About Us

Welcome to Harding Elementary School!


For those families new to the area, we look forward to you enriching our school community, and for those returning families, welcome back and keep up the great work!

We had a very successful start to the school year. Thank you to all the students, families, faculty and staff for setting a tone of high expectations and genuine caring so all our students can experience success and growth this year!

Harding Elementary school is one of the two largest elementary building in the district. We are a Title 1 school, meaning we receive additional federal funds in order to support student learning and literacy. We have two full-time Title 1 reading specialists who work with students in small groups, as well as with teachers in order for students to target specific learning needs. In addition, we have a third reading specialist who works closely with the other reading specialists and works all day with additional students in small groups on their reading skills.

Our physical building recently turned over 100 years old in 2017! In the past, it has served the community and district for generations as both a Junior High School and High School. We have programs ranging from full-day K4 (Pre-K) all the way through fifth grade. It is always special to be able to watch our students grow from four-year old students to fifth graders preparing to transition to Lebanon Middle School (LMS).


To provide a safe and predictable learning environment where all students are challenged daily and given the opportunity to grow academically, socially, and behaviorally through classroom experiences and social interaction.


We will focus on the education of the whole child with attention to safe learning settings, healthy lifestyles, challenged and engaged teaching and learning, and district – wide support services. Together, we will initiate a learning improvement process focused on student needs highlighted by innovative thinking and a culture of learning. Professional learning communities will guide our improvement strategies and implementations. These learning communities will draw on the wisdom, experiences, and ideas of our students, teachers, administrators, parents, and community members to determine the best practices for becoming a high performing school.

Communication is important. Please do not hesitate to contact a principal, counselor, teachers, or staff regarding any questions or concerns. Our goal is to work together in providing the students the optimal learning experience.

It is a privilege to serve as principal of Harding Elementary. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about our school. Thank you for visiting our school web site!
