Week Seventeen! The fall semester is winding down so quickly! After today, we just have seven more school days before the winter break!
As many of you know, our Assistant Principal Tiffany Kendall-Obayashi is giving birth to a baby girl anytime soon. We wish her (and her husband, Doug) well on her delivery and the beginning of the exciting world of parenthood. As she goes on her maternity leave (till April, 2013), we are fortunate to have Ms. Virginia “Gini” Dold, a well-respected and highly regarded (retired) SFUSD school administrator, coming to Rooftop to take her place. We shall surely miss Ms. Kendall-Obayashi.
The Winter Workshop was at the Mayeda campus last week. Our youngsters had a great time making special gifts for their loved ones. Thanks to all our teachers, staff and volunteers for making the event another fun and successful one for our students.
Just a reminder: Our Chorus members are all geared up to stage their annual Winter Holiday performance at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, December 14th, at the Burnett Multi-Purpose Room. Please come, support, and cheer on our students who have been working hard to mount this concert. Let them share their holiday spirit with you through their gift of music.
Please come to the PTA General meeting at 6:00 p.m. at the Multi-Purpose Room just before the Chorus’s Winter Holiday Concert on Friday, December 14th.
