Dear Colleagues and School Community of Balboa High School,

 

I want to take this opportunity to personally and publicly thank Ms. Susan Ritter for her sixteen years of service to SFUSD and for her commitment and dedication to the community at Balboa High School.  She has held the vision and mission of Balboa with steady focus in her role as Principal.  I also want to recognize that transitions can be difficult.  The Balboa family has remained focused and dedicated in this period of change.

 

On March 18, 2017 a group of Balboa Community members served on an interview panel to make recommendations about your new principal.  I want to personally thank the student, alumni, teachers, staff, and administrators that dedicated an entire Saturday to participate in this process.  Last evening the Board of Education approved the recommendation of the site recommendation committee and the Superintendent.

 

It is my honor to announce that Mr. Freedom Siyam will be the new Principal of Balboa High School.  

 

Mr. Siyam has roots in Filipino American community based organizations of San Francisco.  His career spans that of a social studies teacher for public-school dropouts, coordinator for  race-and-politics workshops for college students, and school leader in both Seattle and San Francisco working with students and families to gain and sustain access to the wrap around services they need to graduate and succeed beyond high school.

 

Please join me in officially welcoming Mr. Freedom Siyam  as the new principal of Balboa High School!

 

Sincerely,


 

Bill W. Sanderson                  

Assistant Superintendent of High Schools   

 

Han Phung

Director of Principal Leadership and Support

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.

So close, yet so far away.  From 1910 to 1940, many Angel Island Immigration Station immigrants experienced these feelings upon reaching America, but were detained from entering San Francisco.  On May 7, 2017 (12:00-3:00), the San Francisco Public Library Main Library will celebrate Asian Pacific Islander American Heritage Month by spotlighting personal immigrant stories from those who went through Angel Island.


Look forward to educational games and craft activities for all ages, a display of Angel Island family histories, books, news articles, and photos. The first 50 children ages 12 and under will receive a goody bag.

 

Co-sponsors: the Asian American Studies Department at San Francisco State University, TACT (The Association of Chinese Teachers), the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation, and the Square and Circle Club.
