NEXT WEEK’S NEWS

7th and 8th Grades Hike Thursday, November 29

Weather and air quality permitting, the Thursday after Thanksgiving, our 7th and 8th graders will spend the day hiking along the coast to Land’s End and then down to Ocean Beach. After a lunch break they will hike back. This day will help prepare them for the next week when they are in Yosemite Park with NatureBridge and is the perfect time to break in hiking shoes.

Please make sure your children have hearty lunches to help them through this busy day.

Let’s Not Forget Others… Canned Food Drive is Underway

This time of year there are many ways to help and care for those less fortunate than we are. The San Francisco Rescue Mission has dropped off a food collection barrel in the office.

Canned foods, cereals, rice, pastas and paper goods would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
