Preschool children continued the unit on family this week. GMI Magenta children used the drawings they created of their families as a basis and guide for conversations. They displayed all the drawings on the ground in assemblea so all the children could see. Then, teacher Megan Reed laid down a piece of tape to divide the floor into two. Collaborating all together, they sorted each drawing into one of two groups: those that depicted only the immediate family that you live with, and those that... Read More

The artwork includes: 1. The Tree or flowers of Kindness words; 2. Our personal calendar in Italian; 3. Our responsibilities at home and school. 4.

Buongiorno La Scuola, As we all navigate the Covid-19 pandemic, the fires around us, the political unrest, and the much-needed change that we have ahead of us, I think it is important that we continue to focus on our vision of educating La Scuola children to meet the needs of the rapidly changing world.

Ciao La Scuola, Last night, we received a letter from the San Francisco Health Department stating that we can now submit a letter of intent to apply for the waiver to reopen our K-5 program.

There is still no path for middle school but we will keep you informed as soon as we know. We want to make sure everyone is going to come back when... Read More
