Hang with the kids during lunch and recess to keep school safe and fun! The district is hiring more noon monitors, but in the meantime you can help out the teachers, staff and kids by being around during this critical time mid-day. Feel free to guide an activity on the yard, anything from pogo stick jumping to sewing circle.
When you arrive at school for a noon monitor shift, check in at the office to get a name tag. You will be directed to either the cafeteria or the school yard depending on needs that day.
The students and staff appreciate your help!! As a token of thanks the PFC is providing $10 Starbucks gift cards to anyone that volunteers, be sure to get yours in the office when you fill in as noon monitor!
Please come celebrate our Annual Winter Peace Assembly with the Harvey Milk Civil Rights Academy students and staff. Each class will share a song, dance or spoken word performance that highlights the holiday season and/or the importance of standing together in peace.
Students in the YMCA after school program will have the option of eating the after-school supper and students who are picked up directly after school should be fed a snack or dinner at home or elsewhere before the show. All students should be delivered back to school in their classrooms 30 minutes early (5:30pm) to have a chance to practice before going on stage. Students will be released to their families after their performance. Please help them to be good audience members. Parking will be available in the yard at 5:40pm on a 1st come, 1st served basis due to limited capacity.
HMCRA is currently seeking 3 Noon Monitors to help cover lunch recess and cafeteria time. We have recently had 3 different Noon Monitors move on to other positions and are short for coverage every day during lunchtime. Please see the job description and refer anyone that you think would be a good fit. Thank you!
The need for Noon Monitors is very urgent so if you as a parent/ guardian can come and volunteer next week and/or next semester, you are more then welcome. The hours are 12:15-1:50, but the priority is from 12:30-1:30. Please talk to Mr. Machado if you are interested.
