AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

ASP Spring Break Camp

Please let us know if your family would be interested in attending an ASP Spring Break Camp (Tuesday- Thursday, March 28-30). We're currently doing our best to sort out a staffing plan (in case there is enough student interest) so it would be helpful to know if folks are interested in attending. Please fill out this brief form to let us know if your student(s) would be interested in attending.

ZOOMX-PLEASE USE FOR ALL ASP PICK-UPS

Please remember to utilize the ZoomX app for all ASP-related pick-ups. Once you've downloaded the app, it's very easy to use: simply open the app, select the child(ren) that you intend to pick up (includes carpools), and then hit <start>. The school will then be informed of who's coming through the line (with advanced notice), and for what variation(s) of pick-ups. The app also allows us to time-stamp student exits, which is very helpful in regards to safety and liability.

*In the coming weeks, ASP may attempt to remove the staff "spotter" on Broadway. We'll be sure to notify parents if this occurs.

2017 SUMMER PROGRAM- Register now!

We're proud to bring back San Francisco's premier academic and recreation summer program. Last year's program welcomed nearly 350 students from 45 Bay Area schools and we expect to grow yet again this summer. Though it's hard to believe, it is already time to start thinking about summer plans as many camps begin to fill up by mid-late March. The summer leadership team is currently finalizing staffing plans, student schedules, and program offerings.

Session 1: June 19th- July 7th (*No camp on July 4th)

Before we hit pause for spring break, I want to take a few moments to share some gratitude and appreciation. First up, a big thank you to Sheree Pirie and the entire Celebrate Spring committee who helped organize a very successful Celebrate Spring weekend. From the boutique, to the luncheon, to the fun & festive Gala, each event was beautifully orchestrated...and this would not have been possible without the help of all of the volunteers.

In addition, thank you to Lauren Haswell and all of our room parents for providing an elaborate spread of delicious food for our faculty today.

Lastly, I want to wish you and your family a restful and joyous break. I hope you get an opportunity to slow down and spend quality time with your family. We will see you back on Monday, April 3.

Elena De Santis, Athletic Director
  • Fencing: The Cubs & Knights beat Lincoln High School 5-4 on Tuesday, and look forward to today’s bout against Urban. The Cubs are led on and off the court by Captains Erika Wong, April Matsumoto and Bea Gee who motivate the team with their great leadership.
  • Badminton: The badminton team has welcomed back SHHS alum Devin Harvey as a coach whose energy and knowledge of the game is bringing new life to the team. Off the court the team is led by captains, Mackenzie Maly, Sarah Hong, Diego Corea, and Kayla Man. On the court our mixed doubles team is off to a great start --Sarah Hong and Diego Corea are 5-1 in league..
  • Track: The Cubs took 4th place with 45 points. We set a total of 49 personal bests, and a special shout out to Bea Williams who set a new school record yesterday in the high jump at 4-08.00.
  • Soccer: The Cubs start off with a 3-4 record and, more importantly, are coming together as a team, playing team soccer, building from the defense and moving the ball, with purpose, to our offense. Our top scorers are Pilar Ballesteros and Ally Arora. Watch for them as we take a break from league to play College Prep today.
  • Swimming: The team has grown in numbers since the first day of practice, doubling in numbers since last year, totaling at 31 student - athletes. While being an individual sport, the team has bonded together and pushed each other in every practice and meet. The group is led by captains Bella Kearney, Masha Kozlova, John Abbott and James Futrell. Bella and Masha lead by example, bring the team together and make everyone feel like a valued member. John and James rallied troops on the boys side and brought in five new boy swimmers within the past three weeks. The coaches are proud of the team's determination and work ethic. Yesterday, the Cubs and Knights had a dual meet vs the Urban Blues and the University Devils. In their second league meet of the season, both the boys and girls took home their first victory over the Urban Blues. The team swam some of their fastest times to come out on top of the Blues 141 to 54.

Summer Service Options. Some parents have been asking me about quality summer service programs. I offer the following suggestions:

As we come near to the end of the year, please ask to see your son’s service record. Students ideally should complete 25 hours of service/year if they are not involved in an ongoing service project. Juniors are expected to have the service commitment completed by the end of May. All Freshmen students record their service to seholo.com and you may see their progress by asking your son to log in to his account. I will provide a service record for all upperclassman when requested.

There are many opportunities to serve and they are shared with the student via email and noted on Haiku.

Reminder: Students have access to all service events on Haiku/PowerSchool.
