Million Fathers




Dear Hayward Unified School District Fathers and Father Figures, 


Please join us for the districts annual Million Father March on Monday, August 28, 2017 and walk your child or a child to school on the first day. The Million Father is an opportunity for men of all colors to show their commitment to the educational lives of their children on the first day of school and throughout the school year. Since the March began in 20014, fathers and other significant male caregivers across the county and around the world have been asked to take their children to their first day of school. The Million Father March is the beginning of a year-long commitment of men to their children's educational success.

Parent Corner

Your role as a parent is critically important to your student’s success.  Using the agenda to write down assignments is a necessary part of that success. Every evening, please sit down with your child to make sure that he or she is writing down the homework and test assignments. Every day in every class students should write down the assignment—if there is no homework, the student should write “NO homework”. At school, teachers are emphasizing the importance of using the agenda. Remember that organization and using the agenda are the path to good grades!



Su papel como padre es muy importantismo a su hijo!

Usar la agenda es necesario para el exito académico de su estudiante.  Por favor, revise la agenda con su hijo diariamente.  Todos los dias en todas las clases, sus hijos deben de escribir las tareas—si no hay tarea,  deben escribir “NO HAY TAREA”.  En la escuela, los maestros tambien destancan el significado de usar la agenda.  Favor de recordar a su hijo que la organización y usar la agenda son caminos a las calificaciones buenas!

Calling All Volunteers

When schools, families, and community groups work together to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and like school more.” That’s the conclusion of A New Wave of Evidence, a report from Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (2002).

At Bret Harte, we are a family and we can't spell success without "U". Please click the link to sign up as a volunteer for school events, programs, and activities.  Click here==> Parent/Student Volunteer Signup Sheet
