There are many easy ways to support our school financially without spending any additional money, from local retailers of all kinds to eScrip and virtual box tops. Take a look at our Shop for Sloat section to see all the ways you can help raise money to support all the great programs we have at Commodore Sloat.


Consider volunteering!  We have many great ways to volunteer at the school: being a room parent, joining a committee, or helping to run an event. Check out the bulletin boards in the office when you’re on campus for orientation or during the first week of school. Volunteer opportunities are also sent out via ParentSquare, our intra-school communications tool.


There is always someone here to help! Please feel free to call the office at (415) 759-2807 or email [email protected] and we’ll do our best to help you.
