HMCRA Community Survey

HMCRA Community Survey

Don’t forget to fill out our HMCRA Community Survey!

Our in-house survey is one of the most important tools at HMCRA to help us plan for the future. The combination of surveys from teachers, families and students provides valuable insights into our school programming, operations, culture and climate. It informs our practices, provides longitudinal data and influences our decision-making. I do make an effort to read every single comment so your feedback is very much appreciated.

Completing the survey is so important for our HMCRA community and our budgeting priorities and I rely on all of you to take a few minutes to complete it.

Please complete the HMCRA Community Survey by Friday, February 22nd – one survey per family.  

If you have any questions, concerns, comments, or celebrations, please feel free to contact Principal Mr Machado.

Become a Drag Show Contestant! (Or Better Yet, Convince a Friend)

at The Café, 2369 Market St.

Calling all contestants! Want to drag or know somebody who does? Sign up as a contestant [https://canyoudrag.com/i-want-to-perform/] to raise funds for Harvey Milk, and drag your heart out. Contestants will receive a dedicated page on the event website to share and fundraise. To get started as a contestant, email a photo headshot and short bio to Jeff Fassnacht at jeff@sobend.com

The TOP FIVE FUNDRAISERS will become performers at the event and compete for a chance to win the title of Queen of the Castro. The top three fundraisers will receive extra points toward their final competition score. The five top contestants will be matched with a local drag queen to have their makeup done and then perform a talent of their choice (lip-synch, singing, dance, etc.).

Happy New Year & Welcome Back!

Welcome back to school and to an exciting spring semester.
Let’s start the New Year with some great news!

A huge THANK YOU goes out to our enthusiastic parent and student volunteers who collected donations at the SF Gay Men’s Chorus holiday concerts in December. Together, our dedicated volunteers collected $27,801 in donations for our school! And the SF Gay Men’s Chorus has generously donated another $2199 – making our grand total $30K for this incredible fundraising effort!

The results of this amazing community partnership will directly benefit our educational programs and enrichments in the 2019-20 school year. What a great start to 2019!

Winter Peace Assembly

Thursday, December 20
5:30-7:00pm, Harvey Milk Cafeteria

Please mark your calendars for the annual Winter Peace Assembly where each class will present a rehearsed piece onstage to celebrate winter and peace! It’s a wonderful community event to close the calendar year and hopefully many of you can attend!

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 at 5:15pm (teacher may request an earlier drop off) 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.

SFUSD logo

Dear SFUSD Community,

SFUSD schools, central offices and after school programs will be closed tomorrow, Friday, Nov. 16, due to ongoing concerns regarding air quality both inside and outside of schools and offices.

As you know, the air quality in the Bay Area has remained at red (unhealthy) throughout the week. Some staff and students have reported that the ongoing conditions have also contributed to poor air quality indoors.

We understand that closing schools places a burden on some of our families, and we want you to know that we have given this decision careful consideration.

All school sites will be closed for Thanksgiving Break and will reopen on Monday, Nov. 26. Central offices will be open next week Monday, Nov. 19 through Wednesday, Nov. 21.

Please stay safe.

Dr. Vincent Matthews, SFUSD Superintendent
