It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year @ SFOA!

On behalf of this year’s student leadership council, we are pleased to share their schedule for SFOA’s 8 Days of Christmas from December 13 - December 22. Please note, theme days are meant to be good-natured fun, and families are not expected to purchase items. If your child chooses to participate, use what you have at home and get creative! We are proud of our student council and happy to support their work to spread a little holiday cheer with all.
