TODAY’S NEWS

It’s Great to See Everyone

After our week of remote learning, it’s been lovely to see everyone back healthy and happy. Thank you all for sending in the Covid Test Results and for keeping your families safe and sound. Our guidelines of distancing, masks and hand washing along with increased ventilation, have been keeping students and teachers safe at school. Thank you again for your diligence.

THIS WEEK’S NEWS

Calling all Talent!

Please submit videos this week.

We are working on a video talent show and would love to include your talented children.

We are asking everyone interested in joining the show, to submit a one minute video to our Drop Box by April 30. Using an iPhone video format will be the easiest, but other formats could be used.

Catherine Kelley (Pilar’s mom) has generously volunteered her time to put this show together for us!

The Drop Box link is: https://www.dropbox.com/request/AE0VrUocSgF0PfN1SnBi

Eighth Grade Bridge Hike, Thursday, April 29 

The traditional 8th grade Earth Day Hike through the Presidio and across the Golden Gate Bridge will take place on Thursday. Please make sure your 8th grader wears good walking shoes, has a jacket, a water bottle, a hearty lunch and a mask. It is supposed to be sunny, so sunscreen is a good idea!

MAY NEWS

High School Information Night for 7th Grade Parents is May 4 at 7pm

All 7th grade parents are invited and strongly encouraged to attend this informational meeting about the high school application process. Now is a great time to begin talking as a family about goals and plans for high school. Don’t let the admissions process become overwhelming. Join the meeting and get some basic information to help you start planning for this next step in your child’s education.  A zoom link has been emailed to parents.

Students will get a lot of support for this process next year, so this meeting is for parents only.
