Retreats

This year’s retreats gave our students the opportunity to participate in a variety of community building activities and academic preparation. After retreat, students came to school on Monday fully transitioned from summer and ready for the school year. Check out some pictures from the mentioned activities on our school’s Facebook page.

Volleyball Team

Try-outs are over and the girls’ volleyball team roster is up! We are extremely excited to have such a strong and passionate team. All Leadership High School sports games will be posted on the MaxPreps website and game-day reminders will appear on Facebook.

Back to School Night

Join us at Back to School Night, this Wednesday from 6:15-8:30. We will serve dinner beforehand in the cafeteria from 5:30-6:00. The main schedule will begin at 6:15. You will receive a copy of your student’s schedule, visit their classes, meet the teachers, and learn about their upcoming school work. Back to School Night is a great way to get connected. We hope to see you there!

Family Meeting Week

Family Meeting Week is your opportunity to check in with your child and their advisor regarding their academic progress and goals. Your child’s advisor should be contacting you to schedule a meeting. Family meetings happen twice a year, once at the beginning of each semester. Please note that this is an early release week, with school ending at 2:05pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and 12:05pm on Wednesday.

Forms

All families MUST submit an emergency contact form and a free/reduced lunch application. The emergency form is vital to keeping your student safe and family informed in the event of an emergency. If you have not submitted an emergency contact form, please ask your child to pick one up from the main office. The data gathered from free/reduced lunch application is the main way that Leadership receives funding from the San Francisco Unified School District and the state. We understand that not all families qualify, and that not all students want to eat school lunch. Due to the financial impact these applications have on our community, however, we ask every family to do their part by submitting an application. You can submit your free/reduced lunch application here, or pick up a paper application in our main office.

Donations

Leadership High School is a thriving community! We are grateful to accept donations such as tissues, hand sanitizer, Clorox wipes, feminine products, and first aid items. Donations can be dropped off at the main office.

If you have items for the Parent Press, please contact Office Manager, Emma Cizek, at ecizek@leadershiphigh.org.

Thank you!
