Since its inception in 1999, the Week of the Family Committee has designated the Monday evening of the week as a night reserved for families to stay at home and do something specifically with their family. It is hoped that reserving one night per week will become habit-forming. To show their support, San Carlos principals unanimously declared Monday, as a “No Homework” night.

Family Activity Night is for everyone. You are encouraged to “adopt” friends and neighbors who would enjoy an evening of family activities.

Ideas for things to do as a family:

  • Play board or card games
  • Get out the family photo album
  • Make up a play or story
