25 More Years of SLAM & Parents Take a Middle School Class - Highlights for Nov. 11 - 17, 2014


Last week Proposition C was approved by 73.4% of San Francisco voters, which means guaranteed funding for both the city’s Children’s Fund and the Public Education Enrichment Fund (PEEF) through the year 2041—without an increase in taxes. Among other things, Prop C sustains and builds on high-impact programs and services, including SFUSD’s robust and growing sports, libraries, arts and music programs (SLAM). This funding will help ensure elementary students have access to expert physical education (PE) teachers. One PEEF-funded PE teacher, Virgil Lockett, will be putting Monroe Elementary students through a workout focusing on flexibility, strength, and muscle and cardio endurance.

When:    Wednesday, November 12 / 10:20 – 11:20 a.m.

Where:   Monroe ES / (currently co-located at 1670 Noe St. school site)


A new middle school is opening up in the Bayview next fall, and parents want to learn more about it. Willie Brown MS (WBMS) is the result of a lot of community input and a lot of expertise. From parents to neighbors to educators to architects – hundreds had a say in what they wanted for this brand new school in the Bayview neighborhood. The school will include state-of-the-art technology for students; amped up full-scale science labs; arts, health and nutrition classes; sports; a 21st-century cafeteria; and even a full array of mental and physical health support. To help families and students learn more about the school and apply, SFUSD is providing families a chance to take a class resembling the type of class future WBMS students will take, after which they can have their questions answered and complete enrollment forms.

When:    Saturday, November 15 / 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Where:   Thurgood Marshall HS / 45 Conkling St.


All SFUSD schools and offices will be closed
on Tuesday, November 11 for Veterans Day
