This Week's News

Halloween Parade

This year's Halloween Parade was a spooky, spectacular time! Thank you to everyone who came to cheer, clap, and sing along. We love seeing our big community come together, especially in costume!

7th & 8th Grade Going to see Frankenstein on Stage

This Thursday, November 2, our 7th & 8th graders are in for a special treat - Ms. Mara is taking them to see a production of Frankenstein at Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory School. Students must arrive to school on time, as the class will be leaving promptly at 8:30.

6th Grade Goes to the Mission Cultural Center

Every year, Maestra Lourdes brings our 6th grade class to the Mission for a special field trip to the Mission Cultural Center to see the altars for Dia de los Muertos, and this year that field trip will be this Friday, November 3. Students will see murals in the mission and place their lunch orders in Spanish, from a local taqueria.

Students should bring a water bottle and should wear comfortable walking shoes and weather-appropriate clothing.

Only a Few Spots Left for Thursday's Open House!

We have a few spots left for our Open House this Thursday, November 2. If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about the best little school in San Francisco, sign up here.
