Auction Night Details – Mar 7, 2015

Speakesy-logo1letters-noBG
Final Roaring 20s

On March 7, this year’s Auction2015-lettersonly-noBGauction theme A Night at the Speakeasy will bring back the glitz and daring of an upscale speakeasy. Like Marlene Dietrich in a tuxedo.  To help everyone get glamorous, we will sell top hats, feather boas, and a few pearl necklaces.

Come early for the champagne and fresh oyster bar! Stay late: after the bidding is done our house band for the night, Olivia and the One-Night-Stands, will do a hot jazz set. The evening’s signature cocktail is a classic prohibition drink – a Tom Collins. The dinner buffet will feature food that was popular in the 1920’s.

Don’t miss this swell event to support our school!   To learn more about the auction and purchase tickets click: A Night at the Speakeasy!

2014-2015 School Tours and School Video

Thank you for your interest in Clarendon Elementary School. Please watch our school video which includes much of the information that we cover on school tours. There’s more information below the video as well.

Clarendon’s school site is home to two distinct programs: a general education program (also known as “Second Community”), and the Japanese Bilingual Bicultural Program (JBBP). Admission to each program is handled separately by the EPC, meaning that when you apply to Clarendon, you choose to apply to the Second Community program, the JBBP program, or both. Tours at Clarendon will cover both programs equally and simultaneously.

Our tours should offer you a glimpse of what campus life is like—for students and parents—at Clarendon.

Tour Schedule
All tours start promptly at 9:45am and last approximately one hour.

Fall 2014 tour dates and registration form.  Tours will be held Oct 9, Oct 17, Oct 24, Nov 13, Dec 5, Dec 11, Jan 9 and Jan 15. All tours are held from 9:45-10:45am and will include information about both the Japanese Bilingual and Bicultural Program (JBBP) and the Second Community (SC) programs. Please sign up for one tour date only. Please cancel your reservation if you are unable to make that tour date (you can make a new reservation on a new day) to make room for another prospective family. We look forward to seeing you at Clarendon!

Sign Up Now!

Please note that our tours are for adults only. Babies in carriers are fine, but please refrain from bringing preschoolers or toddlers as we do not have care available to them during tour times. We appreciate your cooperation.

Both Clarendon JBBP and Second Community will be represented at the Enrollment Fair in November as well.

District Deadlines & Information

Enrollment deadlines TBA.  Enrollment at Clarendon and all San Francisco public schools is handled by the school district’s Educational Placement Center (EPC). You can read about school placement on the school district’s website.

Application Forms
Click here for the SFUSD Enrollment Application form.

Resources
The nonprofit Parents for Public Schools is an excellent resource for navigating the enrollment process. PPS is a network of public school parents; it is not funded by the school district and so maintains its independence. They host helpful enrollment workshops in all parts of the city.

Welcome New Parents to the 2014-2015 School Year!

Are you new to the Clarendon Second Community site?  We have two sites; one public site (secondcommunity.org), and a site for parents only at school-pages.com/clarendon.

To get access to the parents-only website, you first need to register.  Click here to submit your information.

Once we verify your information, we’ll send you an email on how to log in.

For questions, feel free to contact us at support@school-pages.com .
