LOOKING AHEAD TO NOVEMBER

Minimum Day on November 3… Please Make a Plan to Vote

Please note that November 3rd will be a minimum day for all classes. We hope that this extra time on election day will make it possible for anyone who plans to vote in person to go and do that early.

If you have already voted please use this extra time to check, and encourage, that other people you know have a plan and go out to vote. 

Whether you’ve ever voted before, and no matter who you vote for, please make sure your voice is heard. Your children are counting on you!

GENERAL SCHOOL NEWS

High School Admissions Representatives Are Meeting our Students

The wonderful and talented Mr. Young (I’m a little biased) works very hard every year to have High School reps come to talk about their school and meet our students in person. Even over Zoom, admissions directors from most San Francisco private high schools have once again been impressed by the interest, poise and enthusiasm of our 7th and 8th graders.

So far students have met with admissions directors from: Bay School, University High, International High School, Lick Wilmerding High, Urban High School, SF Girls High School, Riordan High School, The Marin School, Sacred Heart, Jewish Community High School and Drew High. They still have visits from SF High School of the Arts, Convent and Stuart Hall as well as Midland School in Santa Barbara.
