Thomas G. Harris Elementary

Our Programs

Major Programs and Initiatives



The Harris Campus Improvement Plan will once again guide and provide an evaluation and monitoring instrument to gauge the effectiveness of our efforts. The Harris CIP will be used as a reference tool and will be revisited on a regular basis at parent meetings, Campus Advisory Council meetings, faculty meetings, grade level and vertical team meetings.



As one of the Austin Mayor's Healthiest Schools, along with our partners, we hope to encourage not only our scholars, but their families and teachers to have a healthy lifestyle.  Coach Dominguez and the CATCH committee strive to offer fun and healthy family nights as well as fun programs like Running club too.

As the newest member of the Neighborhood Longhorn Program many of our scholars will be able to attend University of Texas events and attend College fairs in alignment with our College Readiness goals.  The program provides the opportunity to envision attending college through incentives and event scholarships based on academic achievement during their years at Harris. The program also provides UT students, volunteers and staff who tutor and mentor our bulldogs throughout the school year.
