Tzedakah - In all of our education programs, we ask our students and families to participate in Tzedakah. This year, as a school, we voted and determined our Tzedakah will go to Larkin Street Youth Services. This important organization helps to empower young people to move beyond homelessness - and is San Francisco's largest nonprofit provider for young people experiencing homelessness. Please talk to your student about the importance of Tzedakah, send them with Tzedakah to contribute if possible (no matter the amount), and ask questions about what we're doing in your student's Ed Program to continue to teach them more about this important organization throughout the year.

Next session: Wednesday, Jan. 9
