Principal’s Message to Families

Good morning,

I hope this email finds you well.  Happy October.  As the 9th week begins, we are excited for all the new activities coming our way.  Clubs are still being formalized.  Students should reach out to Ms. Castro for filing the necessary paperwork.  We are also emailing today about intramurals!  Sports and more sports will be coming our way from 3:15-4:15 pm.  We are recruiting teachers to support the different programs.  Details coming soon.



Needs to Know

We have a phone number for attendance. Our attendance line is now (925) 410 - 4465. Please remember to call into the attendance line ANY time that a student is not on campus. The new Main Office phone number is (925) 410-4444. 

Clubs - Mrs. Castro met with over 30 students on Thursday who are interested in starting clubs. Students are well under way in starting clubs.   If students are interested in initiating a club, they will turn in the packet for approval at the next ASB meeting on Tuesday, October 19.  Here is the Club Packet Document that will need to be completed. 

Mrs. Castro will be offering Access sessions on Tuesday, October 5, Thursday, October 7 and Tuesday, October 12 to help students complete the club document. 

Intramurals - We will be hosting an access session on Thursday, October 14 to discuss intramurals for the fall. 

Dear French Families! We would like to introduce Ivan Zambrano who will be teaching the French and Wheel classes until the end of semester. He came to us from Amador and will be working with the other site’s French teachers to move our French courses forward in instruction. Please welcome Mr. Zambrano to our Harvest Park team! Thanks!
