The faculty and staff were busy before the new school year started. Sixteen faculty and staff members were able to get their CPR and First Aid training during the summer. They were trained by Mrs. Rosanna Gomez-Martin.
Sean O'Conner, a firefighter and the emergency coordinator for the Colma Fire Protection District, also spent a day with the staff reviewing, finalizing and practicing the school's emergency plans and procedure.
Mrs. Catherine Fuerte, the school's technology coordinator, gave her yearly technology in-service. She talked about mobile learning and shared more tools that can be used to integrate technology in the classroom and in the school office.
Finally, to make sure the school year begins right, the faculty spent a day of prayers. Fr. Phillip Ganir, S.J., facilitated the retreat which focused on "contributing to the evangelizing mission of the church."
