Happy New Year! Harmony Science Academy-San Antonio wishes you and yours a joyful start to the new year!
Welcome back! The first day of the new Spring semester is Tuesday, January 6th.
Blood is traditionally in short supply during the winter months due to the holidays, travel schedules, inclement weather and illness. January, in particular, is a difficult month for blood centers to collect blood donations. A reduction in turnout can put our nation’s blood inventory at a critical low. January has been designated as National Blood Donor Month (NBDM) to encourage donors to give or pledge to give blood.
To see where you can donate blood in your area: https://www.donatingforlife.org
