West Portal Elementary needs your help! 

From April 8-22, District 7 is holding a vote through its Participatory Budgeting process. West Portal School is eligible to receive up to $100,000 in City grants if we get enough votes for our 2 ballot measures! If we win, we'll be able to make major upgrades to 2 of our schoolyards (see below for details). The whole community benefits because these yards are open to the public on the weekend, through the San Francisco Shared Schoolyard project.

Here's how you can help:

1. Make sure you live in District 7. Check here: http://propertymap.sfplanning.org/

2. VOTE! Go online here: http://sfpbd7.sfgov.org/district7.html (or in person at one of 4 polling locations)

Vote for BOTH of these measures:

Renewed Area Celebrating West Portal's Past, Present, and Future - $75,000 (Yard 4)

AND

West Portal Elementary Neighborhood Green Picnic Pavilion and Play Yard - $25,000 (Yard 1)

Please review all of the ballot measures and vote for up to 4 choices per category. 

3. Tell your friends and neighbors in District 7 to vote! All District 7 Residents aged 16 or older can vote. One vote per person.

OUR BALLOT MEASURES

Renewed Area Celebrating West Portal's Past, Present, and Future - $75,000 (Yard 4)
West Portal Elementary seeks to revitalize its largest schoolyard to become part of a recreation complex with adjacent West Portal Park. Improvements include a mural celebrating West Portal’s history, resurfacing the yard with safety surface, painted running track and ball courts, new basketball goals, seating, and sun shades.

West Portal Elementary Neighborhood Green Picnic Pavilion and Play Yard - $25,000 (Yard 1)
West Portal Elementary would like to "green" the asphalt lunch yard with 12 picnic tables, 2 sun shade canopies, and artificial grass turf to cover the yard, and planting of additional trees and shrubs.  This picnic pavilion and play area will greatly improve the lunch experience for almost 600 students, who currently sit on the asphalt ground to eat lunch, and provide a welcoming space for the greater community to enjoy on weekends, when our yards are open through the San Francisco Shared Schoolyard Project. Our goals for the asphalt lunch yard would build on the adjacent garden’s transformative success.
