The Harrington W.AT.C.H. program is designed to highlight, celebrate and recognize our students when they consistently “own” their words, actions, thoughts, character and habits towards others. Harrington staff members nominate students for our WATCH recognition ceremonies. The vision of this program is building a sense of belonging and school community with expectations of doing what is right and owning your choices. Student achievement in all areas of academics as well as the fundamental foundations of citizenship is recognized in a number of ways throughout the year.

9/11 MONUMENT DEDICATION
Former Harrington Middle School student, Audrey C., dedicated a September 11th Memorial at the school on Friday, September 10th. The idea to create a monument honoring victims and heroes of September 11 was originally conceived in her 8th grade social studies class with Mrs. Rotella. Audrey was tasked with detailing a plan to design a commemorative tribute to the victims of September 11th. In her plan, she envisioned a memorial to be displayed at Harrington Middle School for future students, staff, and other community members to appreciate. That vision came to a reality four years later as Audrey proudly stands with her completed monument. Her seventh social studies teacher, Dr. Mortimer, helped in writing a grant from the Mount Laurel Education Association to receive funding that ultimately paid for her monument.
