Dear HSI-Sugar Land Mustang Students & Parents/Guardians,

This is a reminder that the second installment for Senior Dues are due on January 15th, 2022 @11:59pm. If you have already paid in full for any of the packages, then you do not need to worry about paying again, unless you would like to buy an add-on (like a prom ticket or senior week). If you paid the first installment, you MUST pay the rest of the second installment.

The Bronze package is REQUIRED for all seniors to buy if not purchasing any other package. This is the package that is needed in order for your child to graduate.

For those who did not meet the first installment, the FIRST and SECOND installment will now be combined. Or, you may pay in full payment now rather than in installments.

This is also the last chance for students to decide if they would like to go to Senior Week as we need a guaranteed number of who will be attending. No additional purchases for Senior week can be made after January 15th, 2022.

The google form for the second installment is linked below, as well as the presentation slide for how to pay Senior Dues. Once you have paid through RevTrak, please upload the receipt on this google form.

Thank you!

Aaditya Krishna Arun
with their first-place trophy.

Students at Harmony Public Schools overachieve our standards. Year after year, our students win countless awards from science fairs around the world.

Aaditya Krishna Arun, an 11th-grade student from Harmony School of Innovation – Sugar Land, won 1st place at a science fair in Brazil!

He ran against 755 research participants in the 2021 Mostratec Virtual International Science and Technology Fair in Brazil. This annual science fair presents projects conducted by young scientists in schools. Robotics, sports, and other cultural activities were part of the science fair as well.

“Earlier this year, I won first place in the Harmony Science and Engineering Fair in their Senior Division for Health and Medicine,” said Arun. “Based on this, I was nominated to participate in Mostratec 2021.”

With this accomplishment, his success would not be possible without the help from his Harmony mentors.

“I would like to genuinely thank Ms. Zadeh (GATE coordinator), Dr. Rustveld (Professor at Baylor), Mr. Centikaya (Project Director at HPS), and Ms. Faith (science teacher). They all motivated me to enter different competitions. They offered wonderful guidance and were supportive from my science project through the application process.”

Arun’s research experiment dealt with understanding the effects of excess fluoride on human health in groundwater.

“What inspired me to conduct this experiment was when I visited my hometown in South India,” said Arun. “With the excessive amount of fluoride in groundwater, this affects dental and skeletal defects, neurological problems, and pregnancy.”

People in his community in South India use groundwater for drinking, cooking, and other daily needs. According to Arun, access to proper water filtration is too expensive for these residents.

“This motivated me to develop an inexpensive dip bag-based biofilter to study the effect of fluoride on human health,” said Arun. “I discovered the effect of excess fluoride on pregnancy outcomes in women, specifically those in the Hispanic community.”

The goal of his study was to highlight the importance of implementing community-wide methods to reduce excess fluoride in water. This also helps bring awareness to women in the Hispanic community about the harmful effects of excessive fluoride consumption on pregnancy outcomes. As well as, developing an in-expensive filter to reduce fluoride in water just like the dip bag-based biofilter Arun invented.

This has not been the only recognized science experiment project he has conducted. Arun has won many other awards such as first place in the Houston Medical Academy and Harris County Medical Association at the Science Engineering Fair of Houston, third place award for the Medicine and Health Category at the Texas State Science Fair, and many others.

With all these great accomplishments, Arun is not stopping here. He plans to continue entering more science competitions and dreams of being part of the Intel and Regeneron science fairs one day.

As for his future career goals after high school, he plans on attending medical school to become a doctor to give back to his community. In the meantime, he wants to volunteer in hospitals in underdeveloped countries.

“My goal is to become a physician that specializes in pediatric psychiatry,” says Arun. “I am understanding of the challenges that kids can go through. I plan on making a difference in helping kids overcome obstacles and be successful.”

Dear future Mustang Parents,
As promised, attached is the link to schedule meetings with our counseling team and the copy of the presentation from our parent night event. Please make sure you select the 8th-grade section.

Re-Enrollment for current Harmony families who plan to return next school year is January 4-28, 2022.

Re-Enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year for Harmony families begins soon.

During this time of year each January, we ask families to complete a simple, online Re-Enrollment process, letting us know they’ll be joining us for another great year of learning and fun next school year, which starts in August 2022.

This simple step allows us to make sure each current student’s spot at Harmony is reserved for the following school year, and assess how many new student seats we have available for other applicants.

Re-Enrollment at Harmony Public Schools runs January 4-28, 2022. Look for more details in your email inbox, via Skyward, or on our Facebook page soon.

In the meantime, check out these 6 things families need to know about Re-Enrollment at Harmony Public Schools.

#1 – When is Re-Enrollment season?

For the 2022-2023 school year, re-enrollment will be January 4-28, 2022.

#2 – How do I apply for Re-Enrollment?

The preferred method for re-enrollment is through the student’s online Skyward account. (A link to Skyward can be found at the top of your campus homepage or you can simply click here.). Parents without internet and/or Skyward access may also request a paper re-enrollment option from their child’s campus.

#3 – What is the difference between Re-Enrollment and Open Enrollment?

Re-enrollment is intended for current Harmony students planning to stay at their current campus the following school year, or who will naturally feed upward to a new campus (e. from elementary to nearby middle school). Open Enrollment is for new students, or current students who wish to change Harmony campuses for personal reasons (ex. transferring to a campus closer to home).

#4 – If a student plans to stay at the same school next year, are they automatically guaranteed re-enrollment if they complete the re-enrollment process before the deadline?

Yes, so long as their family completes the re-enrollment process.

#5 – What happens if a parent does not submit their re-enrollment information before the deadline?

If a parent misses the deadline to complete the re-enrollment process, then the student will lose his/her reserved space for next school year and must apply during Open Enrollment, held November 1-February 10 each school year. To apply, visit www.HarmonyTX.org/Apply.

#6 – What does a Harmony parent need to do if they would like to stay with Harmony, but transfer to a different campus for the next school year?

If a parent would like to change Harmony campuses for the following school year, they must submit an application for the desired school at www.HarmonyTX.org/Apply.
