NEW TIME! Wednesday, May 15, 2:30-3:30pm
Come visit your child’s classroom during the last hour of school on Wednesday May 15 (2:30-3:30 pm) to explore our K-5 scientific excursions! Research projects, experiments, and hypotheses galore! The students have been hard at work over the past month to get everything ready to present. Expect the use of scientific vocabulary, in-depth knowledge on their topic, and the excitement that comes with all of that!
Staff Appreciation Week is just around the corner. The week of May 6th is National Teacher Appreciation Week, but we changed the name to include the whole amazing staff at HMCRA.
If you like to contribute, please sign up here. We ask for donations food, coffee and treats for our wonderful HMCRA staff. This is our chance to show our gratitude to everyone who does so much for our children every day of the school year!
Link to SURVEY!
SFUSD has adopted a new way of rating school quality, and your opinions will be a part of that system! Starting TODAY, we will be asking you to fill out a short survey about our school. This survey is very important to helping us understand how we can improve the school, so please be sure you fill one out before April 26th! We want to hear every family’s voice! Thank you!
Read this flyer, return proof that you have taken the survey to your child’s teacher and your child will get two Penguin Praises, you will be entered into a drawing for $100 cash, and the first class to reach 100% participation will get $150 Scholastic dollars to buy classroom library books. Take the survey here.
