On Tuesday, August, 8th, 2017, San Francisco City Academy (SFCA) hosted back to school night! Students, teachers, parents and school staff gathered in expectation of the coming new school year! 

Mrs. Elaine Chea welcomed parents and students and shared about her experience and passion being at SFCA since 2004. "It is because of one man, Pastor Roger, who intervened, that we are here. We [teachers], are now here for you and to empower your child and release them to excel academically, spiritually, socially and physically."

New teachers were introduced including Ms. Stephens the 1st Grade Teacher, Ms. Schaefer, teaching 2nd Grade, and Ms. Park, the 7-8th Grade Teacher this year. Mrs. Chea who previously taught 1st Grade will be stepping into the role of Academic Development Coordinator to assist each teacher at SFCA. SFCA Board member Joanne T. was also in attendance of the night. 

Here are some details & topics of the night:

City Academy Choir

On Saturday, October 22nd, the San Francisco City Academy Choir performed at the City Impact 2016 Annual Gala. The event was held at Social Hall SF where over 200 people gathered to hear about updates from San Francisco City Impact ministries in including City Academy

Over 15 City Academy students gathered to worship and sing at the Gala, led by 4th Grade Teacher, Lauren Lackey. Check out the video below of the kids choir. 

Also 8th grade student El Shaddai was recognized for his growth and achievements, socially, spiritually and academically. El Shaddai shared his story and testimony of his relationship with Christ. "I came to SFCA [San Francisco City Academy]  two years ago and things started to get better. The teacher's never cared about me and never gave up on me. But I still struggled with sin...I was mixed up with the wrong crowd. I needed good role models and that is exactly what I've found at SFCA. I gave my life to Christ on a trip to Fort Bragg with my [SFCA] basketball team last year. I've been going to discipleship group with my PE teacher every thursday. Through discipleship group I learned about Jesus and what he did on the cross for me and forgives me even though I mess up. Because of Jesus and the hard work of the teachers at SFCA I made honor roll this quarter with a 3.8 GPA."
