Community Events

At San Francisco Schoolhouse, we love to celebrate community, learning, families and childhood. Here are some of our favorite annual events.


Back-to-School Picnic

On the Sunday before the first day of school, all families are invited to our first community gathering of the year in Mother’s Meadow at Golden Gate Park. Families bring a picnic lunch, reconnect with friends, and meet the newest members of the community.


Grandparents and Special Friends Day

Held on the Friday before the Thanksgiving vacation, this is a day to introduce grandparents and other special friends to our school. Grandparents are welcomed with singing, participate in the child’s classroom, and enjoy a bag lunch before a noon dismissal.


Winter Lights Celebration

Continuing a tradition started by the school's founding teachers to celebrate the winter solstice, families come together to eat, sing, and laugh. There is a potluck, lantern-making, and other fun art projects.


Pancake Breakfast

On a Saturday in mid-February, we meet at a park to enjoy a pancake breakfast with all the fixings.


Spring Celebration

Around the time of the spring equinox we gather for a community picnic and a chance to connect and play together.


Welcome Party

In early May we welcome the newest members of our community, including our new teachers and our new, incoming families. This is a fun, adults-only party.
