Principal's Message


Joe Niemantsverdriet


Good Afternoon,


We have been enjoying students back in the building.  Thank you to our PTSA for providing the teachers and staff with a wonderful lunch and all our students and teachers with water bottles.  In this update you will find information about picture days, yearbook, and tonight's PTSA meeting.


Water Bottles

Thank you to the Harding PTSA for providing water bottles to all our students and staff to use with the bottle filling stations the district has installed throughout the building.  Students attending in-person have received the water bottles over the last two school days.  Students learning through either the remote learning model or e-Learning LKWD can pick their water bottle up at the Harding Middle School office.  If your child is planning to participate in picture day, it may convenient for them to pick up their water bottle at the same time.


Picture Days

We will be holding student pictures during two days to ensure students attending on both Gold and Purple days have an opportunity to participate in the picture day.  Students utilizing the remote learning model or participating in e-Learning LKWD (APEX), may participate on either day by checking into the office upon arrival at the school.  These students will then be directed to the photo location.

The dates of the two picture days will be February 18 and February 19.



Harding is producing a yearbook this year! We know it is not a typical year, but we still want to celebrate all the students at Harding. Whether your child is remotely of physically in school, we want to encourage you to email pictures to:


Pictures can be any taken from the summer to now to throughout the year, since the due date has been pushed back. It can be a photo of your child at their workspace, a sporting event, on the porch playing an instrument or just a great picture of your child. We really want to remember the positive moments during this time.
