General Information

Open House
Harvest Preparatory Open house will be on August 1st for both Yuma and San Luis.

4-5 PM Kinder and Ninth-grade Orientation
5:30-6:20 PM First Session
6:30-7:30 Second Session

This is the time for parents and guardians to visit the school and classrooms.  You’ll have the opportunity to speak with teachers about your child’s schedules and the teacher’s classroom expectations. The main objective of our open house is to allow teachers and parents to meet and discuss highlights regarding students.
Instructors may explain their teaching styles and their methods of monitoring student behavior and progress in class. Parents will have the opportunity to mention some facts about their child’s behavioral problems if any, academic struggles, or learning style in hopes of developing a more individualized teaching plan and building that student/teacher relationship.
HPA wants to see positive results that are likely when teachers and parents work together to identify students’ needs and implement strategies to meet them. During this time parents can learn more about dual credit, CTE – Career Technical Education, student clubs, sports, after-school activities, child-care, and other extracurricular activities. Teachers, and coaches, are prepared to explain the different options you have for enrolling your children in these various events and activities.

First Day of School

See you August 3rd!  The first day of school is traditionally about creating routines and re-establishing the classroom community, but there is little that is routine or established about this year’s start.  Many students and teachers nationwide spent the last couple of years communicating via screen, rather than in a school setting. For some children in early grades, it has been a long time since they have experienced the structure and interaction of in-person school. For younger children, this year may be the first time ever that they have been asked to spend hours in a classroom.  Here at HPA, we are working to establish a positive transition back into the classroom for all grades, creating a safe and healthy learning environment.

Football Volunteers -Chain Gang

We are looking for volunteers with any football background or knowledge who would like to help with our Highschool tackle football chain gang –

 

What’s a chain gang?

It is the duty of the chain gang to mark possession on the field, utilizing the set of chains on the sideline. They must quickly realign the chains every time that an offense gets a first down and they also must be able to accurately place the chains so that the distances can be measured correctly.

 

Here is the schedule for HS Football home games where we will be needing volunteers :

 

If this is something, you would be interested in volunteering please contact me or Coach Mj
