Dear SFUSD Families:  

 

I am writing to you on behalf of all of my colleagues on the SFUSD Board of Education.

 

Given the news of Superintendent Richard A. Carranza’s likely departure to serve as Houston’s new superintendent, the Board of Education has moved swiftly to ensure a smooth transition and continued positive momentum for our district.

 

While we begin the community process of searching for a new superintendent to serve our district, the Board of Education is united in choosing Deputy Superintendent Myong Leigh as SFUSD’s interim superintendent.

 

Mr. Leigh has been with SFUSD since 2000 and has successfully managed day-to-day operations and overseen key district initiatives. Our district has tremendous leadership throughout our schools and central offices. Mr. Leigh will be working with a great team at SFUSD.  

 

We are grateful to have had Superintendent Carranza at the helm for the past seven years--four as superintendent and three as a deputy. Under his leadership, SFUSD has maintained a focus on students’ academic growth through effective common-core aligned teaching and learning while also developing students’ social, emotional and physical well being. Our teachers and other have received more resources to do their critical work, including greater compensation, professional learning opportunities and access to technology.

 

The board takes seriously our responsibility to ensure the most capable and qualified leader for our school district moving forward. In the near future there will be a public meeting to discuss a selection process for the next superintendent of schools. Our national search process will be inclusive, transparent, and thorough.  

 

Without a doubt, we will prioritize finding a leader who shares our vision for ensuring every graduate is ready to succeed in college and careers. We will prioritize someone who has a track record of leading around our enduring goals of student achievement, access, equity, and accountability. And we will seek someone who can work with you and our entire community to move our district closer to our vision.

 

As we embark on the search for a new leader for SFUSD, input from our families is critical. Please check our website, sfusd.edu, for updates on future public meetings where the Board will gather input on the superintendent search and selection process.

 

All our school administrators are looking forward to greeting you and your children back to school on August 15.


 

Sincerely,  

 

Matt Haney

President, SF Board of Education

APG Rio Olympics Spirit Week!

 


 

 

Welcome to the first week of school! Get your kids ready! It is APG Rio Olympics Spirit Week!

 

This week ( Mon, Aug 15th - Fri, Aug 19th ) join us for sporting activities on the yard and library during lunch.

 

Here’s the schedule:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1dpNkB_wc27W2u1wVE9CAFpY7_geb_fd4oli_xKrp8F0/edit?usp=sharing

 

Come to the kick off rally during lunch on Monday, August 15th in the outdoor stage and find out more!


Here are a few highlights for this week:

 

1. It’s Color Wars!  Staff and students wear a different Olympic color(s). On Tuesday, wear GREEN!  On Wednesday, wear RED!  On Thursday, wear BLACK, and on Friday, wear BLUE and YELLOW!  Tops OR bottoms have to be at least half that color for it to count. For example, for Wednesday, one small red letter on a shirt wouldn't count but a shirt that is at least half red would count.

 

2. Each day, homerooms will have a tally sheet.  The homeroom in each grade that shows the most school spirit will win a bagel party!  *** TWO TALLY MARKS FOR STAFF WHO WEAR THE COLOR(S) OF THE DAY ** IF YOUR GRADE LEVEL COUNSELOR WEARS THE COLOR(S) OF THE DAY, EVERY HOMEROOM IN THAT GRADE GETS 2 ADDITIONAL SPIRIT POINTS. **

 

3. When students participate in an activity, they get a school spirit raffle ticket and every day, we will raffle off a prize per grade level.  Thank you PTA for donating APG schwag! Get raffle tickets from Ms. Kim, Nurse Judy, or Ms. Lai in the library.  There will be a Spirit Board that shows which homeroom is showing the most spirit throughout the week.

 

4. A representative from each homeroom needs to come to the closing ceremony on Friday, Aug 19th during lunch in the outdoor stage.  The HR in each grade that showed the most school spirit will be announced and they will get a medal, representing their HR!  Gold to the grade level that shows the most spirit. Silver to the next, and bronze to the next.

California Law requires you to have your TDAP Vaccination before 7th grade.

Check with your doctor to see if you have already received this vaccine. If not, ask your family to make an appointment NOW so that you can get it before school starts in the fall.

Please get your Tdap vaccination and submit proof to your counselor or Homeroom Teacher.

Students will not be allowed back to school in the Fall without proof of this vaccine.
