What are you grateful for?

Today, for our Friday kick-out, New Harmony students and staff took time to say what we were grateful for this week.

Today, a group of students began a bi-weekly opportunity to learn archery through a program at NORD’s Joe Brown Park in New Orleans East. Students will learn bow-shooting skills and range safety with a certified archer instructor.
