Principal’s Message

Dear Harmon Family,

I have made the decision to retire from South-Western City Schools as principal of Harmon Elementary School. I am deeply honored to have served as principal at Harmon Elementary School for the past 15 years. It has been a great privilege to work alongside the most hardworking and dedicated staff members at Harmon, their strong commitment to educating our students and their value of education is exceptional. Also, I extend my heartfelt appreciation to our parents and families who have supported and promoted our school, which made Harmon a special place for our students to learn and grow. You all exemplify Harmon’s Vision: “A Community of Learners Reaching New Horizons.”


I am very proud of our outstanding academic achievement and parent engagement over the past 15 years. Harmon Elementary School earned its 4 STAR rating on the 2023 Ohio School Report Cards, in addition to ODE Momentum Awards 3 years in a row and Soar Award, which recognized our increasing academic achievement on Ohio State Tests for the past 15 years. I am humbled by the tremendous parent participation in our annual Family Engagement Nights. We have averaged approximately 500 parents during the events.  I am also humbled by the huge participation in our annual Fall Festival.  We have averaged approximately 1000 students, parents and community members during the events.

For the past 15 years, it has been such a joy to see hundreds of children develop and grow as confident, successful young people and I am very proud of the part I have played in making Harmon Elementary School the family-oriented school that it is today.

I am privileged to have worked with committed educators, involved parents,and some of the kindest and most hardworking students in South-Western City Schools. Our students have been a gift to me, and I will hold their sweet smiles close to my heart as I move through the next chapter of my life. 

I am profoundly grateful to every single one of you for the strong support that you have given me over the past 15 years.

Again, Thank you so much for your strong support as always and have a great summer!

With Sincere Gratitude,

Michael Wang
