The dappled leaves rustle. A low wind breathes through the branches. The May flowers turn their faces to see. A magical creature parts the undergrowth and shines upon the clearing! It is What We Have In Common, the second collection of writing from students of our Mission Bay after-school tutoring program.
826 Valencia’s mission has always been to bring joy and wonder to our students, to invite them to explore, and to empower them to express themselves through their writing. What We Have In Common reflects our students' thoughts on community, friendship, and growth in San Francisco's newest neighborhood.
