Why Donate? This year, the PTSA is making a strong commitment to preserve and expand the range of activities available for students. We are setting aside more than $40,000 to invest in infrastructure for our elective classes (such as the Maker Lab, band and orchestra, Chinese immersion, and others), and to retain a drama program that otherwise would have been lost due to teacher turnover. We need your support for these critical investments that enrich our children’s experience at Aptos!

URGENT, URGENT, URGENT!!!

Parents that are parking on Upland on the side of the building this is a School Bus zone from 8-10am and from 3-4pm. we would appreciate if you would not block this area during those times due to the congestion it causes the school buses. If you would like to drop of your child, please do so in front of the building on Aptos Ave. Please do not park in the areas marked red. The areas that are yellow are okay for dropping off your student.

Principal’s Welcome Letter 2019-2020

Dear Aptos Students & Families,

It is with great honor and privilege that the Aptos Middle School community welcomes you to “The Tigers’ Lair” for the 2019-2020 school year! Middle school is a magical time of discovery and transformation set against the backdrop of adolescent ups and downs for students, parents, and educators alike! During these short three years, it is imperative that we build collaborative partnerships to ensure our students access all opportunities to discover their sense of purpose and develop the skills and essential knowledge to become change agents in our 21st century world. 

In looking ahead at the school year, we are focused on providing transparency and clarity around our priorities so we can work together as a community to realize our collective goals. I am excited to share two new community campaigns for the 2019-2020 school year. Our Get Lit! Campaign is focused on strengthening literacy and building a culture of reading. At Aptos, we read to empower our minds, expand our perspectives, and explore our imaginations. Our Get Connected! Campaign is focused on building community and creating safe spaces for learning. At Aptos, we discover our passions, value our differences, and include all voices. We look forward to getting started with you. We must innovate to liberate! 

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL: The first day of school is Monday, August 19, 2019 and students should report to school by 9:10am. Homeroom numbers will be posted in the hallways and in the cafeteria on the first day of school. Our sixth grade students should report directly to the auditorium for their orientation to Aptos. Our 7th and 8th grade students should report directly to their homerooms. Schedules will be distributed to students by their homeroom teachers.

MANDATORY FORMS: The following forms will be sent home with all students on the first day of school and must be completed and submitted to homeroom teachers by Friday, August 23, 2019.  Upon successful completion and submission of these forms, students will be assigned their lockers for the school year.

  1. Aptos Expectations & Policies

  2. Emergency Card

  3. SFUSD School Meal Application

  4. SFUSD Parent/Guardian/Caregiver Acknowledgment Form for Student & Family Handbook

  5. SFUSD Notice to Parents/Student’s Acceptable Use Agreement for Internet & Technology

  6. Media and Community Access Opt-Out (only if you do not want your child to be interviewed, photographed, or filmed for use in various media)

Please take a moment to review the additional documents in this packet - Aptos Survival Guide, PTSA Membership Form, Back to School Events and Sports Tryouts, Aptos Calendar Year At-A-Glance, Aptos Traffic Map, and Beacon Programs Overview Flyer. Translated copies are available on our school website. 

We look forward to meeting you all in the coming days. Our doors are open and we are excited to create and strengthen relationships with our students and families this year.

In community,

Nicole Trickett, Principal
