Elk Grove Unified School District proudly recognizes Sikh American Awareness and Appreciation Month (Nov. 1 – 30). Sikh Americans have resided in California for more than a century, with the first Sikh immigrants having labored on railroad construction projects, in lumber mills, and in the agricultural heartlands of the Sacramento, San Joaquin and Imperial valleys. Our EGUSD family acknowledges and celebrates the Sikh and Punjabi American communities who continue to make important contributions to our state and nation.
