Lowell Summer Health Education (at Lincoln High School)

Thanks to the PTSA funding, Lowell is able to offer its students Health Education courses this summer again.  This year, due to construction on Lowell’s campus, Lowell’s Health Education Summer Class will be held on Lincoln High School’s campus.  According to the tentative calendar of the district summer schools, courses may be offered in two sessions (dates are tentative and may change according to district summer school dates).

 

Session 1:                  June 10th—June 25th                         8:00AM—1:30PM
Session 2:                  June 29th—July 15th                          8:00AM—1:30PM

 

Students who choose to attend the Lowell Health Education course MUST attend all classes as scheduled.  Students with less than 60 hours of seating time will not receive credit for the course.  If you have three (3) tardies, you may be dropped from the class as well.  Since spaces are limited, priority will be given to the first 80 students per session. Priority will be given to the Class of 2016 (1st), 2017 (2nd), 2018 (3rd). 

Application must be submitted to the counseling office before Friday, MAY 1, 2015

Encourage your child to try new, student developed school lunches!

Get excited for some brand-new lunches on the menu on April 7, 9, and 14! SFUSD students helped design these meals, which are made of premium ingredients according to the district’s stringent “real food” standards:  

  • Orange Chicken Rice Bowl, on the menu for the first time April 7: Seasoned brown rice topped with grilled chicken and carrots, tossed in our house orange sauce made with just a hint of chili flakes, and served alongside edamame, fresh fruit, and milk.

  • Chicken Pizza Party Salad, on the menu for the first time April 9: Crisp romaine lettuce topped with grilled chicken, parmesan cheese, and croutons, served with a 'pizza sauce' dressing and a whole grain dinner roll. Served alongside broccoli and ranch, fresh fruit, and milk.

  • Mac & Cheeseburger Pasta, on the menu for the first time April 14: Whole-grain rich macaroni noodles topped with a tangy tomato sauce, seasoned ground beef, and cheddar cheese. Served with broccoli, fresh fruit, and milk.
