Help with 12/13 School Tour
We only have two school tour dates left! We’re in need of parent volunteers to help welcome prospective parents tomorrow morning, December 13th. It’s easy! Just meet in the lounge area in front of the library and put on a name tag after the morning bell rings. Our visitors have lots of questions. Help us to answer them and tell them what a great school we have. The tour runs from 9:00-10:30am, and you’re welcome to stay as little or as long as you like. Hope to see you there!
The Next Walk and Roll to School Day is Tomorrow (12/13)!
Sunset is one of many schools all over San Francisco participating in monthly 4 Fun Ways to School days. These events promote health and physical fitness for your family, and help your students get off to a great start in the morning and meet other Sunset families in your neighborhood!
We will meet at the northeast corner of Kirkham & 37th Avenue at 8:25 sharp. You may also choose your own route. Please remember to cross streets safely, and have fun!
