Something truly unique and special took place in front of the Harrison Library last week. “Light it Up Harrison Blue” was a spectacular, town wide kick-off event for The Week of Respect, an annual endeavor observed by school children throughout the state of New Jersey to underscore the importance of treating every human being with respect and dignity.

Joined together with members of the community—Harrison Mayor, Hon. James A. Fife; Harrison Public Schools Director of Personnel, James P. Doran, Ed.D; Superintendent of Schools, Frederick G. Confessore; members of the town council and board of education; Harrison Public Schools’ students from all grade levels showcased the theme of “Respect” through song, dance, poetry readings and an artwork display. At the conclusion of the event, the Library Park was swathed in a brilliant blue light, as were all of the public schools.

"Self-respect and respect for others is the foundation for all that we accomplish in our schools. We are confident that our students' performances and presentations highlighted the atmosphere of respect for others that we cultivate each and every day in our schools", said Joan McNichol, Director of Student Life and Services for Harrison Public Schools.
