Hoya Hello!

Students and/or parents will be able to make the above purchases with a check only. The Hole in the Wall school store will also be open for student and parent shopping. Payments to The Hole in the Wall may be cash or check. While parents are welcome to attend the Hoya Hello, it is not necessary for parents to accompany their upperclassmen students.

Course Changes for Harrison’s World Language Department

We are excited to inform our Harrison community that we are expanding our world language programs beginning fall 2017! We have hired an additional part-time French teacher and a part-time German teacher. While we are excited about the world language opportunities, we are unable to offer Latin due to personnel changes for the next school year. Students who have already taken Latin I and/or Latin II will have the option to complete their Latin pathway through Latin III via Georgia Virtual School (GAVS). We have designated a supervised computer lab for students taking classes online through Cobb Virtual Academy (CVA) or GAVS at no financial cost. Students wishing to continue their study of Latin should contact their school counselor for registration information. August 3, 2017, is the last day to register for the 18-week fall term Latin II and/or Latin III course through GAVS. For students who are interested in taking French or German courses, you may contact the School Counseling Department during their summer office hours or during Hoya Hello on Thursday, July 27, 2017. If you have further questions, you may contact Assistant Principal Amanda Shaw at (678) 594.8104 ext. 012.

Update The Hole in the Wall!

Harrison is planning a generational refresh of the school store, and we need your help! We are seeking donations from former students, parents, and the Hoya community to assist us in reaching our goal of $5,000! We are planning to expand The Hole in the Wall to 430 square feet, which could mean an increase in sales of up to 35%! For more information on how to donate, please see our fundraising flyer
