Bookends is our program for before and after school and school closure days. Bookends is an important extension of our school day designed to encourage creativity and curiosity, support social development, and provide enrichment opportunities for further exploration and expression beyond our daily curriculum. Bookends is designed by Lindsey Goldberg with support from our Specials teachers plus external specialized instructors.
Afternoons at Bookends:
Afternoons at Bookends (3:30 - 6 pm) are full of fun and excitement. We engage students in a variety of activities specifically designed to nurture the whole child, from healthy snacks, academic support and quiet time, to new and adventurous activities.
Just because classes aren’t in session doesn’t mean that the fun at Alta Vista School ends. Bookends is open for the vast majority of school closure days. (See our School Calendar for dates.) Having a whole day together provides us the perfect opportunity for a half- or full-day adventure beyond the four walls of our school building and out and about in our vibrant San Francisco community.
