Strive at the Hive

Download, Print & Color Stinger for your Summer Vacation!

Calling all students, teachers, and staff of Harrisburg Elementary!
We would love for Stinger, our Harrisburg Elementary mascot, to travel with you this summer!  Download a copy of Stinger, print and take Stinger with you across the world this summer.  Once you reach your destination, take a picture of you and Stinger.  Please share the experience in at least one of the following ways:
  • bring the photo to class with you the first week of school
  • have an adult family member post a photo of you & Stinger on our Harrisburg Elementary Facebook page by replying to our summer travel message
  • have an adult family member post a photo of you & Stinger on Twitter with the hashtag, #hesglobal and tag us @harrisburgelem
Together, we can take a journey of a lifetime!  Stay tuned for photos of your teachers' travels this summer! 

Continue the Learning Over the Summer!

Now students can continue their learning over the summer! ALEKs and Dreambox tools to support math and iReady to support reading will be open to students all summer long! Students use our homepage and log in just like they do at school.  This is a great way to beat the "summer slide".  

School Supply Shopping Made Easier!



The Harrisburg Elementary School PTA is pleased to announce that we are offering pre-assembled Student Supply Starter Boxes grades K-5 for the upcoming 2016-2017 School Year. These Starter Supply Boxes will include grade specific student supplies requested by teachers at each grade level. Save time, money, and visits to multiple stores for back to school shopping by getting your list of school supplies all in one box!

There is a short window of opportunity to order online from our supplier’s website so act now!

Log onto: May 16th through June 24th 10:59pm. Once you have logged in, enter OUR school account number 88348, your information & payment method for the grade level you wish to order for the 2016-2017 school year! Supply Boxes will be available for pick-up at our Back to School Open House Night in August or in your child’s classroom on the first day of school. Student Supply Starter Boxes are only available for purchase online during the dates listed above. Prices are listed below and kit components may be viewed online when ordering. Multiple boxes can be ordered!



1st Grade


2nd Grade


3rd Grade


4th Grade


5th Grade



Purchasing the Student Supply Starter Box is completely optional. PTA is offering this as a convenient service to help our families & teachers. These supply lists were created and approved by HES staff, not Cabarrus County Schools. This is the most accurate supply list for Harrisburg Elementary to follow.  Some supplies may need to be replenished throughout the year depending on how quickly your child uses them. Pre-assembled boxes cover Core Class needs only, and teachers may request additional “optional” supplies such as tissues, hand sanitizer, flash drives, etc. What a great, convenient way to be prepared for the 2016­-2017 school year!

*Please note that purchasing the Student Supply Starter Box is separate from, and does not replace the Student Supply Fee ($10 per year) charged by CCS to all students. You may also click here to download the school supply list for the 2016-17.

Thank you for all the donations to support the work of our students!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of the parents, grandparents, friends, neighbors and students that generously supported our Triple Crown fundraiser!  We are excited to announce that we not only surpassed our goal of $45,000 but with matching gifts have topped $52,000 to date. All of these gifts will go directly into the PTA budget this year to purchase needed items for our school. We are proud of all of the classes and think it is amazing what we can accomplish when we work together! Thank you so much again for all of your help - HES families rock!! Students who raised money for the school enjoyed a dance party or magic show!
