The PFC funds many great programs that help our students and staff thrive! A few are spotlighted here:
Teacher professional development: Our teachers are one of our most important assets at Harvey Milk. There are many ways the PFC supports them but one way is by supporting their professional development. In 2017 and 2018, the PFC provided funding for Harvey Milk staff members to participate in the prestigious Reading Institute at Columbia University’s Teachers College. These Harvey Milk teachers returned to our school community with skills, ideas, and knowledge that will help our students thrive as readers and writers.

The Breakfast Project: Founded by HMCRA parent Joyce Lin-Conrad, this innovative and ground-breaking non-profit organization integrates cooking and gardening classes with social studies education. In the 2019-2020 school year, The Breakfast Project will bring hands-on culinary arts to all students in all grades at Harvey Milk.
SFArtsEd: We are proud to support SFArtsED’s Artists-in-Residence program, which places passionate artists with teaching experience inside dedicated public schools. This program brings talented dance, music, and visual arts instructors to Harvey Milk for weekly classes.
