Welcome New West Portal Families

On behalf of the West Portal Parents' Club, we’d like to extend a warm welcome to all families with incoming students in August 2014. We're sure before long you’ll feel right at home at West Portal Elementary.

Kinder Orientation Night is Thursday April 24th 6:30-7:30 in the auditorium.We’ve also planned three summer playdates for new kindergarteners and parents to meet other families before school starts. All playdates are at West Portal Park, down the hill from the school on Lenox Avenue. We hope you can make all three, but we understand summers are busy.

  • June 14th: 10am-noon
  • July 13th: 10am-noon
  • August 16th: 10am-noon (Kinder Fun Day)

We especially encourage you to attend Kinder Fun Day on August 16th. The kindergarten teachers will all be there, so you’ll be able to meet your child’s teacher before school starts. If you have any questions for our experienced Kinder Ambassadors who have older children attending West Portal Elementary as well as incoming kindergarteners, please contact us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

West Portal Elementary School has a long tradition of excellence. Our General Education and Cantonese Immersion programs have won national recognition for inclusive education and excellence in education. Our principal Mr. Will Lucey received the 2013 Mayor’s Principal of the Year Award and our school has been shortlisted for the 2014 California Distinguished Schools Award.

The first day of school is Monday, August 18th, 8:40am.  We'll see you then!


Parents Club Board Nominations

Our Board of Directors is filled with moms and dads just like you who want to volunteer at high level of involvement. They step up to play a leadership role in the school: deciding which programs should be a priority, organizing community and fundraising events, and keeping a watchful eye on everything around the school to make sure that all of our kids get everything they need.

If you are interested in becoming a Board member for next year, all you need to do is fill out this form.  Please apply before Friday April 25th in order to appear on the absentee ballot and give yourself the best chance of election. Most people who apply for a Board seat are voted in, so please don't hesitate if this interests you.
