Calendars for Sale – $10

Mrs. Pike’s Class is selling calendars!  Here is a sample of the beautiful artwork included in the calendars!


Mrs. Pike’s SCOE (Sacramento County Office of Education) classroom is located here on our Sunrise Elementary Campus and serves students aged 5 – 14 years of age who have severe cognitive and physical disabilities. Throughout their school day, students work on both daily living skills and pre-academics. These students work extremely hard and we have seen incredible growth in each of them over the school year.

Each year they make calendars using students’ hand and foot prints. This year the calendar is “Disney Themed” and features various characters from Disney Movies. Calendars are $10 each. All proceeds go to purchase technology and sensory equipment that will help students succeed.

Please email Bobbie at if you would like to order a calendar for the New Year.

If you would like an example of the kind of technology that they are currently working towards you may visit Mrs. Pike’s donors choose page using the link below:
