Parent essays: Why I love my school

The SF K Files is inviting parents to write essays about their children's schools. The stories should be no longer than 375 words (and of course they can be shorter) and should answer the question: Why do you love your school? You can talk about your school's community, special events, teachers, gardening program, whatever you like. We will run all essays on The SF K Files. Please email submissions to: thesfkfiles@gmail.com.

For those who are interested, we could submit your essay for consideration as a Perspective on KQED radio. Here are the guidelines for submission.

  1. Please post these essays soon! Applications are due in just a few short weeks, and these essays could be helpful in deciding among a variety of similar schools. I look forward to reading these!

  2. I'm wondering if folks are reluctant to post here because of the high degree of snarkiness on this site?

    I adore my kid's school but I am reluctant to post here because it is tiring being on the receiving end of attacks.

  3. Kate, how about posting the parent essays, but disabling the ability to add comments? It's great to read the essays, but I'm not looking forward to the backlash that many essays will spark.

  6. To be honest with you, I don't want a lot of the parents who post here to show up at my kid's lovely school.
