Read Across America Pledge:
(by: Debra Angstead, Missouri-NEA)

I promise to read Each day and each night.
I know it’s the key To growing up right.
I’ll read to myself, I’ll read to a crowd.
It makes no difference If silent or loud.
I’ll read at my desk, At home and at school,
On my bean bag or bed, By the fire or pool.
Each book that I read Puts smarts in my head,
‘Cause brains grow more thoughts The more they are fed.
So I take this oath To make reading my way
Of feeding my brain What it needs every day.

“Screenagers” @ KAMS (2/15/17)

The Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD) is committed to the goal of providing students with 21st century skills required in a global economy. One way we are working towards this goal is through our district wide Digital Citizenship curriculum. In partnership with Common Sense Media, Elk Grove Unified School District presents age appropriate curriculum to all K-12 students in the district in the four areas of Digital Citizenship: Cyberbullying, Digital Footprint, Protecting Privacy, and Intellectual Property.
In conjunction with the Elk Grove Unified School District’s Digital Citizenship program, our KAMS School Social Science Department and ASB will be hosting A Digital Citizenship- Parent University Family Night screening of the documentary, “Screenagers” on February 15, 2017 at 6 pm at Katherine L. Albiani Middle School followed by a question and answer session with administrators, staff and counselors. All members of the community are invited to attend. You may RSVP for this screening at https://impactflow.com/event/presented-by-katherine-albiani-middle-school-1294 This is just one of the many activities planned for students by ASB during #unfollowbullying week at KAMS.
Katherine L. Albiani Middle School will then be presenting the documentary film “Screenagers” to all of our students through their Social Science classes in the weeks following the Parent University. A synopsis from the film’s website describes the program as, “Screenagers probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including the director’s own, and depicts messy struggles, over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through surprising insights from authors and brain scientists solutions emerge on how we can empower kids to best navigate the digital world.” The trailer for the film can be viewed here bit.ly/SCREENAGERS.
Since this critically acclaimed film is district approved, but not part of our standard Digital Citizenship curriculum; we would appreciate community support in providing this film to our students. If you’d like to make a donation to assist in offsetting the cost of providing this important resource for our students, you may either make a donation by sending cash or check to KAMS with your child. Checks can be made payable to: “KAMS – Screenagers” and turned into the Student Store during your child’s lunch period. There will also be a station set up at Parent University for anyone interested in making a donation.
We look forward to seeing your family on February 15, 2017 at the Digital Citizenship Parent University Night.

Dear Carnival Vendors,


The Sunrise Elementary School Parent Faculty Organization (PFO) will be sponsoring a Community Carnival on Friday, April 28th from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.  Our Community Carnival will be a success because of the support and participation of local businesses like yours!  The proceeds from this event will help Sunrise Elementary and the new Anatolia Elementary School opening in July 2017 pay for technology, arts, supplies, and academic programs during this school year.  We plan to host approximately 2,000 people at this exciting event, so it is also a great opportunity for your business to showcase and share information about your products and services.


Host a Vendor Booth:  The cost to reserve a booth is $50.  This includes an outdoor area approximately 10×10.  Please provide your own canopy tent and table.  Tables may be available at the school for a $260 refundable deposit if requested in advance.  Apply Here!


Host a Game or Activity:  Along with a booth to sell items or share information about your products, we invite you to bring a game or activity for families to enjoy.


Donate Raffle or Game Prizes:  We would love to support your business by including a basket of items, gift cards, or a few items from your company in our raffle.  We are also looking for small toys, pencils, stickers, or small prize items for children to win at the Carnival Games.


Sponsor a Game:  For a $75 donation to the Sunrise PFO, we will purchase materials to make a new game or refresh an old one, and place your business sign or logo provided by you next to one of our new games.


Please complete the vendor reservation (form and fee) and deliver other donations by Friday, April 7th, 2016.  Booth requests received after this date will incur a $10 late fee, and no vendor forms will be accepted after Friday, April 14th.  There are a limited number of spaces available this year, so spaces will be reserved to those who turn in the completed form and fee first.  Please complete the reservation online at www.sunrisepfo.org , or send your completed form, reservation money, and donations to the address included in the attachment.
