Community Club

The Bret Harte Community Club (BHCC) is a parent run organization (Bret Harte Educational Association Tax ID# 77-0342966).

Our goal is to support our school (teachers and administration), students, and parents.

With a large and enthusiastic group of parent volunteers, BHCC is actively involved in organizing and financially supporting various activities and events inside as well as outside the classroom at Bret Harte. 
We organize, sponsor, and fund classroom and school Instructional Needs and Supplies, Technology, Project Cornerstone, Award Nights, Teacher Appreciation, 8th Grade Promotion. BHCC also organizes and manages parent volunteers during lunch at the SNAC Store and Lunch Carts, Student Bronco Nights, Cultural Fair, and School Library.

Financial Support

Our financial support of the school is made possible through the generous contributions of parents during our “Build a Better Bret Harte” Donation Drive that starts at the beginning of the school year. Donations are accepted and welcome any time of the year, and for every $250 you donate during the months of September-December your family will be entered into a monthly drawing for a $25 Amazon gift card.  The sooner you donate the more chances you have to win. As an added bonus, if you donate before Friday, Sept. 28, your students will be entered into a drawing for lunch time pizza party with 5 of their friends.  If you’d like to make a donation please use the Membership Form. Forms are also available throughout the year in Student Services. You may also donate online with PayPal by using the link below.  Please contact Stefanie Bellucci at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) with any questions.

Volunteer & Get Involved
2018-2019 Bret Harte Volunteer Sign-Up Form
By filling out this form, you are informing the BHCC of your volunteer interest area(s).  If none of the boxes are checked, you will be placed on the BHCC Member/Volunteer List and will be informed of available volunteering opportunities as they arise.  You can pick and choose what fits your interest and availability.  Thank you for offering your valuable time to BHCC’s volunteering community.  Without your help, the events, activities, and services hosted by the BHCC would not be possible. 

We would like to encourage all new and returning parents to take an active role in the Community Club. If you would like to volunteer for any jobs on Campus you need to be a ‘Cleared Volunteer’. This is a district wide policy.

To become a ‘Cleared Volunteer’ you need to go through the ‘New Volunteer Process’ or the ‘Returning Volunteer Process.

  • Returning Volunteer Process
    You are considered a returning volunteer if you have been fingerprinted by SJUSD after August 2010 and you have a current TB test on file. Fill out a ‘Returning Volunteer Form’, you can get the form from Belinda Anstey, secretary in the office and turn the form back into her and she will submit it. It takes a few weeks (up to a month) to be ‘Cleared’. We will notify you once you are ‘Cleared’.

  • New Volunteer Process
    If you have never been fingerprinted by SJUSD (or you did it prior to August 2010), the process is a little longer. You need to fill out the ‘New Volunteer Form’, you can get the form from Belinda Anstey, secretary in the office. You also need to get a TB test and make an appointment with the San Jose School District to get fingerprinted, call Mona at 408-535-6000 x15013 right away (as they get backed up).  Take the signed Volunteer Form, TB results, and $10 cash (they don’t take credit cards) to your fingerprinting appointment at the district office.

  • We encourage you to join us at our monthly Board Meetings.
