    Best Trophy Project Winners!!!
    Rishi R. and his robotics team (irobot) took home the Best Project trophy in the Peninsula championship! http://championship.norcalfll.org/peninsula-championship/
    They placed #5 overall with the robot mission itself --which was pretty commendable given the field, complexity and the fact that they were doing it for the first time. They had won the best 'robot design' award during the qualifying tournament held some 2 months ago, and had moved on to the super regionals. 

    Congratulations!! Great Job!

    Jump for Heart Event 2015 - American Heart Association
    Stratford School San Francisco had a fantastic time at our annual Jump Rope for Heart event!  After two weeks of fundraising for the American Heart Association, Stratford School students from preschool all the way to sixth grade enthusiastically participated in some heart-pumping activities!  Stratford students rotated through seven exercise stations, including bean bag tosses, hula hooping, running relay races, dancing to some of their favorite songs, and the signature event, jumping rope. 

    Our elementary school students benefited from the expertise of our middle school helpers, who led each of the stations.  We would like to give a special "shout-out" to our Stratford Student Council for introducing the event, and to Mr. George, Director of Athletics, who set up each of the activities.   
    As soon as all of the donations are counted, we will announce the amount raised on behalf of the American Heart Association -- Thank you to all of our Stratford families and students for supporting this community effort!
