Dear fifth grade families,


For the 2017-18 school year,the Board of Education has decided to continue with the current practice for middle school enrollment. Due to a statewide teacher shortage and middle school buildings at capacity, students in fifth grade this year will not receive an automatic assignment for 6th grade. They can still apply to their middle school feeder and, as in the prior school year, they will receive priority.


Please submit your enrollment application by January 13, 2017, listing as many school choices as you like, including the middle school feeder if that is your choice. You can submit the pre-printed application at your child’s current school by January 13, 2017.


Please feel free to speak with a placement counselor from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. any weekday at the Educational Placement Center -- located at 655 DeHaro St. from now through December 16 --  or at 555 Franklin Street, starting December 20.  


We will also be holding informational meetings regarding the elementary to middle school assignment process in November and December:

  • 6 p.m. Monday, November 21, at James Lick Middle School, 1220 Noe Street (sessions will be in English and Spanish)
  • 6 p.m. Monday, November 28, at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, 350 Girard Street (sessions will be in English, Spanish and Cantonese)
  • 6 p.m. Thursday, December 1, at Roosevelt Middle School, 460 Arguello Blvd. (sessions will be in English and Cantonese)

More information on middle school feeders is on our FAQ.


We look forward to helping you find the right middle school for your child.


Sincerely,


Myong Leigh
Interim Superintendent

Welcome to George R. Moscone Elementary School

About Our School

     Located in the historic Mission District, George R. Moscone Elementary has a multi-ethnic student body, rich in cultural and linguistic diversity.  We have approximately 370 students in grades K-5. We service our diverse student body with programs in Chinese, Spanish and English Language Development.  We focus on a rigorous academic program emphasizing language arts, math, science, social studies, balanced with performing and visual arts.
 

Academic Programs

Biliteracy Pathway K – 5th grade
Spanish Bilingual & Cantonese Bilingual
In the Biliteracy Pathway, students develop proficiency, literacy and academic competency in both English and the student’s primary language. As of August 2015, our programs now provide instruction in Spanish and Chinese kindergarten through 5th grade. 

English Language Development K – 5th grade
Intensive English Program

Provides English Language Learners with the opportunity to acquire English and to access the core curriculum.  All instruction is provided in English.

Enrichment and Intervention Programs

All students at Moscone participate in Movement & Dance Classes throughout the year, culminating in a dance performance at the end of the school year. We staff one visual art teacher, and a physical education teacher; both work with all students throughout the year.  An instrumental Music Program is available in 4th and 5th grades. Our Education Outside-Garden, Science and Nutrition Coordinator hosts classes in our Moscone Garden. All students work in the computer lab weekly, and have access to computers in their classrooms. Our part-time librarian reads with classes weekly, and weaves on-line literacy into her instruction.

A Reading Recovery teacher supports struggling readers in the lower grades. Our Upper Grade Literacy Support teacher works to ensure that 3rd - 5th grade students continue to progress with academic language and accessing grade level content. All classes enjoy learning outside of the classroom on field trips.

From classroom volunteering, to school government or fundraising, parents have many opportunities to be involved at Moscone. Parents are welcome to visit the school on Wednesday mornings at 8:15; School Visits will begin after the Enrollment Fair on October 29, 2016
