    SSFHS Warrior Logo Survey

    Thank you so much for your participation in our surveys!

    Greetings South San Francisco Community and Warriors!
    We are excited to share with you the early progress and findings of the Logo Committee, made up of current students and faculty members from South San Francisco High School.

    In this time of transition and change, we are so encouraged by the continued participation and collaboration with current students, alumni, and community members. Two surveys, which each received hundreds of responses, have helped guide the committee’s decisions thus far. Both surveys were distributed via social media, email, and word of mouth.
    The first survey asked participants to indicate what logo they would most like to see represent the South City brand. Of the options provided, 44 percent indicated Spartan or Trojan as their first choice. These findings will guide the branding branch of the committee to create a base logo. We are working on an agreement with a branding
    company, which will enable us to choose variations of this base logo to incorporate the other top choices, including lettering and object symbolism.

    The branding company will help manifest this vision, while still keeping the integrity of the original image and color scheme, establishing a unified platform schoolwide.
    The second survey asked participants what “Warrior” means to them. Participants most often cited strength, bravery, and courage. We also received several narrative responses, detailing personal experiences within the South City community. As stories will help us incorporate these key ideas in the rebranding process, this second survey
    remains open for responses.
    Overall, our goal remains the same: to create a recognizable South City brand representative of the resilience of our community. Thank you for all your responses. We will continue to keep you updated.

    Sincerely,

    South San Francisco High School

    Ballet Folklorico Alma de Mexico traveled to Disneyland and California Adventure to perform March 12-14.  The trip was hampered by both rain and COVID-19 closing the parks on Saturday the 14th.

    Students and parents still had some fun at both parks, even in the rain.  For many students, their first time at Disneyland, will always be a great memory!

    Thanks for representing South City!

    Jackie Speier visits

    South San Francisco High

    South San Francisco High School and the district were honored to host Congresswoman Jackie Speier and Professor Bernadette Meyler to discuss the consequences of the ongoing impeachment process and our Constitution.

    Organized in conjunction with the San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE), the forum took place at the South San Francisco High School auditorium and was open to all residents of San Francisco and San Mateo Counties.

    Congresswoman Speier represents California's 14th congressional district, which includes much of San Mateo County and a portion of San Francisco County.

    Students and community members asked excellent questions about the Impeachment process and it was an engaging and informative evening.  Thank you to those that helped make it happen!
