HPMS Parent Information Letter (sent 8/2/18)

Dear Parent and Guardians -

Here is some important information about the start of the 2018 school year for your student(s). Please read this entire email as there is several new items.

 

NEW THIS YEAR:

COMPUTERS  - This year we will be rolling out 1:1 devices.  Your student will receive his/her device during the first week of school.  Please print and bring the attached PUSD Device Agreement to  Walk-Through Registration.  Thank you.

 

BINDERS  - Harvest Park will supply every student with basic supplies (including: binder, dividers, paper, pens, eraser and pencils) so that we can minimize backpack weight and help our students to become more organized.  So there is no need for you to purchase any of these items to bring to school, your son/daughter will receive their ‘supplies’ the first day of school.  

 

PE CLOTHES - Harvest Park had to change vendors for our PE clothes, so our uniforms are slightly different from last year.  If you purchased PE clothes during the last two years, you do NOT need to buy new clothes this year. Sample sizes of our new PE clothes will be on display at Walk-Through Registration.

 

FLEX PERIOD - We are very excited to be starting our FLEX periods (Tuesdays and Thursdays) in the fall.  This system will help ALL students to have opportunities for reteach and enrichment. This FLEX schedule will not affect the start and ending times on these days. More information about FLEX will be coming during the first weeks of school and will be available on our website.

 

YEARBOOK:

To purchase a yearbook, go to www.yearbookordercenter.com and enter our school code 7726.  8th grade parents, congratulate your 8th grade student and express your pride and love with an ad in the 2019 yearbook.  Please look for more information soon.
