May 10, 2017 – Rio Tierra Junior High

In February 31 6/7/8th grade students from Rio Tierra Junior High took a dream trip. Their activities director, Jodie Stueve, shared some of the SEA Lab activities that helped the students:

  • The ocean is more important for life in general than we had previously thought.
  • Nature is really beautiful.
  • Even in Sacramento, there are ways that students can help improve the pollution that is damaging the oceans.
  • The word-wide effects of littering.
  • Meeting kids from other schools and making new friendships.
  • The Kayaking trip in the Elkhorn Slough was spectacular.

With activities like this and help from businesses like R L Liss & ProductsHome Improvement, DREAM will be back for the next school year.Thanks Rick and Lisa for supporting DREAM’s fundraiser with posters, brochures and FB boosts!

May 3, 2017 – Creative Connections Arts Academy

As a visual and performing arts based charter school, Creative Connections Arts Academy‘s mission includes exposing their students to as much of the arts as possible. When 136 7/8th grade students experienced the B Street Theater, their teacher Tina Hughes-Corben wrote that “this trip is one of the traditional ways in which we can do that. The education materials that B Street provides helps us increase vocabulary and vocabulary skills when all of them learned about staging and costuming, particularly the drama class. The question and answer session at the end of the show is also valuable to our budding performers. We all love this opportunity each year and DREAM helps make that happen for us!”
If you want to help us provide more of this kind of experience for TR students, join us for our annual fundraiser. Just go to the front page of this website for more information and tickets.

April 26, 2017 – Pioneer Elementary School

Last year, Jamie Gross asked for help to take Pioneer Elementary 6th graders to the California Academy of Sciences. It was such a success they wanted a repeat this year. DREAM said yes.

After the trip, she sent this note: “this experience gave students an opportunity to see San Francisco and visit a museum like the Academy of Sciences. They saw many historical landmarks throughout their day and expressed uncontrollable excitement all day long!

April 19, 2017 – Woodlake Elementary School

“I never expected that I would actually see my critter and flower that I studied about! It was so cool!” –Elizabeth
“I got to see a live snake AND hold it!!” –Shylaya
“We used microscopes and saw tiny organisms! It was fantastic!” –Christopher
“The best part was when we got to go to the actual vernal pools at SPLASH and see tadpoles, fairly shrimp and detritus! Way cool!” –Jordan V.

Thank you DREAM for supporting our trip to SPLASH. We studied the environmental pools, critters and flowers for 17 weeks before attending this trip. It truly opens Science up for my students. Without DREAM helping to pay for our trip, we would not be able to go out into the field and touch and feel Science! Thank you so much! –Lisa Liss, 5th grade teacher, Woodlake School

April 5, 2017 – Madison Elementary

135 Madison School PreK/TK/K/SDC students made their visit to Fog Willow Pumpkin Farm last October. DREAM received this note from Lorelei Yates, their teacher:
“Well once again this field trip to the Fog Willow Pumpkin Farm was a huge success with the children and their parents! Of course they always love the school bus ride there and back, for many it is their first time ever on a bus so it’s very exciting! They love to look down from the high overpasses on the freeway, they get a beautiful view of Sacramento. It’s a joyful thing to hear them squealing and giggling on the bus. The pumpkin farm is so well organized with all the centers and activities that there is never a dull moment for the children. They go on a haystack ride, comb a lamb, learn about farm animals, go in a petting zoo and feed the baby goats, pigs and sheep, pick a pumpkin to take home and learn about bees while watching them in a glass beehive!”
