ARE YOU READY FOR 7TH GRADE????

http://www.shotsforschool.org/

 

You will need proof of a TDAP vaccination before you will be allowed to attend school!

TDAP protects you from Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis. Pertussis is whooping cough. It is very contagious and can be fatal to babies.

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. 

SPACE AVAILABLE IN BEACON AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAM

YES! Glad to take on new students.

See Fin or Nathaniel after school to ask questions about the program and grab a form to sign up.

SUMMER READING PROGRAM 2014 @ SFPL

SUMMER READING 2014.jpeg

DETAILS TO COME

shared-savings-logo-7.png

Shared Savings provides not only the incentive for increasing energy efficient behavior in our schools, but the tools for making sure it happens. Bringing in that curriculum piece, allowing students to participate in and learn from our efforts to make our schools more efficient, will help educate a generation of energy conscious citizens.  In the age of climate change, that is an extremely valuable outcome.
