Hi Presidio Family!
Despite March being a longer calendar month, it certainly flew by! We were quite busy up until the very end with Board and PTSO meetings, the beginning of standardized assessment season, and our first annual High School Production. I had the privilege of being part of the audience and hearing some of the “behind the scenes” stories and it reminded me why we call ourselves the #PresidioFamily.
This production was a year in the making. The script, written by Sifu, was drafted and revised over the summer of 2022 and presented to students at the beginning of the school year. Characters went through many revisions, leads and understudies. due to illness, other obligations, and movement between schools. Students spent breaks, weekends, and long nights creating the backdrops, sending foot pictures (Ask Praud and Nick for additional information!), and countless painting revisions to bring the scenery to life.
The production was very much a student-led production, supported by the amazing teachers in the Specials Team. With their guidance, the students were able to create a punny, goofy, all inclusive, production that could not have more accurately depicted the Presidio High School. Parents, staff, and families from all age levels attended, just proving how supportive and involved our community is in our school.
This time of year is particularly challenging with standardized assessments, end of the year preparations, and finalizing summer plans. It’s easy to get caught up in the “overwhelm” and forget why we are here, so thank you to our Specials Team, high school students, and Presidio community for renewing my spark!
