Field Day 2016:
Field Day is Tuesday May 31, from 8:30 to 12:00 at Kathy Lund Park in Rocklin. Field Day is for all students in grades K-6. Students go to the park instead of school and spend the day participating in fun games and activities. Students will stay with their classes and rotate through game stations that are managed by parent volunteers. This year they will also get lunch by Chick-fil-A. Please consider signing up to help with Field Day. It takes about 75 volunteers to make it happen! This is a great way to get more volunteer hours for those who need them. You can click HERE to sign up.
Please pick up your student medications by June 2 at noon. We CANNOT send medication home with the students. Any medications not picked up by June 2 will be disposed of. Thank you.
Lost and Found:
Our lost and found is growing. Please make sure to check for your student's lost stuff before it's too late. Any items not picked up by June 2 at noon will be donated to charity.

Information on State Ballot Initiative to Close Charter Schools:
As many of you may be aware, there is currently a statewide ballot initiative that, if passed, would close all charter schools in California. The California Charter School Association has been following this initiative, and has sent out an update that we shared with you all via email. Please click HERE to find out more about how to support all of the charter schools in California. Harvest Ridge Cooperative Charter School supports a parent's right to choose the best education for their child, and we sincerely hope that all families in the state of California continue to have this right.
