Weekly Family Digest

Current and past editions of the weekly family newsletter from the Leadership Team.

September 18th

Hello New School SF
Last week we celebrated kindness and random acts, large and small, were spotted everywhere! We also hosted Back to School Night as a whole school- which was a first for us, and it was amazing to see so many families eager to learn more about curriculum in their child's' grade level and all the happenings at New School SF. We are excited to follow up Back to School Nights with a series of coffee chats to touch on specific themes.
If you missed Back to School Night, the presentations are now up on our website, as well as a recording of the whole school presentation. This digest brings important news about lunch ordering, an Exploremos day camp, coffee chats, and our upcoming first Home and School Council of the year. 

Happy Rosh Hashanah to our community members ushering in the Jewish New Year this week! 

Somos New School,
New School SF Leadership Team

Hola New School SF
La semana pasada celebramos la amabilidad y hubo actos de amabilidad grandes y pequeños por todo lado! También tuvimos nuestra noche de regreso a escuela como una escuela entera, la cual fue nuevo para nosotros y nos alegró ver a tantas familias interesadas en conocer mas sobre el currículo y todo lo que hacemos en New School SF. Estamos listos para darle seguimiento a la noche de regreso a escuela a través de una serie de charlas de café para hablar de temas especificas.
Si no pudo llegar a la noche regreso a escuela, las presentaciones se pueden encontrar en la pagina web. Este boletín le trae noticias importantes sobre pedir almuerzo, un programa de exploremos para el 9/29, charlas de café, y nuestra primera reunión del Consejo Hogar y Escuela. 

Feliz Rosh Hashanah a nuestra comunidad que da la bienvenida al año nuevo judío esta semana. 

Somos New School,
Equipo de Liderazgo de New School SF
