Heather Mes, site supervisor from Del Paso Elementary, wrote us in January requesting $136 to take 21 pre-K students to Safetyville USA. She wrote “the children will be going to kindergarten next year and many of them will be walking with siblings or riding the bus for the first time. The goal is to make it less scary for them, give them the confidence to walk to school. The motto of Twin Rivers ECE is: be safe, be kind, be clean.”
Another month and more DREAMs funded at last night’s board meeting:
Michellel Rossi and Brenda Hin from Babcock Elementary asked for $247 to take their 52 2nd graders to Fog Willow Farms.”The students will learn, create and enjoy science through fun, interactive and imaginative activities. It’s always fun to see their excitement when the bus gets out into rural Sacramento County. Many haven’t left their neighborhood.”
Sent to us from Etelvina Carrazana, Harmon Johnson: “When our 6th grade students return from Sly Park (Science Camp), they can talk about nothing else. For many this is their first time away from home on a grand adventure. They experience night hikes, see the stars, touch and learn about animals, pan for gold, make facepaint with soil and clay. They return home a little more independent and more excited about science.”
