Come out and support the Harvest Robotics Team, the LaLaLaLaLlamas, as they compete for a spot at the NYC regional tournament for the US FIRST Tech Challenge.
Students expanded their boundaries during our seven-day January Intensive courses by negotiating with delegates from over 70 countries at Model United Nations at Yale University, shooting their own original film or computer animation project, or learning to build a fire or outdoor shelter in the winter outdoors during Harvest survivor.
In Musical Theater, students danced with disciplined abandon to Footloose!. Deeply thoughtful conversations flourished including: “Should we be ‘tough on crime’ [in CORE reading The Condemnation of Little B]?” “What did we see and what did we not see [at a visit to Columbia University]?” “Why do we experience shame and what can we do about it [in a Humans' discussion on Flowers for Algernon]?”
Students took part in the rich resources of our city including visits to the Rubin Museum, the Museum of Natural History, Chelsea Piers, East Side for Roundtable Presentations (like Gateways), the Museum of the Moving Image, the Metropolitan
Museum, Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, Rutgers University in New Jersey, and took part in guest workshops from artists of all stripes including a John Jay Professor who connected students by telephone to Mumia Abu-Jamal for questions, and Capoeira, the Brazilian martial art dance that emerged from fighting slavery.
There was a high level of engagement, teacher ingenuity and student creativity on display as students presented their final pieces to the community and gave life to the idea of Creative Contribution. Intensive creates a distinctive memory in the regular patterns of school and helps wake us up to the questions and possibilities of life.
Take a peak at some of the work done by our students!

To Harvest Collegiate High School Parents:
The Harvest Collegiate High School PTA is excited to announce our annual Winter Solstice. It will be held on Thursday, December 19th, from 5:30 to 7:30. The program will be as follows:
5:30-6:45: Potluck dinner
6:45-7:30: Chorus, dance, and percussion performances
Please follow this link to sign up to bring your favorite dish to share with the Harvest community! You can also sign up here to help with decoration/set up; to take a turn serving; or to help clean up. Please also be aware that we have at least student with serious food allergies; it would help if everyone writes the ingredients for their dishes on an index card that can be displayed with the food. Also, parents with allergic offspring, please help by bringing at least one dish that your child can eat!
We would also like to announce our Book Drive! If every family brings one book to the Solstice, the drive will be off to a great start. The staff and students will review the donations and either keep them for the Harvest library, or will take them to the Strand, where Harvest has an account.
We look forward to seeing everyone on the 19th.
