The team at Priority Graphics was honored to be selected to work with San Francisco Unified School District on the new signage for the Newcomer School in Chinatown. To honor the memory of the late Edwin Lee, San Francisco’s first Chinese American Mayor, The Chinese Education Center was officially renamed the Edwin and Anita Lee Newcomer School in August of 2018.

Priority Graphics completed four main entrance signs including main entrance lettering and projected flag mounted signs in preparation for the start of the new school year for the K-Grade 5 elementary school.  Priority Graphics installed the original lettering at Chinese Education Center in the early 2000’s and was able to use previous design files as a resource for the name change.

“Our firm is particularly proud to be part of honoring our Late Mayor Lee who was such a strong supporter of small business in San Francisco.  His warmth, generosity, spirit and unwavering commitment to all in our community is something we will not forget.”  Juliana Choy Sommer, President

Maria Santana, Vice President for Projects at Priority Graphics says “Priority was honored to be a part of such a special project to celebrate late Mayor Ed Lee and his wife Anita in the renaming project at the Chinese Education Center. We truly enjoyed working so closely with SFUSD (San Francisco Unified School District) to develop a visually-captivating design for the banners and dimensional lettering which we then installed above the entry walkway for both school entrances prior to the start of the 2019 school year.”
