- Cafeteria Lunch Menu:Lunch today is deluxe hamburger with fixings and garlic fries. Lunch includes salad bar, seasonal fruit and your choice of milk.
- Morning Announcements: Do you think you can do a better job reading the morning announcements? Well here is your chance. See Ms. Isabelle Rodrigues in the office to try out - Thank you.
- Trip to Europe: Hey Broncos, how does a trip to Italy sound? Mr. D is leading a trip for 7th and 8th grade students at the end of this school year. You'll see some of history's greatest masterpieces, including the Colosseum and Statue of David and three of the world's great cities in Rome, Venice and Florence. And, of course, there'll be Italian food. Stop by Room 106 at break for more information. – Mr. D’Antonio
- Tardy Contest: Students, the class with the least tardies this week, will be released 5 minutes early for lunch all of next week. –Admin
- No Backpacks Left Unattended: Broncos, hopefully everyone has a working lock and locker to put your backpacks. Backpacks are not allowed on the Field at lunchtime. Any backpack left unattended will go to the Office, and you will be assigned a lunch detention. Please put your backpack in your locker at the beginning of lunch, within the first 5 minutes before the buildings are locked, if you want to go to the Field. -- Admin.
- Boxtops for Books: We collect box tops by General Mills! You may have seen one on different food or kitchen supplies packaging. They are small squares on a dark pink background that say "box tops" and then the word "education" looks like it is written on a small pencil. There is an expiration date at the bottom of the box top. All you need to do is cut around the box tops and give them to your English teacher. Your English teacher now has a special envelope to collect box tops. As you gather box tops from friends and families, please turn them in to your English teacher. Every quarter the envelopes will be collected, counted, and mailed off to General Mills. We will announce which teachers' classes have collected the most. Ms. Hall, 8th grader English teacher, is the reigning champion of Box Top Collections. We earn 10 cents per box top for our school. To kick off our collection year, if you have saved any from over the summer, bring them in to room 108 before school anytime this week and this week only. I will give credit for your box tops to your English teacher and present you with several Bronco Stars. After next week you can turn them in directly to your English teacher. Box Tops for Books! –Mrs. Turner
- Library:Welcome back to a new year! The library is only open for textbook checkout. We will be officially open for all other business very soon so stay tuned to the announcements. Thank you! - Ms. Kang
Please remember to take care of yourself, take care of one another and take care of Bancroft! Go Broncos!!
All students will take their picture for ID cards.

📰 SLUSD Latest News
Welcome to another exciting year of learning, connecting and achieving in the San Leandro Unified School District. As a community, we are focused on building a “Culture of Excellence” as detailed in our three-year Strategic Action Plan. With year one complete, we are proud of our many accomplishments including receiving the distinguished AP District of the Year Award from the College Board, expanding opportunities for early bilingual education and infusing socio-emotional learning in our classrooms. Our ultimate goal is to prepare students, both academically and socially, to be life-long learners, effective communicators and responsible and involved citizens.
NBC Bay Area news crews recently visited San Leandro High School to tour the newly remodeled state-of-the-art broadcasting studio with the award-winning twin principals, Drs. Ronald and Reginald Richardson. Reporter Bob Redell and team came to hear more about the Advanced Placement District of the Year award that was presented to San Leandro district administrators and teachers this summer in Houston, TX. The Richardsons used the opportunity to showcase the newly remodeled broadcasting studio as an example of the district’s commitment to increasing access and equity not only in advanced academic programming but also in real-world work opportunities through the many career pathway options at SLHS.
60 new teachers are joining the San Leandro Unified School District for the 2018-19 school year. At their annual new teacher orientation event at the Barbara Lee Health and Wellness Center, the excited group was welcomed by their district and site leaders to prepare for the 2018-19 school year. Each had been personally invited via phone by SLUSD district superintendent Dr. Michael McLaughlin prior to the event.
Last January, San Leandro Unified School District took advantage of a free state testing program to have all of their schools’ drinking water tested for lead. This move was a proactive response to State Assembly Bill 746, which went into effect January 1, 2018, requiring all public schools in California to have their water tested for the presence of lead. None of the school sites within the district exceeded the federal standard of 15 parts per billion.
San Leandro Unified School District is pleased to announce several new leaders have joined the administrative team for the upcoming school year. These educators were chosen to fill important existing positions within the district as well as newly created posts to further ambitious goals outlined in the 2017-2020 strategic action plan.
