Congratulations to everyone who has completed the first step in the SFUSD enrollment process and to those who have provided support. I don't know how I would have survived the past few months without all of you. You made me think outside the box. You made me laugh when I was on the verge of tears. You made me realize that San Francisco is a special place to raise children. I feel so lucky to be here and to be a part of this community. Thank you.
So here's my list. I'm already wishing that I put Flynn above West Portal and that Buena Vista was above Miraloma, but it sounds like the order is irrelevant. Also, please keep in mind that this is only one list. These are by no means the top seven schools in San Francisco. These are simply the schools that seem like the best fit for Alice and my family.
Alice Fong Yu (Imm C)
West Portal (ImmC)
Leonard Flynn (ImmS)
Buena Vista (ImmS)
The blog will continue. I'm bringing Alice to a private school screening tomorrow, so I'll report back. And I have more juicy topics to cover: what do you think Gavin Newsom needs to know about San Francisco schools, what are the presidential candidates' viewpoints on eduction, how to prepare your child for kindergarten (feel free to suggest topics). Come March, let's hope that there won't be much to talk about because all of us will have gotten our top choice. If not, the blog will provide support.
Finally, please pat yourself on the back. Drink a glass of wine. Let out a loud "Roar!" This isn't an easy process and we should all be celebrating now that we have a huge part of the it behind us. Thanks again. Best, Kate
