Principal's Message

Welcome to Harrison Street Elementary!

Kim Castiglione

 Happy 2019-2020 school year!  This year we are looking forward to cherishing each day with one another.  Our mission is to inspire and guide our child(ren) to their maximum potential by personalizing instruction, engaging learners, and growing minds.  We take this mission and vision very seriously and work tirelessly to educate the whole child.        

     As a mother of two, I know the trust that is put on us to care for children and we respect the effect that each staff member has on our HSE learners.  Please know that we work very hard to make our school a vibrant community where our students and families feel welcome and safe. We recognize the awesome job we have to help parents “raise great kids” and we promise to cherish our students each day.  We thank our families for sharing them with us!  

     It is vital for our success to foster a positive partnership with strong communication.  There are many ways to stay informed on the happening of our school(s). This year we are happy to use our “one stop shop” for communication through the use of a platform called Schoology.  You are automatically enrolled into your child’s building page and homeroom upon enrollment in the district. Please click any of the blue highlighted links to go to other communication tools immediately. 

Big Walnut Local Schools Tools:

  • Like our district Facebook page (@BWLSD)

  • Visit our district website (bwls.net)

HSE Tools:

  • Harrison Street Elementary Building Page through Schoology

Classroom Tools:

  • Homeroom “Courses” through Schoology          

     Please know that we are here to help in any way we can.  It’s going to be a great final year at HSE before it transitions to an early childhood center next year.  Here’s to Happy Harrison Street and 2019-2020! 

With Fondness,

Kim Castiglione
