Argonne Family Letter from the Principal, 9/21/20
Mon, Sep 21 10:22am

Dear Argonne Families,

I hope everyone enjoyed a beautiful weekend with your families. The air was fresh and the sun was shining! And to our families celebrating Rosh Hashanah- Happy New Year!

This week, we continue to settle into the school year. Teachers schedules may shift to accommodate new specialists schedules being added. Thank you for your understanding and supporting your child every step of the way! 

Here are the updates for the week:

  • Cafeteria Redesign Project: Argonne will participate in SFUSD’s Cafeteria Redesign Project this year! In an effort to reimagine the entire dining experience, Student Nutrition Services is creating student-centered spaces, supporting our goal of creating dignified built environments. The result of this transformation is an incredible dining area (cafeteria) outfitted with new furniture, graphics and artwork. Here are some photos from recently completed redesigns: El Dorado ES, Sunnyside ES, Junipero Serra ES, Miraloma ES and Bryant ES. Designers would love to collect student input on the project. This form will be shared with students via Google Classrooms. I will also hold a student Office Hours Zoom Meeting to collect student input on the project. Please note that this Zoom Meeting will be recorded to share with designers. And finally, project designers will host an online workshop for students as well. Details on the workshop will be shared in your child’s Google Classroom. I’m looking forward to seeing the ideas our students come up with!

  • Principal Coffee Klatch this Friday, 9/25 from 9:00-10:00am. Principal Coffee Klatches or chats are a time for me to gather with parents and guardians with the intention of listening and learning together. This Friday, we will take a look at SFUSD’s Distance Learning Priorities and discuss with other families in breakout rooms. Here is the Zoom Link:, Meeting ID: 861 8544 7688, Passcode: 233038
