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!

Welcome to Bret Harte Middle School!

“Where excellence is the expectation” 

My name is Seana Condit-Gordon and I am excited that I have been given the opportunity to be the Principal at Bret Harte Middle School.  I am proud to be a Made In Hayward educator, I attended school in Hayward K-12, and am a product of Bret Harte Middle School!

Our outstanding faculty takes pride in providing a positive, rewarding educational experience for your child.  We believe that strong partnerships between families and the school serve as the foundation for our students’ success.  We are committed to working together with families and community members in order to provide a rigorous standards-based academic program that engages students and prepares them to be successful in high school and beyond.  To this end, our administration and staff are dedicated to creating a safe, positive school climate.  We strive to foster meaningful partnerships with students, families, and community members in many ways throughout the year, and we stand committed to helping each individual student achieve academic success.  We challenge our students to reach their full potential by keeping your focus on learning, behaving in a positive, responsible manner at all times, and sharing their school pride by participating in school events and activities. 

 We welcome you to join us as we serve our students at Bret Harte Middle.  Go Bears!

PUENTE at Bret Harte

At Bret Harte, 'Got College?' is not a question, it is an expectation!  Bret Harte students and staff have been in the college spirit all year.  Last year we were selected as one of the first middle school PUENTE sites in the country!  We now have both AVID and PUENTE in our elective program.  Bret Harte students have definitely opened the doors to our students next steps in being college eligible and prepared.
