Principal's Message

Dear Harvey Green Community,

The first month and a half of school has flown by. Thank you for your support in the reopening of school. While I know this time has been stressful for everyone we have really worked together to support the children and staff back into the classroom. Please remember that all must wear masks when on campus.

In September, we completed our annual Walk-a-thon in our PE classes. Thank you to Mrs. Phillips and Mr. Casem for all your hard work on organizing the event. Thank you to the families who have donated. If you have not donated to your classroom, you still have time! Please send your donations with your child, bring to the office, or donate on our website.

October is an exciting month for students. More information will be coming out soon regarding Fall events from the school and PTA. Please join me on Wednesday, October 6th for International Walk and Roll to School Day. More information can be found below.

Thank you again for your support. If there is anything we can do to help support your child(ren) or family, please feel free to reach out at any time.

Thank you,

Ms. Johnson

Please do not let your children out of the car or into the car in the middle of Gatewood Street. This is extremely dangerous and we do not want anyone to get hurt. While it is important that all students arrive to school on time, it is even more important that everyone is safe. Please do not do this for any reason, if you are dropping of your children you must use the carloop or park against a curb.

We look forward to walking and rolling with you!

Counselor's Corner

Happy Fall Harvey Green,

October is national Bullying Prevention month and I will be visiting classrooms to present on this topic, what it is and how to be an upstander. We want our students to feel safe and also help others feel safe at school. If you're interested in continuing the conversation at home around anti-bullying, please visit this info page that shares great tips! This month, I will also be presenting a lesson on the Zones of Regulation. Throughout the year, your students will learn what "Zones" are, coping strategies, and more! Check in with your student and have them share what they've learned so far :) If you have specific questions or would like to discuss a concern, please email me at dhuang1@fusdk12.net or call (510) 656-6438 ext. 41255.

PTA Reflections Contest

Explore the Arts and Express Yourself

National PTA has a long-standing commitment to arts education. The Reflections program provides opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which boost student confidence and success in the arts and in life.

Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. This 50+ year-old program helps them explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.

The 2021–2022 Reflections theme is I Will Change the World By…

Students submit their completed works of art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts.

Students participate in the appropriate division for their grade: Primary (Pre-K - Grade 2), Intermediate (Grades 3-5), Middle School (Grades 6-8), High School (Grades 9-12), Special Artist (All grades welcome).

Please submit your entry by clicking on the link below.


If you have questions about the program, please email harveygreenreflections@gmail.com.
