Harris Hillman School is both participating in and benefitting from the Achilles Nashville Hope and Possibility Race in Nashville this year. This is a race that was started in New York City that they are bringing to Nashville this year. Some of our students will be participating, with assistance, in the race. When people register for the race, they can also designate Harris Hillman School as a beneficiary. For more information: Hope & Possibility Information/Registration
Disney's musicals in the Schools has been working with Metro Elementary schools for several years now. Disney sends professional teaching artists to work with students for several months culminating in a performance of an entire musical at the school and of one song at a TPAC showcase. This year, Disney is including Harris-Hillman!! Staff from Disney and TPAC toured our campus, met our kids, and have visions for adapting the musical, like using pre-recorded dialoge on switch activated devices. This way, kids and parents can experience a stage performance, complete with costumes and sets. We will keep you posted with more information as it is available. We do know we are performing Disney's The Aristocats!
