Welcome to Mr. Harmon’s Class!
Hello Future Students,
I hope you all had an amazing summer and enjoy the last days of it. I’ve been keeping busy with my lovely wife and our crazy dog Frank. We’ve been on some pretty fun adventures and have been traveling the Midwest. I’ve also spent some of my summer on the golf course caddying for a friend of mine who is a professional golfer! It’s been lots of fun walking the golf courses with him and watching him crush a golf ball
I would also like to tell you about where I’ve come from. I am originally from Fort Wayne, IN but moved to Illinois so that my wife can go to medical school. She’s going to be a doctor! My wife Molly and I got married last summer and moved here in October. I’ve been a teacher for 5 years. I taught for 4 years in Fort Wayne at Blackhawk Christian School and was a 7th & 8th grade Math/Bible teacher. I also taught 1 year at Clark Middle School in St. John, IN and was a 6th, 7th & 8th grade math teacher. Now I am extremely excited and blessed to be a part of Harvest Christian Academy and can’t wait to start this new school year.
Fifth grade is a special year! It’s the last year you will be in lower school! We will have tons of fun learning about science, influential people in our nation’s history, and the life of Jesus. We will also read lots of fascinating stories, solve challenging math problems, and even go on some field trips. I cannot wait to get started! I hope to see you at our Meet the Teacher Day on August 13th between 10:30 and 11:30. The picnic starts at 11:30. I am praying for a great year of learning and new friendships!
Mr. Jake Harmon
