May is National Mental Health Month (the 74th Mental Health Month this year!), so let’s talk about what it means in our LFSF context. As a school, we aim to raise awareness, provide resources and de-stigmatize mental health. And that's something we are doing together!
Welcome to LFSF!
Our Seniors are a fun and eclectic group of nearly 50 impressive students, some who have been at LFSF since preschool - we call them lifers-, and some who only joined recently but quickly found their place in our school.
This year, 10 LFSF students participated in the AEFE ADN Study Abroad program. Three international students - Sofia, Axel and Eskil (with his LFSF friend Luca) - give their feedback on this experience. From Norway, Italy, or England, they all agree on the benefits of the exchange. They made new friends and enjoyed San Francisco. They experienced the LFSF community as a big and welcoming family!
Lola has a passion for animals and cars: she volunteers in an animal shelter with her mom, and enjoys working on cars with her dad. Next year she will study Mechanical Engineering and Design at Northeastern University in Boston.
Looking back on her LFSF journey, she talks about her DEI work and her recent service learning trip to Vietnam. So long Lola! Enjoy the next step!
Emily and Ryan are proud LFSF parents. After researching their options, they decided to enroll their oldest son, Andrew, at LFSF @SAU. He is now in Gr2/CE1 and his brother is following his footstep thanks to the Happy Play program. Besides bilingualism, Ryan and Emily enjoy the way their children learn to be independent and organized. They both are very involved in the school's life as room parent (her) and Board Trustee (him). If you don't know them yet, we invite you to learn more about their story.
