We are excited to share that the district is transitioning from School Loop to Synergy’s Gradebook Family and Student Portals in August 2017. This transition to Synergy will provide SFUSD’s students, families, teachers, and district staff with a unified system for real-time information on classes, grades, assignments, and more. While we know change can be challenging, we firmly believe the transition to Synergy Gradebook will increase efficiency for teachers and improve access for our students and families.

 

What does this mean for students and families?
Starting in August 2017, students and families will log in to Synergy’s Family and Student Portals to access student information related to attendance, assignments and grading. Our transition to Synergy is a response to feedback we have heard from school communities about the need to streamline the number of online systems we use for school-family communications.  Our team will be reaching out to families via parent groups and advisory councils, email, School Messenger, school websites, and School Loop to inform them of the change and provide opportunities to learn more and prepare for the transition in August 2017.  

 

Why are we making this change?

  • One login for attendance and grades for teachers and district staff
  • One login per family, regardless of the number of children and which school they attend
  • Greater clarification and standardization of SFUSD grading practices and policies
  • Increased security and confidentiality of student and parent information
  • Actionable real-time student performance information
  • Improved accessibility for individuals with disabilities
  • Improved translation options

What will happen with School Loop?
School Loop will continue to be used for school websites next year. However, teachers, students and families will use Synergy instead of School Loop for other communications and  information about grades and assignments.

 

We are confident that Synergy Gradebook is another exciting step to leverage technology to increase engagement in our school communities, enhance data integrity and security, and better position us for 21st century learning, as outlined in Vision 2025 and our Digital District Plan.

SFUSD encourages students to be in school every day, and we are committed to keeping them safe and fostering learning. We recognize that there are times when students and their families may choose to participate in activities such as demonstrations or strikes outside of school during the regular school day. While we respect and support our students' rights to express their views, please note that participation in a demonstration, walkout or strike will not be counted as an excused absence. ‚Äč

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
