities to survey inputs. We are excited about this research opportunity and would definitely like to see all our teachers, parents, and students participate as much as possible. Thank you for your continued support!

There were 20 entries in categories ranging from environmental science, chemistry/physics and life science. Omar Obeid, an 8th grader in Ms. Callado's science class, entered a winning project in microbiology in which he studied the effects of geranium oil, sphagnum moss extract, evening primrose oil, echinacea oil and elderberry extract on enteric bacteria. This project received a first place award in the microbiology division. Omar will be representing HSA-GP on March 21-23 in San Antonio at the EXXON MOBILE Texas State Science Fair.

|Fire Safety at HSAGP|
Our school was fortunate to have the Station 1 Fire Department and the City of Grand Prairie Fire Chief, Mr. Fite, and Ambulance at our campus on February 19. Our Kinder through 3rd grade were able to a fire safety briefing. Also our Tigermedix students were able to get information on the career paths in this emergency medicine through the expertise of the Lifesaving personnel from our community.
|HSAGP Select Students Visit UTSW|
A select group of students in the Tigermedix program had the privilege to visit the UT Southwestern Medical Campus on February 14th. As we arrived to the hospital we were taken to take part in a very interesting lecture in Biochemistry from Liela Bayeh, BB Student Research Asst. Students asked several questions and answered questions very professionally and correctly. “These are very intelligent students!” added Ms. Bayeh after lecture had ended. Then we were taken to an area that is restricted and due to HIPAA Law not just anyone is allowed to enter and participate in viewing this area, but due to these students having the knowledge and training received by both the science department and Tigermedix, they were allowed to have access to the “Anatomy / Willed Bodies Lab” more commonly known as the Cadaver Lab. This was an extraordinary experience and our students were put to the test by their personnel. “Wow, let me say that this is the first time someone gets that answer right the first time it’s asked...” Ms. I, Williams expressed. Students held human body organs and learned about how other medical students work in the lab and what they learn. Last, we visited the area where the electron microscope is kept. It was quite fascinating to find out the different career paths that there is in medicine. We would like to thank all of the people that opened the doors to their labs to let us have this great experience. Thank you UTSW!
|Students visit State Representative|
Some of our Science Fair winners and Student Ambassador took a field trip to visit our State Representative Linda Harper Brown at her Irving office. We presented her with the "Friend of STEM Education" award on behalf of our school for her outstanding support and dedication to Harmony Public Schools and STEM Education in Texas. Students discussed their science fair projects, plans for their future and current events. They also asked Representative Harper Brown questions about her input on laws and enjoyed discussing current "Hot Topic" bills and legislation. We appreciate her hard work to make Texas and our area a better place to live.
|A Visit From The Mayor|
By M.K. Molai
I have been part of Harmony GP for 5 years. I am one of the presidents of Tigermedix, a member and student representative for both the School Health Advisory Council and the Campus Improvement Program.
This year I was given the opportunity to accompany the Mayor of the city of Grand Prairie, Mayor Ron Jensen. As we walked around the event and looked at all the projects in both the science fair and STEM festival, he spoke about all the accomplishments in science and health. He was proud to see how STEM had such a positive effect on our students and hoped that other schools would implement the same.
We would like to thank the Mayor for coming out to our school and spending some of his time to participate in this event.
