San Francisco has some of the world’s best drinking water straight from the tap! Learn why plastic bottled water is bad for our health and the environment. This popular assembly features an image-based slide show that includes the story of San Francisco’s water supply starting with the Gold Rush era, and how we now get our tap water from the Hetch Hetchy reservoir in Yosemite National Park. All Galileo students will receive a stainless steel ‘Drink Tap’ refillable bottle and will be encouraged to fill their bottles at Galileo’s new ‘Drink Tap’ filling station.

The Mighty Galileo Lions roared on Thanksgiving Day in the Turkey Bowl and beat the Lincoln Mustangs in a very exciting game with a score of 34 – 30. This was the 90th Football Championship for San Francisco Public High Schools, and was Galileo’s 17th win for the Football Championship Game, more than any other high school in the school district. Our players were outstanding in this very exciting game! And equally as exciting as the game were the Galileo Cheerleaders! They looked sharp, cheered well and contributed to the victory! Our stands were packed and everyone had a grand time! Go Mighty Lions!
