• Harding Elementary is a community school. 

    Our community school director is Ms. Shanna Potter.

    A community school brings resources and services into the school to remove barriers to student success.

    Harding's community school lead partner is the YMCA of Greater Erie and our corporate partner is Eriez Magnetics.

    One of the greatest features of our community school is being able to meet the basic needs of students and families immediately through our on-site resource room. In our community room, we have school supplies, winter items, clothing, health and hygiene supplies and more to ensure that our students have what they need to come to school ready to learn. We never want any of these things to stand in the way of our students being at school each day. If you need help, just ask! Everyone needs help sometimes and that is what we are here for. We are a family at Harding - so don't be afraid to reach out.

    To request items from our resource room, you can contact Ms. Potter directly or complete the online request form at: http://bit.ly/hardingpantry
