Congratulations to Sutter Middle School students Tuyet Bach and Kasper Vue, who have been selected to represent Sacramento City Unified on the 2015 Capitol Section Middle School Honor Band.
The Honor Band includes middle school students from five counties — Sacramento, Yolo, Placer, El Dorado and South Lake Tahoe. The students participated in a two-day intensive rehearsal with guest conductor Don Werskey and presented a final concert at the Sheldon High School Performing Arts Center.
More than 400 students attended the city-wide Self Advocacy Conference, held at Sacramento State on Tuesday.
The event, hosted by SCUSD, addressed challenges that students with emotional or learning disabilities have when transitioning into adulthood. Keynote speaker Jordana Steinberg, daughter of former Senate pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, shared her story about overcoming a long battle with a childhood mood disorder.
She was joined by Yasmin Abner and Skyla Coffer, two successful young adults who have also dealt with learning disabilities.
Famed polar explorer and motivational speaker Robert Swan drew gasps and applause from Leonardo da Vinci K-8 students last Friday with his riveting tales of trekking to desolate arctic regions.
Swan holds the distinction of being the first person ever to walk unsupported – meaning without GPS, food drops or radio communications – to both the North and South Poles. His observations of the environment during these treks led him to found 2041, an organization dedicated to educating future leaders about environmental issues.
