Spring is the best time of year to focus on health.  

For Everett students, a trip to AT&T's own vegetable garden made a day of healthy cooking a bit more exciting.  

SF Giants' broccoli, anyone
?



 


Writing Stories From Afar With Flynn

In Flynn's book making club, students took the process of writing their own books all the way to Los Angeles- virtually, of course.  

Partnering with a Creative Writing course at Biola University, the classes wrote the beginning and middle of a story together - and then competed in a friendly competition to see which class could come up with the best ending!

You're Invited: Tips for Tuition

 
Tips for Tuition
ivonne 

Last year, the Mission Promise Neighborhood and their partners were able to send 4 John O'Connell High School students off to college with support from their community.

Ivonne is completing her first year at SFSU, knowing the Mission District is behind her.

This year, we hope to show even more Mission youth that this neighborhood will help them reach their dreams.

 

Join us on March 9th from 6pm - 9pm at Cease and Desist for a night filled with great drinks, guest bartenders, and amazing local raffle prizes.

All tips from the evening will directly support the Mission Promise Neighborhood Scholarship Fund.
