Academic Enrichment

HBGSD ACADEMIC ENRICHMENT TIPS AND IDEAS

During the state-mandated COVID-19 school closure, the Harrisburg School District recommends the following ways to enhance your child’s academic growth while at home.

  • Devote a specific time each day for your child to work on academics while at home.
  • Add academic tasks to your child’s daily routine will help him/her regain literacy and mathematical skills very quickly upon return to school.

Harrisburg School District’s academic team will continue to provide additional tips and ideas for learning at home each Tuesday and Thursday for the duration of the school closing. Thank you for working with us to make the most of the time that you have your children at home.
