It is with sadness we say good bye to Ms. Owens. Her last day at Harding was Thursday, Feb. 8th. She was a huge force for change and improvement here at Harding. She is leaving us as principal to be the Excecutive Director of Elementary Education for Hammond Schools. So we will be sharing her with all the elementary schools in Hammond. We will miss her.

A letter from Ms. Owens

I am writing with news to share with you – the families and community of Harding Elementary…

Last week I accepted a position as Executive Director of Elementary Academics.   As you can imagine, it has been a very emotional process for me in making this decision. But in the end, I feel that this is the right decision in my professional career.

I want to thank each and every one of you for all your support, and for entrusting me with your children for the past 3 ½  years. I am honored and feel so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to be part of the Harding’s Community.  I have so many wonderful memories of my time at Harding and I am sad to say goodbye.  During my years here, I have fostered relationships with many of you and I will cherish the memories and friendships I’ve made during my time.  Harding has been a very special place for me and I will miss everyone.


Although it’s hard to say goodbye to the parents and adults, the hardest part of leaving is saying goodbye to the children. I have grown so attached to them over the years. I have loved watching them grow up into amazing young people. Please give them a hug for me and let them know how they touched my heart and life. I treasure my memories of them all.

Please accept my sincere thanks and appreciation as I enter into a new learning experience of my own.
