A heartfelt THANK YOU from the students and staff at Harwood Union High School to everyone who donated to the Class of 2018 for the beautiful gazebo (below) which now adorns the Harwood school grounds as a tribute to our classmates Eli Brookens, Liam Hale, Mary Harris, Cyrus Zschau and our friend Janie Chase Cozzi, who we lost last year. Our fundraiser has now ended. We exceeded our goal and raised over $17,000, which we used to purchase the gazebo, make it wheelchair accessible, add landscaping and lighting, and maintain it. We are so grateful for the support and generosity of our extended community. You are a big part of what makes us Harwood Strong!

The film, entitled "Coming to the Table:Dialogue for Classroom Transformation"  documents  how teachers can move their classrooms from  teacher-directed to  teacher- facilitiated to student- driven classrooms. It features Harwood students learning from one another utilizing the " Harkness  Table" methodology.
