With a tooting of party horns and a toast of sparkling apple cider, members of the Caleb Greenwood Elementary School community shipped off a 200-page International Baccalaureate (IB) authorization application on Monday.
Submission of the application is one of the final steps in Caleb becoming an official IB school.
With Caleb Greenwood and Kit Carson, SCUSD’s is creating a kindergarten-through-12th grade IB track in East Sacramento, providing the community with a rigorous educational program designed to inspire children to become passionate learners.
The Rosa Parks Student Support Center and the Men’s and Women’s Active 20-30 Club of Sacramento teamed up last month to provide 100 students with a shopping spree at Kohl’s, a free back-to-school haircut courtesy the Paul Mitchell School and a brand new backpack.
Students were paired with a 20-30 member who helped them purchase clothes and shoes totaling up to $144.
The Active 20-30 Club of Sacramento also chartered buses and provided warm breakfasts for everyone.
The club’s motto states: “One never stands so tall when kneeling to help a child.”
