It is difficult to believe that the start of the 2014-15 school year is upon us. It is my hope that you are enjoying the pleasures that only the long days of summer can bring. Here at Harborfields High School, our faculty and staff have been working hard to plan and prepare for the new school year. We have as our goal to make the experience of every student at our school the best it can possible be.
The first of many activities planned for this school year is our freshman orientation evening followed by our traditional Buddy Program. This year's freshman orientation is scheduled for Monday, August 25, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. At this meeting, freshmen and their parents will be introduced to staff members, teachers, administrators, counselors, class advisors, and parent organization representatives. This formal orientation will be followed by our Buddy Program on Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. The Buddy Program pairs each incoming 9th grade student with an upperclassman to serve as a personal guide for the day and, quite possibly, a friend for life! I encourage all 9th grade students to attend.
Please use our online forms to register for our Buddy Program. Incoming 9th grade students, register here. Upperclassmen wishing to volunteer for our Buddy Program, please register here.
I am looking forward to welcoming the newest members of our HF Family, the Class of 2018, to Harborfields High School! Please know that you have my very best wishes for a restful summer and a successful school year.
Harborfields High School Student Presents Summer Research
Harborfields High School Junior, Abigail Wax, spent several weeks this summer performing scientific research at Stony Brook University. After devoting countless hours to her work, Abigail was able to present her research at the prestigious Garcia Symposium in front of an audience of renowned researchers from around the world. Her presentation on the effect of graphene on gap-junction formation in human cervical adenocarcinoma cells was well done. Abigail participates in the Harborfields High School Science Research Program under the direction of Mr. Pinto who also attended the presentation. Congratulations Abby!
