Superintendent's Message

Kamusta! That’s “hello” in Tagalog, one of the six languages most frequently spoken by our SFUSD students and families. We consistently encourage our students to be multicultural and multilingual. In fact, one of our graduate profile competencies is developing our students' global, local and digital identities. This month we're encouraging our schools to offer lessons and other activities to honor Filipino heritage and culture. In an upcoming family digest, we'll be sharing some ideas for you to learn and celebrate Filipino American History from home.
