Greetings, Rooftop!

We are now on Spring Semester Week 3.   It surely is going by very quickly.  Have a most wonderful and joyful week!

Our Parent Teacher Association invites you to come to our monthly General Meeting at 6:30 p.m. on today, January 23rd at the Burnett Multi-Purpose Room.  I hope you are able to come and join us.

Our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade will be presenting their third North Star Performance with Marcus Shelby on Friday, January 25th. The theme this year explores the rich, diverse, and beautiful neighborhoods of our city.  Focusing on the natural history of San Francisco, students will recite original poetry, sing, dance, show art and film in telling stories about our environment, conservation, our neighborhood activism, and social justice.  The show will be at 6:30 to 8:00 at the Mayeda Multi-Purpose Room.  There will be a show for the student body on the same day after lunch. We invite all parents to come and enjoy the performance and take pride in the talent of our students.

I invite you to read our latest Art Newsletter (Jan 2013) to keep you posted on the exciting experiences our students have been engaged in lately.  For questions / comments, you can email our Art Coordinator Amy Balsbaugh at

Our School Site Council invites all of you to come to a Community Meeting as we put together our school Balanced Scorecard (the school’s single plan for student achievement) at 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 30th at the Burnett Multi-Purpose Room.

The Neighborhood Emergency Response Training (NERT) for the Rooftop community starts on Tuesday, February 5th.  If you are interested to join us, please register at the Rooftop website.
