Welcome to New HRPA Staff:
We are beyond thrilled to announce the official hiring of two new HRPA teachers. Chelsea Brumfield will be joining us as our new 4th grade teacher, and Jessica Alva will be joining our Upper Academy team! They both come with great experience in project-based learning, classroom management, and methodology. We are excited to have them join our team!
SB277 and SB792:
As I am sure many of you are, HRPA is actively following these bills as they move through the Senate and the House. We want to assure all of our families that we do not take this issue lightly. There is some language in the current iteration of the bill that suggests independent study programs may not be impacted. We will keep you posted as we learn more.
I personally want to extend a huge thank you to all the families that came out for Open House Night, who supported our school at the Book Fair, and who make our school a wonderful community. The night was a huge success! If you didn't get a chance to purchase your child's portrait, you can still do so next week for only $10.
Wagons West in Fourth Grade:
Our fourth grade students visited Wagons West Camp (Old Sierra Historical Ranch) this past week. Wagons West is a living history camp that has served as a resource for teaching about the Gold Rush and Westward Movement to California for over 20 years. The students learned all about the Westward Movement to California and Gold Rush history, and the got to experience life in the 1850's!
Family in Need:
We have a family that is in desperate need of transportation. Community members have set up a Go Fund Me account in hopes that they can raise money for a used van. If you'd like to help out one of HRPA's own, please visit http://www.gofundme.com/uu83u63u. I know it would be greatly appreciated!
