Harvest Park students show their school spirit as classes end

Leadership teacher leads effort to demonstrate togetherness

What does geometry, leadership and passionate school spirit all have in common?

According to Ken Rocha, principal at Harvest Park Middle in Pleasanton, it includes over 1,230 students united to support breast cancer awareness in October of 2013 and school spirit in June of 2014.

Under the guidance of leadership teacher Greg Dankwardt, students rallied to find a meaningful way to express their beliefs in a unique way.
