Congratulations, Carver Authors
Congratulations to our Carver published authors! Thirty-one students participated in the language arts instruction by 916Ink thanks in part to a Community Enhancement Fund grant from the City of Rancho Cordova. Their work is titled “Journey to Nowhere” and is filled with inspiring poetry and prose.
Winning Caring for Our Watershed Proposals
Two student teams (Anahi Orozco, Giselle Pantoja, Ryan Mengell, Rachel Freidberg, and Barcelona Boyd) at Sacramento City Unified School District’s George Washington Carver School of Arts and Science in Rancho Cordova placed in the Top 10 out of 550 proposals submitted at the Caring for Our Watersheds Competition! One student team submitted a proposal that would enhance habitats for bees and other pollinators while another team focused on ways to reduce waste at school. Both projects are already being implemented on campus by switching out plastic “spork” packets for real silverware and introducing a pollinator garden.
