(0 January 2018) SFZoo_PenguinsFree.jpgWe wanted to kick off 2018 with something big, that’s why we are excited to celebrate the New Year with a very special gift to the entire Bay Area.

 

From January 8-31, we are pleased to be offering families FREE admission for all children age 14 and younger with adult paid admission.

 

For many children, meeting a giraffe, bear or lion is the highlight of their year and we can’t think of a better way to start 2018 than with a Zoo visit.

'Melissa, So Far'

popouts1748-Melissa,-So-Far-1748-popoutGateway School believes there isn't enough conversation around gender identity, particularly at a young age. With this in mind, Gateway's middle school production of Melissa, So Far tells the story of a transgender fourth grader who feels disconnected from the body she was born with.

 

Originally based on the novel, George by Alex Gino, the main character is initially bullied and isolated because of her identity, but finds solace and support in her friends and family.

 

The performance takes aim at and promotes the important conversation around gender identity at all ages. Support a greater conversation around transgender identity and meet the author and playwright during its second ever performance.

Georgiana Bruce Kirby Preparatory School
How do students know if Kirby is a good fit? A shadow day is an ideal way to find out
Date: Every Mon (Nov 1-May 1)
Ages: Family Admission Fees: FREE

Shadow Day

How do students know if Kirby is a good fit? A shadow day is an ideal way to find out. We will pair your student with a student host with similar interests. Together they will experience a "day in the life" at Kirby. They will attend classes together, hang out with other Kirby students, and enjoy lunch with their host and some of their friends.

 

How it works:

  • Monday is our preferred shadow day because of our block schedule. However, a shadow day can be scheduled any day of the week.
  • Student shadows are treated to a hot lunch made fresh in our kitchen.
  • Schedule your shadow day through the Admissions Office. Call (831) 423-0658 ×202.
