Walkathon Friday March 16
This year’s walkathon is raising money for an end-of-year celebration with Sterne School! They have reserved a location at San Francisco’s Verdi Club. We are asking that each family donates $20 to help offset the price of tickets for our students. The Sterne School will provide appetizers and drinks, and there will be a DJ and dancing from 7-10pm. Due to the weather, we will be holding an indoor games day and pizza party instead of walking around Stow Lake.

Student Walkout March 14th

All students and full-time staff participated in the national 17-minute walkout to protest gun violence and promote gun reform. We walked up to 19th Avenue and held signs, which were supported by passers-by. The students were engaged and serious, and we were very proud of their activism.
