To All Harker Parents,
Upcoming Harker Parent Connect Events (see list below)
Here are the late winter and spring offerings for the Harker Parent Connect series.

Harker frequently hosts, sponsors or shares parent education events for our families to learn about and discuss important topics relevant to the raising of informed, healthy and happy children. These Harker Parent Connect events are noted in the main school calendar as “(HPC).” You can customize your calendar settings to select the HPC sub-calendar, and then you’ll be able to see them all at a glance.

We will send periodic Harker Parent Connect emails to all families with the dates compiled for the coming months so you can plan ahead. Details about these events are in the calendar item and/or will be outlined in emails. Attendance at these events is optional. For more social opportunities organized by grade level parents, look for the “Parent-Organized Events” in the calendar denoted with a little puzzle piece icon.

As more events are scheduled, we will add them to our HPC listings. The list below includes the slate of presenters for the Peninsula-based Common Ground Speaker Series. Harker is a member school of the Common Ground consortium, so all presentations are free to you.

I wish everyone a wonderful new year. Do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.
