Digital Citizenship Week – Oct. 17 – 23

EGUSD recognizes Digital Citizenship Week (Oct. 17 – 23, 2021). Digital Citizenship Week is the perfect opportunity for schools and families to reflect on how they can work together and prepare our students to think critically, be kind and respectful to others online, and to use their technology/devices and social media in positive, creative and powerful ways. Digital Citizenship instruction strives to help students gain the tools to be safe, productive, kind, responsible, and respectful members of online communities.

National Hispanic Heritage Month

Elk Grove Unified School District proudly recognizes Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 – Oct. 15, 2021). Our EGUSD family celebrates the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. Similar to other states, in California alone, Latinos make up the largest ethnic group, so there are plenty of reasons and ways to celebrate.
