You are cordially invited to the 2017-2018 Harvest Park Middle School Open House. During the evening's activities, you will have the opportunity to visit your child's classrooms. The purpose of Open House is to enjoy the successes of your students.  Please understand that this is not a time to conference with your child's teacher.
