Rooftop Family:

A huge thank you to teachers Vanessa Contreras and Aaron Weis for their organization of our 8th grade trip to Yosemite! Also, a special thank you to our Rooftop parents who helped out with driving and chaperoning: Dwight Moore, Sophie Stockholm, Tom Sprinkle, Christian McMurray, Diane Arias, and Linda Mattos. The trip was truly a special experience and one that our students will remember for the rest of their lives.

We are beginning a new practice of notifying families of their child’s classroom assignment the week prior to the start of school. This change gives us flexibility in balancing classes in the event new students are assigned over the summer, or if any other unexpected issues arise which would necessitate movement of students. This change brings us into alignment with the practices of other schools in the district.

Please note that teachers and staff have been directed not to share their tentative class lists and we appreciate your support in being patient until all families are notified prior to the start of the school year.

Finally, please read this memo the SFUSD Curriculum and Instruction Division in regard to assessment and the new Science standards:

With much gratitude,
Jeff & Tiffany
