Harrison Football is Playoff Bound!

Football Helmet

The Blue Tide is headed to the postseason. That alone is borderline miraculous for a program that hasn’t won five games in a season before this year since 2003 and haven’t been to the playoffs in 27 years.

Environmental Club

Environmental Club ​Spreads Awareness

The Environmental Club and Mrs. Sophie Ellison recently partnered with The Water Project, an international community outreach group, to raise funds to build fresh water wells in developing countries.

During the month of November, club members collected donations during lunch periods and distributed information and bracelets to spread awareness of the shortage of fresh, safe drinking water throughout the world.

The entire school -- along with local businesses like Kearny Shoprite -- came together to support this cause in a big way. All four classes and faculty together raised $620 -- with the junior class alone raising over half of this amount.
