District Advisory Council members wanted
The Newcastle district is asking each school administrator to invite parents to join their advisory team. We are looking for a primary rep and an upper grade rep who would commit to attending the district meetings that happen once a month. This is a great opportunity to share with NESD our parent perspective for HRCCS and to gain perspective from the district to bring back and share out to our team. Please contact Bridget if interested. This is also another way to log volunteer hours!
Friday drop-off is at 8:30am, classes run 9:00am-12:00pm. Click the green button below titled, After School Enrichment Opportunities, to be taken to a list of enrichment ideas and survey links. Together we can continue to build meaningful enrichment opportunities.

FLAVORS OF FALL COOK-OFF
We had a great turnout at the cook-off! Thank you for the wonderful company and food. I loved watching everybody crowded around the tables talking. We raised $1,200 for field trips, but more importantly, grew closer as a community. Congratulations to all of the winners!
OCTOBER MONTHLY MIXER
We will do a family friendly out and back hike from Rattlesnake Bar on October 20th right after school, weather permitting.
Keep them coming! They are due on October 27th. We will take the average per student to calculate the winner.
That time of year is quickly approaching! Brittle is being added this year. If you didn’t get a chance to taste it at the Learning Conference, it’s delicious! Order forms will go out on November 3rd. Orders will be due on the 14th and delivered on the 16th. Since the order due date is so close to the delivery date, late orders WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.BLAST PIZZA FUNDRAISER
On Wednesday, November 2nd between 5pm and 9pm, Blast 825 Pizza will host a
pizza night fundraiser for Harvest Ridge. Conveniently located in the Target shopping center right off of Sierra College, Blast 825 Pizza will donate 30% of the pizzas purchased November 2nd to our school. Details to come next week!
The council has been busy organizing events for this month including the Halloween Dance on October 27th for Grades 6-8 and the DO Homecoming Parade float design. This year the theme for the float will be Space Mountain.
TB Clearance & Fingerprint
Just a reminder that all parents who are on campus during school hours and working with students, MUST have their fingerprint and TB clearance through our District. The fingerprint form is available HERE or in the school office. We LOVE having you a part of our school day, so please get fingerprinted and TB cleared and come join the fun!

Has your student told you about earning hawk wings this year? We give wings out when we see our students showing character traits such as integrity, citizenship and kindness. Ask them about how they have earned wings so far this year.

Our students continue to learn about growth mindset in daily lessons. If you haven't had the opportunity to dig deeper with this concept at home, read this article from Huffington Post. The three questions posed are a great conversation starter at home. Bravery, kindness and the courage to keep trying when things get tough are attributes we often see in successful people. These are the attributes we want to foster and affirm in our Hawks!
