Whether you are new to Harper or have a new Kindergartener starting Harper, START HERE to review the process of getting your child enrolled for school and get most frequently asked questions answered.
To schedule a tour of the school, a formal Tour Request Google Form is to be submitted as per District 39. http://www.wilmette39.org/
Tours are not available on non-school attendance days during the school year, and 48 hours advance notice is requested prior to a tour. Please bring your driver’s license to the tour for sign-in purposes.
We look forward to showing you our wonderful school!
The Harper Decoder is a great primer to explain what is what at Harper.

The Parent Association for Student Services in District 39 (PASS39) is a parent organization committed to supporting parents of children with disabilities. PASS39 members help enable and foster information exchange and partnership between parents of children who receive support and services in D39 schools and the district staff.
Edukits is an annual program that is a great opportunity to purchase the following year’s school supplies and have them waiting for your child in his/her classroom on the first day of school. This convenient service gives you the chance to spend an extra day at the beach during the summer and not running around buying a long list of school supplies at multiple stores!
Online ordering for the pre-packaged Edukits takes place each Spring. However, if you’re new to Harper or you missed out on ordering your kit this Spring, there’s still a chance to secure a kit and save yourself the hassle of school supply shopping this Summer. You can purchase a supply kit through EduKit however it will be shipped directly to your home vs. the school. Also, a $20 shipping and special handling fee will be added to the cost of the supplies. To purchase a kit visit http://www.EduKitInc.com, click on “Find My School” and enter “Harper” to find the options available. The deadline to purchase supply kits for the 2020/2021 school year is Friday, August 7th.

The Community Review Committee (CRC) has annually addressed a specific topic with the goal of advising the District 39 Board of Education on how to improve the teaching, learning or management aspects of D39. CRC members are parents, administrators, teachers and citizens. The CRC develops recommendations that are presented to the Board of Education in June. By late summer, the Superintendent of Schools provides recommendations based upon the presentation. Early in the following school year, the Board decides how to proceed. Recent topics include: Social Responsibility (CONNECTED), 21st Century Learning and Green Schools.
