Harvey Milk Hero Squad

We Are About to Kick Off!  

Heroes are never alone, they band together!  Our school has decided to take on blood cancer and our mission is to help find a cure. Be on the lookout for more information in the upcoming days as we kick-off our Hero Squad program on March 1!  

By participating in Hero Squad, your student will learn about teamwork, bravery, social awareness, and will become part of a Squad that supports blood cancer patients, letting them know they are not alone.  Hero Squad emphasizes the importance of social and emotional learning and gaining the experience of helping both children and adults in their fight against blood cancer right in our community.  

Your student can get started early by visiting HeroSquad.org, and our schools webpage https://events.lls.org/pages/gba/Harvey-Milk-Civil-Rights-Academy-2021. Help your student develop goal-setting, self-motivation and organizational skills!  Every hero needs a squad!  

We hope you enjoyed the Winter Holiday. Just a reminder, there is no school on Monday 1/4! School will resume on Tuesday, January 5.
