Harp in Middle School

One of my 5th grade trombone players has also been taking harp lessons with a local teacher, and is really passionate about it. She’s really interested in dropping trombone and instead playing harp in one of our middle school ensembles next year, but I have very little knowledge of the instrument – that was one we didn’t cover in my music education program!! She and her family understand I won’t be able to help her as much in school on harp as I was able to do with trombone, but she still wants the experience of playing with the group on an instrument she loves. How can I plug her in? Can she read piano or violin parts in the orchestra? Or flute parts in the band? What are the friendly keys that a relative beginner is used to playing on harp? I’m not expecting to find any grade 2-3 literature with harp parts, but it seems like there must be a way to make it work! Thanks for any help or experience you may be able to share!
